Former "Desperate Housewife," Eva Longoria is being dragged on social media for seemingly downplaying Black Women's role in winning the 2020 Presidential Election for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. In an interview with MSNBC Eva stated; “women of color showed up in big ways. Of course, you saw in Georgia what Black women have done but Latina women were the real heroines here, beating men in turnout in every state and voting for Biden-Harris at an average rate of 3:1.”

Eva, facing the political firestorm, issued an apology via a few tweets of her own:

We love Eva Longoria, but we do feel like she unwittingly diminished the contributions of Black Women with her words. Defeating Donald Trump was a collaborative effort; taking men and women of seemingly every ethnic group, gender, and sexual orientation to accomplish. Yes Latinas played a role, but even as Biden mentioned in his victory speech on Saturday, it was the Black community that saved the day!

You misspoke Eva, we accept your apology, however.
