"@EvelynLozada oh NOW you Afro Latina? #GurlBye you aint never called yourself that. You dont have a Black parent. Stay in your NON BLACK Lane," one netizen called her out.
"Y’all are really going to allow Evelyn Lozada, who clearly hates and thinks she’s above black women to get away with calling herself Afro Latina. It’s funny how folks want to claim African ancestry when it’s convenient for them #BBWLA," another internet user countered.
"Evelyn has never identified as black a day in her life. I’m not even gonna believe her “Afro Latina” talk cause I know it’s a lie from the pit of hell," wrote a bitter netizen.
"You ladies are far too ignorant. You pick on your cast mate's appearances or the way they dress, not to forget all the age shaming. You only identifying as Afro Latino since you've been called out for your colorist antics #bbwives," one Twitter user observed.
"Evelyn Lozada is quite obviously afro-latinx."
Evelyn Lozada only acknowledging that when she is being called out about anti-black statements is gross.
A speculative fan wrote:
"In the words of Tiffany Pollard if you are black sit in it...in all shades. Blackness isn’t a “gotcha.”
Evelyn Lozada in a bid to maintain her claims responded to some of the tweets by writing:
"I never discussed my ethnicity on TV because quite honestly until recently, I never felt the need to until comments were made about me “thinking” I was black. How many of us feel the need to go around and constantly defend our ethnicity?"
To answer the question of why her race never came up, she explained:
"I grew up in a very diverse and eclectic neighborhood where race and ethnicity was not much of a conversation. We all just connected based on someone’s vibe."
As for why the topic of her race is now being discussed, she wrote:
"However, now that it has been made a conversation, I have never been one to shy away from anything. I am sure that they are a number of people out there who feel the way I do. We are proud of who we are"
When a Twitter user shared his ordeal for coming from various races, she tweeted:
"Unfortunately, it’s the day in age we live in. We’ve gone backwards & not forward. I hope and pray it will change. Just be happy with who you are. That’s all that really matters ❤️"
Lozada defended her response by claiming that she was sex-deprived at the time, as narrated on Hot New Hip-hop.
