Peru has a right to be offended about this. On another typical sorry excuse for entertainment on American Television. Sofia Vergara uttered an obnoxious line. It's in the video above, but just in case the video gets deleted, here's what she says.
Random fat american character (presumably married to indentured Latina): It worked out this time, but don't forget that stealing is against the law. Now maybe in Colombia...
Sofia "I'm from Colombia" Vergara: Ah here we go because in Colombia we (uninteligible...something about goats) and we kill people in the street. Do you know how offensive that is? Like we're Peruvians!
First of all, I lived in Peru for 10 years and I'm going to plainly say that on a daily basis I felt a lot fucking safer in Peru than I do in the US. For some reason there's this huge mythology that South America is dangerous (well...ironically Colombia is pretty dangerous), but it's pretty much just invented so that asshole American tourists pay ten times as much for a "safe" taxi as opposed to some regular street taxi that would give you a fair price.
Second of all...this comment isn't at all funny! Even if there hypothetically was a place where they killed people in the streets, would that be something to use as a punchline as a joke on a nationally syndicated program? That's bullshit!
What we have here is the case where some uneducated dipshit writer for this second rate piece of crap television show got lazy and thought s/he was writing something funny by insulting an entire nation. I wish he or she would step forward and take responsibility for this ignorant idiocy (but s/he won't because s/he is a worthless piece of human waste who probably only got the job because his/her daddy/mommy works at the studio...or OWNS the studio like every other cocaine addicted brat in Hollywood).
The thing is...basically nobody in the US knows ANYTHING about South America. Frankly, if shit's not happening in the US, then Americans aren't interested. That's why Americans are basically the laughing stock of the entire world for being a punch of pompous, self-centered assholes. If they ever develop the guts to go traveling somewhere, they're realize that this is a misconception they have to overcome with basically everyone they start a conversation with.
I mean...why would this writer piss off Peru? Why not say Venezuela? I mean, US/Venezuelan relations are already strained. Nobody's going to object if Venezuela gets pissed off! The US is FRIENDS with PERU! Who's this fucking ignorant dipshit writer? Why the hell does s/he think it's acceptable to STRAIN relations with a nation that is a FRIEND of the US? I mean...what the fuck? How unbelievably arrogant and selfish! If one tourist has to wait even one second longer than normal in immigrations because of this dipshit...s/he should do jail time as far as I'm concerned. What an asshole!
To make matters worse, the first blog that I did a search on about this topic seemed to think that Peru was overreacting. The author of this blog, who cowardly signed only as Sam (from TVFix), wrote:
"Seriously, Peru: it was a joke. Just laugh it off and get back to your goat-tripping and people-killing."
Sorry ASSHAT, it doesn't qualify as a JOKE because it wasn't fucking FUNNY. And...for the record...Peruvians DON'T "people-kill" or "goat-trip" (whatever the fuck that means).
Seriously, this is another one of those days where it's a fucking embarrassment to be American. I don't even really blame Sofia Vergara because she's just an idiot actress who reads the cards that are put in front of her (but she should have known better than to say something like this against Peru which is totally untrue and unprovoked). But this inbred Sam from TVFix fuckwad (I'm guessing that his mother was so fucking ugly that the only one she could get to take her was her own father...with her grandfather and the dog thrown in every now and then...but it was OK because Sam's mother was such a whore that she just LOOOOVED it [by the way Sam from TVFix, if you find this offensive...seriously, it's only a joke. Just laugh it off and get back to holding the video camera as your mom double teams your dad and grandfather]).
Man..in Peru they have a word for people like Sofia Vergara and the writers of Modern Family and Sam from TVFix. These people are maleducado. It means they are impolite, but it's a little stronger than that because the literal translation is "poorly educated." This implies that they should know better, but because their parents and their community did a bad job of instilling basic values...these people turned out to be assholes.
Look...if the NATION of Peru is OFFENDED by this comment then SOMEBODY should make a public apology. Hell, I'll do it right now:
"On behalf of Sofia Vergara and the imbecile writers of 'Modern Family' Streets of Lima hereby wishes to apologize for the ignorant, non-humorous comments made against Peru on that crappy television episode which is another example of a long tradition of horrible American Television programming."
That's the best I can do Peru. I just hope that you take heart and understand that not all Americans are total ignorant dipshit fuckwads like those surrounding this "Modern Family" affair. They embarrass the rest of us, and in the end, Peru ends up looking like the nation with the more mature/superior attitude.
God...I wish these people could just grow up and issue an apology instead of puffing out their chests like they're about to get into a bar fight...maleducados de mierda, obviamente son cualquier hijos del vecino no?...y no se preocupen, los imbeciles no pueden leer espanol, ni ningun otro idoma menos ingles, que broma de verdad...
