All Latinas Look The Same to The Global Globes?
On The Global Globes' Twitter account, they confused presenter America Ferrera as "Jane the Virgin" actress Gina Rodriguez. Not just once -- but TWICE.
See the panel right there? Yeah it's America Ferrera sitting at the end of it, not Gina Rodriguez. Welp, that's embarrassing. The tweet mentioned @HereIsGina...Gina Rodriguez' handle.

Just in case you wanted a closer look:

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association told Us Weekly in a statement, "What occurred this morning was an unfortunate error. Our sincerest apologies to both America and Gina."

Check out my collection for Latino News :) :)

FYI, Rodriguez got "discovered" as Ferrera's 'stand-in' for Ugly Betty. She was often referred to as Ferrera's 'evil twin' which is a Hollywood joke and reference to the movie, All About Eve. I don't see it as 'all Latinas look the same' πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„πŸ˜πŸ˜‰

Latinas all look alike? In that they are all beautiful - sure. β™‘ But it's totally disrespectful and highly unprofessional to release a statement without fact checking. I immediately recognized America as the lady at the podium when I saw this controversy aired yesterday. Just another example of how in this day and age of media overload news and /or entertainment organizations need to double check their information before releasing statements to the public.

lol, while I was reading this, I was like, well they do kind of look alike...read the comments, felt like a douche, went back to look at the pictures, and still think they look alike...now now I don't think all Latinas look alike, just these two...still doesn't excuse the mistake though.

so many powerful informative tools these days, and yet we still make "conventional mistakes" for the sake of argument
