Naya Rivera thinks showering every day is a ''white people thing''.

The 'Glee' star believes ''white people'' take a shower ''a lot more than ethnics'' after noticing her husband Ryan Dorsey - who she married in July last year - loves to clean his whole body on a regular basis, while she only does so once or twice every three days.

During a conversation about cleanliness on talk show 'The View' on Tuesday (14.01.15), she said: ''I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics. I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing.''

Some in the studio audience were left shocked by Naya's comments and co-host Rosie O'Donnell then said: ''There's an African-American woman in a yellow shirt who is about to have a heart attack.''

Naya then turned her body in the direction of the woman and clarified her comments.

She said: ''My mom is half-black, half-Puerto Rican. She showers every day, so I can say this. But I can say I'm now married to a white man and he showers a lot. A lot. Like two, three times a day. I'm like, 'What are you doing?'

''A dermatologist says you're only supposed to shower once or twice every three days so I'm right on the mark.''

''If you bird bath everything important gets cleaned, you don't need a dunking.''

Following the episode, some Twitter users hit out at the 28-year-old beauty's comments.

LovesModChic tweeted: ''I'm still not over Naya Rivera's renk batty self saying that ''ethnic'' people don't shower daily because SHE showers every 3 days, girl what? (sic)''

But some Twitter users just used the moment to make a dig at the stunner.

However, Naya brushed off the criticism by tweeting: ''When you get out of the shower today, get a sense of humor. Love ya! (sic)''
