The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Critics Slam Show For Rey Rosales’ Death, Lack Of Diversity

The Young and the Restless spoilers say that fans still can’t get over the fact that Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) is gone and that the show pretty much did him dirty by making him die in a car crash. To make matters worse, Rey was the last member of the Rosales family on the show, which has a lot of fans pointing out the lack of diversity on Y&R once more. Could this be one of the worst mistakes made by the soap’s writers? Here’s what you need to know.

The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Critics Slam Show For Rey Rosales’ Death, Lack Of Diversity

Of course, it didn’t take very long for both fans and critics to weigh in on the matter. Many of them took to social media to write, “Shame on Anthony Morina & Josh Griffith. What a bull way to write a character out to usher in three white characters. Absolutely trash. Jordi Vilasuso deserves MORE. Shame on them both,” along with, “Its 2022. It’s ridiculous. What’s next, Sharon using a rotary phone to call Rey to see where he is or Chelsea jumping out of the coffee shop to use a payphone to see what’s taking Rey so long? And the fact that there’s such little diversity has really brought the clock back at least 30 years on this show. Do better.”

Another critic wrote, “There were so many ways they could have written him out. It’s sounding like he was the driver at fault. I felt because we didn’t see him that this was filmed after he left and instead of having an affair with Chelsea they filmed her waiting for him so they could go take Connor to Chicago. Why couldn’t they have had him protecting and serving and killed in the line of duty? Why couldn’t they have had a bomb or gunman in Chicago and Rey died protecting Connor and Chelsea? The writers of the show really did the entire Rosales family wrong.”
