Rosie Perez Talks The Counselor, Boxing, and Twitter

Although her management wants her to tweet for professional purposes, Perez only uses the social media site to share her love for boxing. “You know, people can be really mean and nasty on Twitter,” she said, “...But when I’m tweeting about boxing, I swear to goodness, I would swear that 98 percent of the exchange and the feedback are positive.”

However, despite the overwhelming positive reception to her Twitter updates, she has encountered some displeased fans. “I did get one person who was following me. He tweeted me, ‘I love you so much. I’ll still watch everything you’re going to be in. But you tweet too much about boxing. I’m unfollowing you.’ I laughed so hard...he unfollowed and blocked me!”
