Modern Family Angers Peru
In a recent episode of the ABC hit show “Modern Family,” there was a comment made about Sofia Vergara’s character that has angered Peruvians.
In the show, her character said, “Ah, here we go. Because, in Colombia, we trip over goats and we kill people in the street. Do you know how offensive that is? Like we’re Peruvians!”
Milagros Lizarraga, the founder of Peru USA Southern Ca, said, “It’s incredible that in a country where everything is politically correct, ABC would have a line of this sort.”
Someone asked Vergara on Twitter and she brushed it off by saying “Get a life” in spanish.
I guess we’ll see if Modern Family addresses this ever again.
