one of the faces of the trend.
00:30
Now tiktok users have a wild theory and claim that Una Gutierrez
00:37
is actually a white woman named Brooklyn Chipman.

00:46
no brother, no,
00:48
no photos show that she allegedly has natural blonde hair and blue

eyes. Oh shit.
00:57
But dyes her hair black and uses dark brown color contacts.

01:35

01:36
we come in all different colors,
01:39
shapes and hair colors and I mean,
01:41
if she would have blonde hair,
01:42
blue eyes, I mean,
01:44
there's Latinas that have that too.
01:47
But the dad said that while Brooklyn's mom is white,
01:50
he may have something else in his bloodline.
01:53
He said if my daughter wants to use a little bit of
01:55
Mexican we have in our family,
01:57
she's allowed to do that.
01:59
Is he actually Latino or?
02:00
He's just kinda like,
02:01

02:02
