It’s Time To Crown America Ferrera The Clapback Queen Of 2016

America Ferrera has been throwing some expert shade this year, and the Emmys red carpet was no different. During a red carpet interview at the Emmys, E!’s Giuliana Rancic congratulated America Ferrera for “Superstore,” for making it to the prime slot (8 p.m.) on NBC’s Thursday lineup. After Rancic asked Ferrera how it felt to be in that prime slot, Ferrera was *quick* to let Rancic know that the feeling was not new.

Giuliana Rancic’s mistake was assuming that this Latina actor has never led a primetime lineup.

Rancic: “NBC is so excited about it [“Superstore”]. It’s actually leading Thursday nights, which if you remember, “Friends” held that honor for a really long time. How does that feel?”

America Ferrera: “It feels great. Although, “Ugly Betty” was Thursday nights at 8 [p.m.] so I feel like I’m back home!”

Rancic: ?

Ferrera has a history of savage clap backs. Who can forget when she called out the Golden Globes for mistaking her for Gina Rodriguez?

I-Con-Ic!

She also flawlessly explained why Donald Trump has zero percent of the black vote on “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

Drag him!

But, don’t worry. In the same interview she threw shade at ALL politicians and how they treat the minority vote “outreach.”

“It’s hilarious that every election, every presidential election, two months before the election, everybody’s like, ‘How do we turn out the minority vote?'” Ferrera said. “You’re too little too late. Like, every year is an election year.”

She also crafted a clever response to Tina Fey’s laughable attempt of naming Latino entertainers.

In her clapback/parody video, Ferrera struggles to name any white entertainers, though Morgan Freeman did get a much deserved shout out.

Oh, there was also the time that Ferrera called out a white male interviewer for pigeonholing her into being split between a woman and Latino for president.

It really must be such a mystery for white men to know who female people of color would vote for this year. Remember, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were running for president as Republicans, which means all Latinos must have been lining up behind the only Latino candidates, right?

And, at the Democratic National Convention, Ferrera and Lena Dunham went at Donald Trump.

Ferrera and Dunham jokingly apologized to America for all the TV celebrities who stick their hands in politics — including TV celebrity Donald Trump. S A V A G E

America Ferrera Celebrates 20th Anniversary Of Working On ‘Gotta Kick It Up’ With Sweet IG Post

It has been 20 years since America Ferrera’s dream of becoming an actor back true. She took to Instagram to reflect on the moment that her dream started to come true and it is a sweet reminder that anyone can chase their dreams.

America Ferrera shared a sweet post reflecting on the 20th anniversary of working on “Gotta Kick It Up!”

“Gotta Kick It Up!” was one of the earliest examples of Latino representation so many of us remember. The movie follows a school dance team trying to be the very best they could possibly be. The team was down on their luck but a new teacher introduces them to a different kind of music to get them going again.

After being introduced to Latin beats, the dance team is renewed. It taps into a cultural moment for the Latinas on the team and the authenticity of the music makes their performances some of the best.

While the movie meant so much to Latino children seeing their culture represented for the first time, the work was a major moment for Ferrera. In the Instagram post, she gushes over the celebrities she saw on the lot she was working on. Of course, anyone would be excited to see Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt hanging out. Yet, what stands out the most is Ferrera’s own excitement to realize that she can make money doing what she loves most.

“I wish I could go back and tell this little baby America that the next 20 years of her life will be filled with unbelievable opportunity to express her talent and plenty of challenges that will allow her to grow into a person, actress, producer, director, activist that she is very proud and grateful to be. We did it baby girl. I’m proud of us,” Ferrera reflects.

America Ferrera’s “Superstore” Is Going To Get A Spanish-Language Adaptation In A Win For Inclusion

Fans of the hit NBC comedy Superstore may have been disappointed when it was announced that the series would be cancelled after its sixth season, but there’s good news! The series is going to get a Spanish-language version for international audiences and it will be part of a major expansion for the series. 

The show was well-known for tackling important social issues, particularly around immigration. And a Spanish-language adaptation, particularly one produced out of Mexico, will undoubtedly present an equally interesting take on immigration.

NBC comedy Superstore is getting a Spanish-language adaptation.

Although Superstore is coming to an end on NBC, and will no longer feature America Ferrera, fans of the hit series should celebrate that it’s getting a Spanish-language redo. The show, which focused on the lives of employees at a fictional big box store called Cloud 9 in Missouri, premiered in 2015 and ran for six seasons, with its sixth season set to end on March 25.

“Superstore is a bold workplace comedy with a beating heart, known for its courage to tackle important societal issues,” said Enrique Guillen, executive VP of commercial strategy and international development for Universal Studio Group. “We are grateful to partner with Dopamine to adapt Justin Spitzer’s acclaimed comedy and one of Universal Television’s biggest success stories. This pact to co-produce our valuable IP in a foreign language is the first of many such deals to come.”

The new adaptation is being made under the working title Supertitlan and has received an 48-episode order and will be adapted in Spanish for the Latin American and U.S. Hispanic markets. 

Superstore has remained one of the most popular shows at NBC in its prime. As Variety points out, the Justin Spitzer-created comedy drew in 37 million viewers during its Season 5 run from 2019 to 2020.

And it’s getting a major expansion.

 The Spanish-language adaptation already has a season one order of 48 episodes with each episode coming in at an hour long. For a series that originally consisted of 20 episodes of 30 minutes, that’s a major expansion for the show. For fans of the show, that’s a whole lot more Superstore to look forward to.
