‘Orange Is The New Black’ Made One Big Mistake And Latinos On Twitter Are Not Going To Let It Slide

Everyone’s favorite locked-up Latina pair are scheming again on the new season of “Orange Is The New Black.” As improvisation is pretty much the way of life in lock up, these Latinas found a way to stay glam behind bars using whatever household items were available to them. However, either written into the script, or a brain fart by one of our favorite actresses (hey, it happens) somebody messed up the name of one of our most beloved ingredients, and Twitter responded accordingly.


This season finds Flaca (Jackie Cruz) and Maritza (Diane Guerrero) in the middle of a prison shutdown, brought on by a riot and hostage situation. See, I told you there were spoilers, but no, you didn’t listen. In any event, the pair is trying their best to take advantage of the situation. With the convicts taking over the prison, cell phones have been reclaimed and redistributed.

Flaca and Maritza, trying to get a following outside of the prison, get their hands on one of the phones. Using the phone’s camera, they try to do a DIY makeup tutorial, jail style. Maritza knows that in jail, you have to improvise. Using household items, she shows that just because you’re locked-up, doesn’t mean you have to look jacked-up.

Announcer voice: “Doing a short stint? How about 25 to life? No worries, you too can contour and highlight like a free-person!”

The tutorial starts off great.

With actual good advice like this, you would almost certainly tune in to watch their show.

And here Maritza is finally ready to reveal her secrets.

Oh wow, just by looking at what’s on her makeshift prison vanity, you can make out some items that might look familiar from mami’s cabinets.

But here is where the tutorial gets controversial…

“Cinnamon, cumin and Sazón Goya.” Some astute viewers realized that the bottle Guerrero / Maritza is pointing to is in fact not Sazón, which everyone knows comes in a box of single-sized packets, as opposed to Adobo, which comes in a cylindrical plastic bottle.

For further clarification we present to you Exhibit A:

Maritza obviously pointed to the Adobo when she clearly says “Sazón.” Which, to be honest, might just be a better seasoning to use on the face, it would definitely give you that rosy cheekbone.

Latinos collectively felt like this [in Spanish] after this mistake.

I told you there were spoilers…

Who knows what went wrong. It could’ve been written that way for Maritza, or an innocent mistake by Diane Guerrero.

Or maybe neither of them really pay attention to seasonings because they like pizza.

Whatever the case may be, Twitter had a field day with it.

Twitter user @chrissieortiz called out the show itself directly with a big ol’ “WTF #OITNB?”

Some blamed Guerrero directly.

Twitterer @RebeccaAvilas said, “I was ashamed for a good minute.” That’s some abuela level shade.

Others blamed Maritza, though.

If you watched the previous seasons, you know that Maritza was a scam artist by trade. There’s no time to cook when you’re stealing cars in stilettos.

This Twitter user came with the receipts.

“How the hell do you get the Latina to screw that up?!” Wrote the clearly annoyed Twitter user @Project_Vectrix.

This Twitter user needed a warning.

At least @nessa_monsta is asking the hard questions. “Why did she say Sazón Goya when pointing at Adobo Goya?”

On second thought, Sazón or Adobo, if it makes my face smell like mami’s perníl, I’m down.

Honestly, anything you put on my face that reminds me of abuela’s home cooking, I’m down for. Forget the makeup, just make me a plate.

Seasoning mistakes aside, there’s no one more resourceful than Latinas.

My abuela could make seven different meals with eggs, white rice and Lipton soup. DIY for real.

As much as “Flaritza” has gotten social media guff about their seasoning faux-pas, let’s not forget, in real life, these two are Queens. ????

Flaritza forever ❤️

Looks like they made the smart choice here and skipped on the Goya-based makeup. ? ?  ?

Diane Guerrero Is Here With A Safe Voting PSA That Will Make Voting So Much Hotter

Diane Guerrero Is Here With A Safe Voting PSA That Will Make Voting So Much Hotter

Offsides Productions / YouTube

Covid-19 is changing how millions of Americans are voting this election. Nearly 100 million Americans have already early voted compared to the 138 million total votes in the 2016 election. With record turnout expected Diane Guerrero is here to give you all the tips to go out and vote safely in the time of Covid.

It’s Election Day and that means we should all be exercising our right to make our voice heard.

Diane Guerrero is here in a video by Offsides Productions to tell you all about safe voting. Don’t worry. She is completely prepared to walk first timers through their first vote. The PSA is one long innuendo giving voters all kinds of voting info and loving.

“Is this your first time? Do you feel nervous?” Guerrero tells the camera. “It’s normal to have lots of emotions about this big decision but I’m here to tell you, it’s gonna feel so good. So you should definitely do it.”

The actress is really excited for you to go out there and vote for democracy. However, she wants to make sure you are doing so super safe. That’s why, during the PSA, she tells you to wear all the protection you need to vote during a pandemic.

Images of hand sanitizer flying across the air and splattering on face shields really drive home that message. It is a wild time to be going out in public but there are safe ways to go out and vote for democracy.

The PSA is catching everyone’s attention.

The need to get out and vote is important. Both parties are pushing for as many people to vote as possible. So far, nearly 100 million people have early voted in this election. In 2016, 138 million people voted in total so this election is on track to break records. Some experts think that U.S. voter turnout will be the highest it has been since 1908.

Texas, for example, broke their voting record with early votes topping 9 million votes. Texas, which has been a Republican stronghold, is quickly becoming a battleground state. Beto O’Rourke’s race against Sen. Ted Cruz highlighted the possibility of flipping Texas blue.

Guerrero’s streamy message to all American voters is clear.

Get out there and vote, even if it is your first time. Voting is a right that was hard won by every demographic. People before us have protested, been attacked, and even killed to pave the way for you to be able to vote. Today is the day to make sure that those sacrifices were not made in vain.

Democracy relies on everyone using their voice to choose the country’s path. It is a way to see the future that you want to see. Use your voice and use your vote. Fill that box and help shape this country into the place you want it to be.

Ivanka Trump Violates Ethical Standards By Posting Tacky Photo ‘Supporting’ Goya

Ivanka Trump Violates Ethical Standards By Posting Tacky Photo ‘Supporting’ Goya

@ivankatrump / Twitter

Goya CEO Robert Unanue caused a big stir when he celebrated President Donald Trump. Ivanka, never one to be forgotten, took the time to post her own photo celebrating the Latino food brand after calls for a boycott.

Ivanka Trump tweeted a photo celebrating Goya and it allegedly violates ethical standards.

There has been a concerted effort from Conservatives and Republicans to uplift a Latino food brand for all the wrong reasons. After Goya CEO Robert Unanue praised President Trump, Latinos began a boycott against the brand. The protests aren’t because Unanue praised President Trump. The issue is that Unanue praised an administration that locked Latino migrant children in cages, called Mexican immigrants criminals and rapists, and has dehumanized the Latino community at any chance.

Those promoting Goya are trying to further dehumanize the Latino community by frivolously supporting a brand that had never been in their pantries.

Ethics organizations are calling for Ivanka to be held accountable for willfully flouting ethical standards.

“With an apparent endorsement of Goya products in her official capacity, It looks like Ivanka Trump violated the government’s misuse of public regulation, the same one Kellyanne Conway violated by endorsing Ivanka’s products,” reads a statement by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. “There’s been a running theme in the Trump administration of senior officials showing a complete disregard for any and all ethics regulations. This just continues it.”

The Trump family is taking cues here and even President Trump is pushing the product against ethical standards.

According to the Department of Justice: “An employee may not use his public office for his own private gain or for that of persons or organizations with which he is associated personally. An employee’s position or title should not be used to coerce; to endorse any product, service or enterprise; or to give the appearance of governmental sanction.”

Outrage is building and people are demanding that Ivanka be held accountable.

Latinos have banded together sharing recipes and highlighting alternative companies to cut Goya out of their pantries. Even abuleas has started to share their secret recipes to let Goya know that they are totally against the statement made by the CEO.
