Gina Rodriguez Responds To Backlash In Tears 😭
34 year-old actress, Gina Rodriguez, is in the hot seat and she can’t handle it one bit. After sharing her views on women in the movie industry, she is now responding to the backlash from the black community.Gina was in an interview with Net-A-Reporter where she said, “ I get so petrified in this space talking about equal pay especially when you look at the intersectional aspect of it, right? Where white women get paid more than black women, black women get paid more than Asian women, Asian women get paid more than Latina women, and it’s like a very scary space to step into.”
The “Jane The Virgin” actress almost immediately, received backlash and criticism, with them labeling her as anti-black.
However, two months later the actress decided to clear the air with a very emotional breakdown at the radio show, Sway In The Morning. She stated, “We didn’t have many Latino shows and the black community made me feel like I was seen, so to get anti-black is to say I’m anti-family.”
She continued to give a very teary eyed apology to the listeners, stating that the backlash took a toll on her, that she had no intention of putting two “underrepresented” groups against each other, but she is genuinely sorry for those who were hurt by her comments.
