That's really how it was!  White people just didn't know, for real.

I mean, have you watched Friends lately?

I agree it's racist, but it's the ignorant kind, not one that comes from an intentional place of malice.

The way Ellen mocks her accent... classy. Really classy, Ellen.

Wait, am I just being stupid? Or is imitating an accent not really racist? :derpga:
 

Like I just find that more rude than anything

Mocking someone's accent when they are trying to speak a second language, real classy.

That is Sofia's brand, her accent and her sexuality, so Ellen was purposefully promoting it as it's all Sofia talks about on talk shows. Ellen might be the devil but Sofia is clearly in on it.

Those “jokes” were always uncomfortable to watch, specially Sofia’s reaction to them. :awkney:

I don't like Ellen either, but where were all these evidences a few months ago? Why do people start noticing such things when a person messed up? lmao

I agree. That was her whole persona on Modern Family. And she made a lot of $$ off it.

This. I don't think this can be considered racist...

Just a very rude try at mocking the accent of someone who made her comedic career in the US by mocking her own accent.

You guys know, they run their interviews with each other and their PR teams before recording it, right? And you know it is taped and edited, not actually live, so it is agreed between both parts of the people involved in the show?

It doesn't make the jokes ok, or even funny for that matter, but saying Sofia was damaged by this or that it is racist is a big reach.

I think in the context of a white person doing it toward a POC, it's symbolic of some deeper (maybe subconscious, not always personal but more systemic) disrespect.

 

It's weird to think that jokes like this were definitely normalized back in the 2000s to like the earlier 2010s compared to now.
