I’d say her swim was a little culturally insensitive. There are so many who attempted that trek, not for fame but for freedom - and a good portion lost their lives.

My uncle swam from Cuba in the mid sixties. He was pick up by a boat about 8 miles from the keys. I’m sure he was not the only one and that more than a few have died trying but, an amazing accomplishment for anyone.
