“Yesterday we were talking about a study that says you’re supposed to shower once or twice every three days. I had an opinion on it that was supposed to be a joke. Apparently it didn’t go over so well.” — Naya Rivera
While guest-hosting The View on Tuesday, Glee actress and singer, Naya Rivera shared her personal theory on race and showering.
“I have to say I have a theory about showering, which is that I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics. I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing.”
Now white people gonna think we don't shower cuz of Naya Rivera

Well, now Naya is apologizing for her stupid comments. Yesterday, when the 28-year-old actress returned to The View to co-host again — she decided to change her ‘theory’ — and is now saying she was only joking.
“Showering. Biggest topic in pop culture today, in my opinion. Thanks to me, unfortunately,” she said during the “Hot Topics” segment. “Yesterday, we were talking about a study that says you’re supposed to shower once or twice every three days. I had an opinion on it that was supposed to be a joke. Apparently it didn’t go over so well… I apologize if anyone was offended. However, I’m very excited that it sparked a big conversation about how many times you should shower.”
Naya Tweeted another response in-regards to the controversy surrounding her comment:
When you get out of the shower today, get a sense of humor. Love ya!
