Eva Longoria, America Ferrera call out racism against Latina actresses at Golden Globes

Comments 0

Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais got political while introducing presenters Eva Longoria and America Ferrera, joking that “future president Donald Trump” wants to deport them. Ferrera was born in Los Angeles and Longoria was born in Corpus Christi.

But the Latina actresses had the last laugh, dropping the buzziest diss toward racism in Hollywood with their brief exchange before presenting the award for Best Actor in a Drama Series.

“Yes, hi, I’m Eva Longoria, not Eva Mendes,” Longoria said.

“Hi, I’m America Ferrera, not Gina Rodriguez,” Ferrera said, referencing tweets from the Golden Globes Twitter account that identified her as Rodriguez during the nominations announcement.

Longoria continued, saying “And neither one of us are Rosario Dawson,” to which Ferrera replied “Nope.”

“Well said, Salma,” Ferrera said, referencing Mexican actress Salma Hayek.

“Thank you Charo,” Longoria finished, name-dropping the singer and actress made famous on 1970s TV shows like “The Love Boat” and “The Carol Burnett Show.”

Viewers quickly took to Twitter to suggest the pair co-host the Golden Globes next year.
