Broward County decided to start off Hispanic Heritage month with a happy-go-lucky social media post.

They decided to kick off the celebrations by posting a GIF of a dancing hardshell taco holding maracas.

The captions said, “National Hispanic Heritage Month starts today! It beings on the 15th of September every year, to celebrate the independence of Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. What are you doing to celebrate?”

But just a few hours after the post was created, it was taken down. People responded very negatively to the post and deemed it insensitive to the Latin community.

“There are so many other things that represent us as Latinos than a taco with sour cream on top. It’s just not who we are,” Pérez-Verdía said.

So what do you think? Insensitive or not?
