Lazy Sofia Vergara Golden Globes Joke Incites Twitter’s Ire

Sofia Vergara was on hand during last night’s 2017 Golden Globe Awards to deliver one of the most cringe-worthy jokes of the evening — right before introducing Sylvester Stallone’s three daughters as the awards show’s annual Miss Golden Globes.

Vergara’s accent became the butt of the (unfunny) joke when she began, “The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has an anal tradition…I didn’t mean anal. They have an anus tradition. They have a tradition that they do every year…”

The joke was largely ill-received by viewers, who called attention the hyper-sexualized way Latinos are often written about in the media. Further, the perpetual insistence that Vergara’s accent is something deserving of ridicule is tired at best and offensive at worst.

In a world where the United States ultimately decided to elect a man who referred to Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and criminals during his presidential campaign, a lazy joke that reduces an accomplished, talented Latina actress to a stereotype isn’t just in poor taste — it’s genuinely harmful.

Check out some of the Twitter reactions to Sofia Vergara’s 2017 Golden Globes joke below, and watch the moment in full in the video above.
