A picture of a 14-year old girl flashing a handful of dollar bills? No big deal. A picture of Hugo Chavez's 14-year old daughter flashing a handful of greenbacks? Absolute outrage.
Rosinés Chávez, the daughter of Venezuela's president, posted a picture of herself on Twitter holding a wad of "Yankee Empire", cash, and leading to a bit of a media frenzy across Venezuelan media and on social networks.
This is not the first time that Chavez's daughter has caused controversy through her Twitter page. She has previously been criticized for posting pictures of her moneyed lifestyle on the social network.
Currently on her Twitter page she shows off a picture hugging Justin Bieber and doesn't hide she's a big fan. Her Twitter bio reads "I (heart) Justin Bieber". We wonder how Mr. Chavez feels about her daughter crushing on The Biebs? After all, isn't the Canadian megastar, who is worth over $100 million dollars, a product of the same voracious and self-aggrandizing capitalism which Chavez rails against?
Other than causing indignation, Rosinés often also tweets in support of her father and his politics. "#YouDontHaveToBeSmart to know that CHAVEZ my daddy will Again Win the Elections" she recently wrote in Spanish.
The 14-year-old defended her scandalous tweets by writing "the fact that I am the Daughter of the President doesn't take away my right to joke on twitter, Remember I am young and I like Humor :D". But is she really joking?
Rosinés recently re twitted a follower's comments which read in Spanish, "I would love to be chavista like @RosinesCandanga I support the revolution, but I travel in a private jet and I am Justin Bieber's bff!!"
