Who knew that we would be defending Pitbull? But yeah, that is what happening after the Twitter ignoranti could not believe that Pitbull was hosting last night’s AMAs. How could a (gasp!) MEXICAN be on TV? Yup, people that is what happened last night.

Kinda funny that it’s the AMERICAN music awards and Pitbull is not even American.

You can read more of the dumbness here, although this is our favorite one of the bunch:
AMERICAN music awards not SPANISH music awards.. pitbull take a seat
— Matt O’Dowd (@mattodowd9) November 25, 2013
And yeah, Pitbull (horrors!) speaks Spanish too!
this is why pitbull shouldnt host any awards show he speaks spanish half of the time

By the way, gotta give it up to this profile, who kept tweeting this to anyone who shared the Pitbull hate:
@mattodowd9 he was born in Miami to Cuban immigrant parents, technically he is American

We like the defense, but just a reminder: Pitbull isn’t “technically American.” He was was born in the U.S., so he IS American.
Don’t worry, Mr. 305 (REAL NAME: Armando Christian Pérez, born in Miami in 1981). We got your back on this one. In the end, we don’t like your music, but still… you hosted the AMAs and people who question your “Americaness” are just pendejos.
