That Time The Golden Globes Accidentally Mixed Up America Ferrera and Gina Rodriguez
Ferrera was one of four presenters announcing the nominees at next year’s Golden Globes, alongside Angela Bassett, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Dennis Quaid, while Rodriguez is a Best Actress nominee for her role on Jane the Virgin.
The Golden Globes’ Twitter account confused the two not once but twice, tweeting and then deleting the two photos misidentifying the gorgeous actresses:

In other words, while both Latina, they’re not the same person. It’s fine,
racism misidentifications happen all the time.
