The self-appointed crown princess of Cuba, Mariela Castro, took to social media recently and tried to mock Cuban American musical superstar Gloria Estefan. Mariela, who is the daughter of Cuba’s ruthless dictator Raul Castro, took issue with Estefan’s proclamation in 2016 that she would never perform in Cuba until the island was free of the Castro dictatorship.
In a feeble attempt to mock Gloria Estefan, and with no sense of irony whatsoever, Mariela Castro responded to a post referring to Estefan’s refusal to perform in Castro’s Cuba (via CiberCuba, my translation):
“And who wants to listen to her? There’s nothing charming about Gloria Estefan.”
Mariela’s lack of self awareness is astonishingly stunning. She claims no one in Cuba wants to listen to Gloria Estefan, but fails to mention her father’s dictatorship banned Gloria’s music on the island. How does she know Cubans don’t like Gloria’s music if they have been prohibited from listening to it?
The irony, however, does not end there. Mariela made her comments on social media, where few Cubans will ever see it since her father also bans free access to the internet.
Once again, Cuba’s crown princess and Duchess of Booger, Mariela Castro, shows us no one can expose her arrogance and insolence better than she can.
