Whether or not Todd Chavez is Latino has been hotly debated on the internet over the past five seasons, yet his ethnic and cultural identity has remained a mystery. Well, it turns out creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg didn't think about Chavez as being Latino. “I’m embarrassed to admit that it hadn’t occurred to me. I didn’t even realize that my friend in middle school was Latino.” he tells Vulture. "I want to be very honest, we have not talked about Todd’s race or cultural heritage a lot," he says. Bob-Waksberg doesn't want to take credit for creating a Latino character, especially when he's played by white actor Aaron Paul. “I didn’t want to feel like we were telling a Latino story that we were ill-equipped to tell, especially because we got some of that criticism with (Vietnamese-American) Diane, I think deservedly so, for being voiced by Alison Brie," he says.
