Hey Ms. Longoria, I am a Minoity Woman voting for Romney and I am NOT Stupid!Jules Hirst
The beautiful Eva Longoria is taking some heat for an offensive retweet
evalongoria “I have no idea why any woman/minority can vote for Romney. You have to be stupid to vote for such a racist/misogynistic twat.” @
As one of President Obama’s campaign co-chairs and a role model, we would expect a little more professionalism and sensitivity from her when deciding what she is going to retweet.
Maybe Ms. Longoria can use a refresher course on how to talk politics.
To be fair, she did later delete the tweet and apologized. *UPDATE: Thursday, Oct. 18, 12:10 p.m. EST — Longoria apologized for offending people with the retweet, via Twitter, writing: “I use Twitter as a platform for all Americans and their opinions. Sorry if people were offended by retweet. Obviously not my words or my personal view. I respect all Americans #FreedomOfSpeech.”
For me this is personal since I am a minority, a woman and I support Romney.
In my seminars when I talk about etiquette and the Internet, I always stress how important it is to be careful about what you put on the Internet because it will follow you forever.
There is no doubt that this election is bringing out strong emotions on BOTH sides. However, we need to remember that everyone is entitled to their opinion, so let’s all show some civility and remember that nothing positive can be accomplished from name calling.
