- After her statements defending Cringe Extraordinare Lin-Manuel Miranda and the obvious lack of Afro-Latino actors in the recently released film, In The Heights, the actress responded to the backlash of her comments, tweeting "I'm incredibly disappointed with myself. While making a statement in defense of Lin-Manuel Miranda on the Colbert Show last night, I was clearly dismissive of Black lives that matter in our Latin community...It is so easy to forget how celebration for some is lament for others." She followed it up with praising Miranda for his promise to be more inclusive to his casting in future projects.
