Eva Longoria got blistered online for saying Latinas “are the real heroines” who pushed President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris past the finish line on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020.

The 45-year-old actress, activist and restaurateur, best known for her award-winning role in the TV drama “Desperate Housewives,” acknowledged that Black women played an invaluable role in the successful Biden-Harris presidential ticket.

“Mostly people of color,” she said. “The Black and brown communities delivered for Biden.”

But it was later in the conversation that Longoria suggested Latinas were most important to Biden’s win.

“Of course you saw in Georgia what Black women have done, but Latina women we the real heroines here, beating men in turnout in every state and voting for Biden-Harris at an average rate close to 3 to 1,” she said.

Some Blacks were perturbed and disappointed with Longoria after the interview, which can be crystallized with this tweet out of many:
