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."

It's totally disrespectful. Other than both of them being stunningly beautiful, they don't look alike.

Latinas all look alike? In that they are all beautiful - sure. ♡ 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.

Yeah and I think that if you're going to have celebrity on a panel, it's just standard to learn their name and get it right... @InPlainSight

Oooof that's awk. I see the resemblance I guess but they were on a special panel! She would have been introduced. That's not just sloppy that's totally not paying attention
