“I don’t know why they give her the hardest lines, too – because we have to describe what’s in the CoverGirl make-up, and she has such a hard time pronouncing any of the ingredients,” Ellen says of her guest, Vergara. She then responds, “I think because you are much more famous than me… and older than me… so they give you priority and you read the script first and you’re the one that makes me say those words.”

Despite Vergara’s statement, some still feel that Ellen was in the wrong here. “You are strong and confident enough to not be a victim, however I think laughing and mocking other people’s accents without even speaking a second language is quite ignorant, and not necessarily hilarious for our Latino community,” one person writes.
