Celebrity apologies are an art form. Put it this way: if you're a celeb and you've messed up, there's a certain way to say sorry to fans. You've got to admit you were wrong, while still retaining your respectful reputation. After all, you don't want to commit career suicide, do you?
Eva Longoria is the latest star to publicly apologize following her comments to MSNBC about who is responsible for Joe Biden's US election win. The actress said in an interview: “The women of color showed up in a big way. Of course, you saw in Georgia what Black women have done, but Latina women were the real heroines here. Beating men in turnout in every state and voting for Biden/Harris at an average rate close to three to one.”
Online backlash soon followed, accusing the actress of "anti-Blackness" and “the erasure of Black Latinx women,” particularly since anti-Blackness is a prevalent issue in the Latinx community and since Black women contributed an enormous amount to the Democratic Party this year.
