La actriz Zoe Saldana de COLOMBIANA dice que #ColombiaIsBeautiful es “estúpido”

En una entrevista con The Wall Street Journal, la actriz Zoe Saldana opinó sobre la campaña #ColombiaIsBeautiful, cual se formó para llamar la atención a la película COLOMBIANA. Por Colombia Nacional, una organización creada para educar a la gente acerca de la historia y cultura de Colombia, ha aparecido en las varias noticias varias sobre su campaña, y el Wall Street Journal tiene ahora a Saldaña dando sus pensamientos sobre # ColombiaIsBeautiful.

 

WSJ: El grupo PorColombia ha lanzado una campaña contra "Colombiana", diciendo que representa a los latinos en una luz negativa. ¿Cómo responde usted?

ZS: ¿Qué vergüenza? No sé, me gustaría saber cómo responder a comentarios estúpidos y poco inteligentes, pero no lo hago, no soy una persona estúpida. Lo siento, no me gusta meterme en la política, pero es una lástima que hay tanta gente que vive con tanta ignorancia. Ella [la protogonista] podría haber sido de Puerto Rico, podría haber sido de Goa, que podría haber sido de China. Pero Luc Besson sólo quería que ella fuera de Colombia. Una vez que usted vea la película, no tiene nada que ver con las drogas, tiene que ver con la violencia. Pero la violencia vive en todas las ciudades en todos los rincones de todas las partes del mundo. Así que, dije, PorColombia, ¿me estás tomando el pelo? He estado tratando de ser diplomático al respecto porque no quiero ser amargo. ¿Por qué cree que esto se hizo de una manera tan simple?

Actress Zoe Saldana of COLOMBIANA Thinks #ColombiaIsBeautiful Campaign is “Stupid”

In an interview today with The Wall Street Journal, actress Zoe Saldana discussed the recent #ColombiaIsBeautiful campaign being waged to call attention to the movie COLOMBIANA. Por Colombia Nacional, an organization formed to educate people about Colombia's history and culture, has appeared in several news stories about the campaign, and the WSJ now has Saldana on record discussing her thoughts about #ColombiaIsBeautiful. Saldana, who is Puerto Rican and Dominican, is a rising Latina Hollywood star.

 

WSJ: The nonprofit group PorColombia has launched a campaign against "Colombiana," saying it portrays Latinos in a negative light. How do you respond?

ZS: Shame on them? I don't know, I wish I knew how to address stupid unintelligent comments but I don't, I'm not a stupid person. I'm sorry, I never like to get political but it's just a shame that there are so many people out there that think so ignorantly. She could have been from Puerto Rico, she could have been from Goa, she could have been from China. But Luc Besson just wanted her to be from Colombia. Once you watch the movie, it has nothing to do with drugs, it has to do with violence. But violence lives in every city in every corner in every part of the world. So that said, PorColombia, are you kidding me? I've been trying to be diplomatic about it because I don't want to be bitter. Why would you think that this was made in such a simple fashion?
