Actress Eva Longoria has been praised after issuing a public apology for calling Latina voters the “real heroines” of the 2020 election for turning out in support of Joe Biden. Some thought she was taking credit from black women.
“Women of color showed up in big ways,” the Desperate Housewives star said when asked about Biden’s winning demographics in a Sunday MSNBC interview. “Of course, you saw in Georgia what Black women have done,” she continued, referencing the typically conservative state’s unprecedented shift toward the Democratic Party.
“But the Latina women are the real heroines here, beating men in turnout in every state, and voting for Biden/Harris at an average rate close to three to one!” Longoria pointed out.
