MTV Australia Apologizes for Offensive Tweet Aimed at Eva Longoria and America Ferrara

That was supposed to be a joke?

During Sunday (Jan. 10, 2016) night’s 73rd annual Golden Globe awards, Eva Longoria and America Ferrara stole the show when they got real about what it’s like to be Latina in Hollywood. The badass moment came right after a lackluster joke from host Ricky Gervais about Donald Trump wanting to deport the actresses and unfortunately, MTV Australia tried to ride Gervais’ coattails.

As Longoria and Ferrara presented an award, MTV Australia sent out an extremely offensive tweet about needing subtitles to understand the Mexican-American actresses.

The tweet immediately received backlash, causing MTV Australia to delete the tweet and issue an apology.


Why don’t we just leave the humor to Longoria and Ferrara, agreed?
