When you think Latina stereotype, you probably think Modern Family’s lively, voluptuous Gloria. Sofia Vergara’s character is definitely a valid example, but there are many more you may not even realize exist. At Latina Magazine’s Hot List Party in LA last week, we spoke to some celebs who can speak for Latinas, and they’re ready to right some of Hollywood’s wrongs. Watch Adrienne Bailon, Christina Milian, Fifth Harmony, Hit the Floor’s Valerie Ortiz, former Love & Hip Hop stars Erica Mena and Somaya Reece, Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Aimee Carrero (Young & Hungry), and Cierra Ramirez (The Fosters) tell the media to cut the crap.
Check out these strong-willed women give us a little taste of their Latina flavor in explaining ways Latinas simply can’t be outdone, and the real deal on stereotypes about them that need to get out of our TV screens ASAP.
