‘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.

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. ????

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