Charo Disses Sofia: "Sofia Vergara is Charo With Diarrhea"

The colombiana responded to the statement at the Los Angeles premiere of Machete Kills. “Of course she doesn’t like it,” Vergara, 41, told Univision, “No one likes being compared with someone else, especially someone younger.” 

However, many others see the resemblance. Felix Sanchez, chairman and co-founder of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts (NHFA) told the Huffington Post, “Sofia created an updated version of Charo, the ‘cuchi-cuhi’ 60s and 70s sexy and ditzy Latina persona.”

Despite being the top-earning actress on television, Vergara has been criticized for her ‘stereotypical’ portrayal of Latinas. 

What do you think? Can you see the similarities between Charo and Sofia?
