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.

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!”
Ferrera has a history of savage clap backs. Who can forget when she called out the Golden Globes for mistaking her for Gina Rodriguez?Credit: Entertainment Tonight / YouTube
She also flawlessly explained why Donald Trump has zero percent of the black vote on “Real Time with Bill Maher.”Credit: Real Time with Bill Maher
But, don’t worry. In the same interview she threw shade at ALL politicians and how they treat the minority vote “outreach.”Credit: Real Time with Bill Maher / YouTube
“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.Credit: America Ferrera / YouTube
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.Credit: Revelist / YouTube
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.Credit: CNN / YouTube
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
