Bethenny Frankel Let's Discuss: The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Let’s Discuss! Was Bethenny Frankel’s Cinco de Mayo Photo Offensive??

RHONY’s Bethenny Frankel may have made her millions by selling margaritas; however she’s definitely no expert (and frankly a little tone deaf) when it comes to celebrating the Mexican culture.

Bethenny recently celebrated Cinco de Mayo as, naturally, the Skinnygirl loves herself some tequila. Unfortunately for the B, she decided to dress up with accessories that stereotype the Mexican culture and many found offensive. Bethenny’s Cinco de Mayo gear include a large fake mustache, an over sized sombrero, maracas and even had her dogs taking part in the photo shoot:

Many fans found the photo offensive with comments including that she should take it down and that for someone who claims to be so sensitive to other cultures, she was being a hypocrite. We all remember how hard she was on Luann for her Diana Ross getup, don’t we?

Bethenny must have seen their side as the post has since been removed. For someone who loves to give others a hard time and who has visited Mexico numerous times you think she would have known better. My main issue with Bethenny is that she has a ‘holier than thou’ mentality, yet still is tone deaf with a lot of her posts. This isn’t Bethenny’s first offense as she was previously criticized for wearing her daughters Brynn’s pajamas (something which she claimed she didn’t understand the hoopla surrounding it.) Hopefully by taking down the photo Bethenny is admitting that she doesn’t really “know it all!”

Thoughts on Bethenny’s photo? Did you find it offensive?
