At last night’s Golden Globes, Sophia Vergara came out to introduce the Miss Golden Globes of the evening and decided to make a little joke about anal.
In her introduction she said, “The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has an anal tradition…I mean, they have an anus tradition.”

Okay, the jokes about her accent have been done, it’s not that great, but let’s all just move on to the next lame presenter’s joke. Oh wait, we can’t. We must get outraged.
Twitter then blew up with people incensed that Vergara is forced to always play into dumb/sexy Latina stereotypes even when she’s playing herself.
I know actors agree to present awards & are scripted, but plz STOP writing the same over sexualized/latinx accent jokes #GoldenGlobes

I wish we could live in a world where Sofia Vergara doesn't have to CONSTANTLY MOCK HERSELF IN ORDER TO EXIST

According to BroBible, Sophia wrote the joke herself, based on this Instagram post.
Should there be fewer Sophia Vergara has a crazy accent jokes? Yes. Mostly because they are tired. Should we go nuts over an anal joke? No. It’s the Golden Globes. It’s always full of dumb shit that no one remembers after three days. Burlesque was once nominated for Best Musical or Comedy as was The Tourist, so you should expect disappointment from this show.
