Hillary Clinton's Team Thinks She's Just Like Your Abuela, Twitter Disagrees


Today, Hillary Clinton's campaign team put out a list titled, " 7 Ways Hillary Clinton Is Just Like Your Abuela." And unsurprisingly, people on Twitter aren't too happy about it.

Shortly after, #NotMyAbuela began trending on Twitter and users called the move "Hispandering" from Clinton's team.

The list includes gifs after points like "She reacts this way when people le faltan el respeto..." or "She reacts this way when people disrespect her..."


Some Twitter users called the list "out of touch," saying it wasn't reflective of the Latino experience.

"My Abuela came to this country with a 6th grade education and worked in favorites for 50 something cents to a Man's dollar," one person tweeted.

Here are more reasons Twitter users say Hillary Clinton is #NotMyAbuela:
