Saturday Night Live may have taken steps this past year towards expanding its diversity, but some believe the late night variety show hasn’t gone far enough.
Latina women have started calling for SNL to add some Latina writers and actors, and we think that’s a great idea!
The backlash came after a sketch that involved Cecily Strong (who is not Latina) playing a woman named Marisol who was essentially a mail…well, email-ordered girlfriend.
Since then, many have used the hashtag #StillNoLatinas to voice their concerns!
We hope SNL handles this criticism the same way they listened the campaign to finally add a black female actress to the show, and that they add a new Latina writer or actress, or ideally both![Image via NBC.]
