Latino Celebs Plead: Don't Vote for Trump, Cruz or Rubio
Aubrey Plaza, Carlos Santana, America Ferrera and others spoke out against "the GOP's anti-immigrant, anti-Latino agenda"

“An army of Latino celebrities have signed a letter imploring their fellow Latino voters not to support Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush or any other major Republican candidate.

George Lopez, Aubrey Plaza, Zoe Saldana, Carlos Santana, America Ferrera, Benjamin Bratt and Ivonne Coll were among the 22 signatories of the letter, which was drafted and posted online by the watchdog group People for the American Way.

“From accusing Mexicans of being rapists to kicking Jorge Ramos out of his press conference, Trump has spent the entirety of his presidential bid stoking unfounded anti-immigrant fears and deeply offending our communities,” the missive reads.

“We must not, though, let Trump’s xenophobia overshadow the extreme policies being pushed by every single one of the GOP’s leading presidential candidates. Latinos should understand that Donald Trump embodies the true face of the entire Republican Party. Sadly, he speaks for the GOP’s anti-immigrant, anti-Latino agenda.”

The letter goes on to indict the entire field of candidates, accusing them of using “dangerous, divisive rhetoric and proposed harmful policies in their efforts to win over Trump’s radical supporters.”

  • Uhura:To boldly go where NO ONE has gone before.

Can I admit something? I love Zoe Saldana. 

I loved her when she did greenface in Guardians of the Galaxy.

 I loved her when she did blueface in Avatar. 

I especially loved her when she did exasperated balletface for Center Stage, the best dance movie of all time. 

Despite all of that love (literally decades of love), I cannot support Zoe Saldana donning blackface to portray Nina Simone in the upcoming biopic Nina

Really, now? This is egregious. Yes, Zoe Saldana is an Afro-Latina woman, but that doesn’t excuse the darkened makeup, the wig, and the prosthetic nose it requires to make Zoe look like Nina. That’s blackface

Actresses who look like Nina Simone really do exist, Hollywood. Look harder.
