Yalitza Aparicio Says She’s Waiting For A Role That Won’t Pigeonhole ‘Because of Appearance”

Since the start of her acting career, Oaxacan actress Yalitza Aparicio has been sure to see that her work helps uphold her community. While many actors on the rise tend to focus on racking up more acting roles and fame, Aparicio has been much more vocal about her desire to focus on her advocacy and work for organizations like Cine Too. What’s more, ensuring that she secures proper representation for Indigenous people like herself.

While Aparicio first made headlines and won our hearts with her performance in the 2018 film Roma the Indigenous actress has yet to appear in another role on screen.

It turns out, it isn’t for a lack of offers.

Speaking with Indie Wire about her career, Aparicio has said that she is taking her time to find a role that properly represents her and her community.

“My objective in my career is to give visibility to all of us who have been kept in the dark for so long,” Aparicio claimed in a recent interview with IndieWire. “The acting projects I’m working on are moving slowly because I’m putting all my efforts in not being pigeonholed because of my appearance.”

Aparicio, who is 26-years-old, was born in Tlaxiaco, Oaxaca, rocketed to fame when she took on the role of Cleo in Alfonso Cuarón’s 2018 movie Roma. The film, which was nominated for various Academy Awards followed Aparicio as Cleo a housekeeper who works in a wealthy household in Mexico City’s Colonia Roma. Aparicio’s role brought her praise not just for her skills but for her role in solidifying a much-needed portrayal of Mexico’s Indigenous community.

Still, despite the praise and fame, the role brought her, Aparicio is adamant that her next role will be something greater.

“I come from a community where there’s no movie theater, and as a consequence, the population — especially the children that grow up in those communities — has less of an interest in the cinematic arts. [Cine Too] has the possibility to reach these children and provide an opportunity to instill in them the passion for cinema and teach them about this art form,” she explained in her interview. “I’m conscious that every step I take may open doors for someone else and at the same time it’s an opportunity for society to realize we are part of it and that we are here,”

In her interview, Aparicio points out that while she is very aware that Indigenous filmmakers and allies “have a complicated job because these things can’t be changed overnight,” she is still pushing for real change.

“Wherever I go, I’ll always be proudly representing our Indigenous communities,” she asserted. “We can show people that the only limits are within us.”

Kellyanne Conway Now Facing Additional Investigation After Nude Photos Of Her Underaged Daughter Were Posted From Her Twitter Account

Things That Matter

Kellyanne Conway Now Facing Additional Investigation After Nude Photos Of Her Underaged Daughter Were Posted From Her Twitter Account

Updated January 27, 2021.

Last summer Claudia Conway, Kellyanne Conway’s daughter, gained national attention when she began to express her anti-Trump views on the social platform TikTok. At the start, it became clear that despite her parents’ high profile political positions Claudia was going to speak her mind and be honest about her thoughts on the now-former- American president. In her videos, Claudia criticized Trump for his policies and divisive nature, slammed her mother for her part in supporting him and spoke openly about the toxic nature of her own home.

Now, Claudia is coming to the surface again, this time to lambast her mother for her apparent abuse.

Last week, it was revealed was that Kellyanne Conway was under a police investigation after Claudia claimed she was being abused by the former campaign manager to Donald Trump.

According to OK!, a member of the Alpine Police Department claimed that officers responded to the Conway’s household lat Wednesday, January 20, in response to a “juvenile matter.” The issue is apparently now under investigation after a third party (not Claudia) reported an incident.

In a video posted to TikTok last week, Claudia could be seen telling officers that she felt unsafe. Last week, Claudia quickly went viral after posting videos of a woman she claimed to be her mother verbally and physically abusing her.

At one point, the person off-camera purported to be Kellyanne Conway screams calls Claudia an “ungrateful b**tch” and later says “You’re lucky your mom’s pro-life.”

The ex-counselor to the disgraced former president is now being accused of posting a topless picture of Claudia on Twitter.

According to captures posted by users on social media, the topless photos were shared from Conway’s account, @KellyannePolls on Twitter’s Fleet. The image was eventually taken down but not before Twitter users took screenshots. According to Variety, “On TikTok, Claudia Conway on Monday posted videos confirming that the picture was authentic; those have since been deleted from her TikTok account but Twitter users reposted copies of the videos. In the videos, a visibly upset Claudia Conway speculated that her mother may have accidentally posted the image.”

“I’m assuming my mom took a picture of it to use against me one day and then somebody hacked her or something,” Conway wrote about the post. “I’m literally at a loss for words. If you see it, report it.”

In a post to TikTok, Claudia Conway claimed that “nobody would ever have any photo like that, ever. So, Kellyanne, you’re going to fucking jail.”

In several updates posted to TikTok videos on Tuesday morning, Claudia Conway asked users to “stop calling authorities” and announced that she and her mother are now “taking a break from social media.”

“I know that my mom would never, ever post anything to hurt me like that intentionally, and I do believe she was hacked,” Claudia Conway said in one of the videos posted to TikTok.

Claudia’s TikTok profile led her parents to attempt to ban her from social media.

Claudia’s hiatus from social media did not last long. Claudia is famous for trolling her parents on social media. Her level of trolling her parents, Kellyanne and George, outraged Kellyanne to the point of forcibly taking Claudia’s phone in a video.

In July, the daughter of Donald Trump’s right-hand man and personal “alternative fact-checker” (Kellyanne Conway) made headlines when journalists caught wind of her anti-Trump and pro-BLM TikTok videos. Now, Kellyanne’s daughter, Claudia, is speaking up again this time about her parents.

Claudia’s decision to speak out once again comes at the hands of her father’s latest tweet.

Only July 3, Conway’s father George spoke out in response to recent interviews with his daughter writing: “To journalists: @kellyannepolls and I do not consent to any communications between you and any of our minor children, including our daughter Claudia. So desist. Thank you.”

In a series of tweets that have now been deleted Claudia responded to her father “You’re just mad that I’m finally getting my voice heard. Sorry your marriage failed” according to Complex.

Claudia reportedly posted a series of tweets in response to accusations that she was angry. “Bahah I’m not angry, I’m chillin, I’m just over both of my parents trying to silence me” Claudia wrote in one of the now-deleted tweets and continuing by saying “my parents, particularly my mother, are trying to silence me by getting me to delete my social media. haha.”

At the time Claudia opened up about her decision to speak against Trump to Insider, explaining that despite the family’s polarizing political dynamics, she respects her parents. “They are the most generous, most well-educated people I have ever met,” Claudia said. “I look up to them and want nothing but success and good fortune for them. They are my parents and that trumps all — no pun intended.”

Clearly, when it comes to Kellyanne Conway, it turns out her apples are falling far from the tree.

Over the summervideos and posts shared from Claudia’s TikTok and Instagram posts revealed at least one out of four of Conway’s children isn’t a fan of her mother’s political party.

New York Times reporter Taylor Lorenz thrust Claudia into the spotlight earlier this week when she shared a string of videos taken and posed by the teenager which feature her ribbing Trump supporters for their politics. In several posts, Claudia encouraged TikTok followers, which the Times has said clocks in at 16,000, to leave one-star reviews of the president’s businesses. She has also used her pages to make fun of the difficulty of having political opinions different from that of her politically polarized parents.

“Believe it or not you can have your own opinions simply by educating yourself,” Claudia said in one video.

In another TikTok post, Claudia wrote “why do people hate on trump supporters… like why can’t we just respect everyone’s opinions? SIKE nah block me pls and then educate yourself.”

Note: Ivanka Trump DOES follow Claudia on Instagram which means this teen has some cajones.

Claudia has also expressed support for Black Lives Matter protests.

In the bio section of her TikTok account, Claudia writes, “it’s a great day to arrest brett hankison, john mattingly, and myles cosgrove.” The post is a reference to the death of Breonna Taylor who was shot and killed by Louisville, Kentucky police in her own home. According to The Washington Post, Taylor’s family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the officers. As of today, only Brett Hankison has been fired from the Louisville Metro Police.

Claudia isn’t the first Conway with liberals to cause some trouble for Kellyanne.

Conway’s husband George Conway, whom she married in April 2001, has been vocal about his negative opinions of Donald Trump. Throughout Trump’s presidency, Conway has questioned the president’s mental health, judgment, and intelligence. He has also drawn criticism from the president directly.

In 2019, Trump tweeted about Conway’s marriage to George Conway writing “George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!” 

In a comment to Claudia’s recent post about having different opinions than your parents, one follower wrote “Hello sis welcome to the left,” to which Claudia replied. “Hehe I’ve been here girly.”
