Someone Disrespected Selena Quintanilla’s Statue and I’m Angry

Recommended Posts


Someone disrespected Selena’s statue (El Mirado de la Flor) And I’m Angry!

He can have any political views he wants but please don’t involve an icon like Selena. Selena never involved politics into anything she gave us and he has no right to do this. Not to mention, he’s a Latino! I’m embarrassed AF.


A photo of the iconic Selena statue in Corpus Christi wearing a Trump hat has sparked outrage from fans of the Tejano singer.

The Corpus Christi Crónica, a bilingual newspaper in Nueces County, posted a photo of a man named Joe Michael Perez with a caption detailing his support for President Donald Trump. Perez, who owns a Trump memorabilia shop inside the Corpus Christi Trade Center, submitted the photo himself to Eric Lee Tunchez, the Crónica’s business owner.

Selena’s dad also commented on this.


"I think he is a disrespectful idiot," says Abraham Quintanilla, Selena's father. "Selena was never involved with politics."

He was also interviewed. This is what he had to say.

Exactly. It’s disgusting! It goes against everything she stood and still stands for.

Okay what the actual fu.ck. This makes me so f.ucking angry. :beat: The face mask and life vest aren't terrible - I'm sure they don't come from a place of negativity. However, putting a f.ucking Trump hat on her?? BEYOND DISRESPECTFUL. At this point, I want the statue made off limits to people. They shouldn't be allowed to vandalize both the statue and her legacy. Knowing how dumb people can be, someone might see this photo and actually think she's associated with him. God I'm disgusted and horrified. :crying1:
