MTV Australia asked for subtitles for the Golden Globes, Mashable obliged

MTV Australia deleted tweetMTV Australia wins the prize for social media outrage of the day – after tweeting to ask for subtitles as Latina actresses Eva Longoria and America Ferrera were saying as they presented at the Golden Globes today.

Mashable was quickly onto the outrage that was flying around the interwebz as people accused MTV of racism and many other things, before the TV network issued a statement saying it was meant to be a joke as Longoria and Ferrera were riffing about being mistaken for other Latina actresses.

Fortunately for anyone who was struggling to understand the duo speaking in English Mashable posted their skit, complete with subtitles.

Dr Mumbo does wonder whether the joke was in part prompted by Mamamia confusing Longoria with another Latina star, Sofia Vergara?
