Can someone please direct Naya Rivera to the nearest shower? The Glee actress appeared on The View this morning , and for some reason the the panelist started to discuss co-host Nicolle Wallace’s claims she showers over three times a day.

Naya decided to pipe up and claim only “Whites” hit the showers more than “ethnics” (yes she said ethnics!).

According to Naya:

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.

Um, what? Rosie O’Donnell zeroed in on a black woman in the audience who looked like she was about to pass out and quipped:

Look, there is an African-American woman right there in a yellow shirt that is about to have a heart attack.

Rosie then asked her if she took daily showers, to which the woman nodded she did. Of course she does.

Naya tried to backpedal by claiming a “study” that she felt backed up her claims. Dr. Rivera remarked:

A study says… a dermatologist says you are only supposed to shower once or twice every three days, so I’m right on the mark!

Huh? Then she tried the Hey, I have a White husband, so it’s ok attempt. (Face Palm)

Non-‘White People’ — especially Black folks — took to Twitter en masse to give it to Rivera:

Feeling the heat, Rivera tried lamely to joke it off online by saying:

Ah, I see. If a White person said that Blacks and Hispanics don’t shower enough, it would just be written off as a joke….RIGHT?

Sure it would. Let’s imagine it, shall we?

Random White Actor: “Not showering every day is a Black and Hispanic thing. We shower much more than they do. Really…it’s ok because my wife is Black, and she only showers twice a week. I’m like: ‘What’s wrong with you?'”

Yeah, I’m so sure his career would be just fine.
