Why Did Sofia Vergara Talk About “Anal” During Her Golden Globes Speech?

The world’s biggest stars were out in force on Sunday night, and one A-lister in particular caught the eye on the red carpet.

Sofia Vergara stole the show in an incredible dress during the ceremony in Los Angeles, but it wasn’t just her outfit that’s been making headlines overnight.

The Modern Family actress was introducing the 2017 Miss Golden Globes award in front of Hollywood’s biggest names, when she made an arse of it – quite literally.

“Good evening. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has an anal tradition… I didn’t mean anal I mean, they have an anus tradition!” she joked.

Sofia continued: “They have a tradition that they do every year of choosing a second generation perform to assist in the presentation of the award to fulfill the duties of Miss Golden Globes tonight are the three beautiful daughters of Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin, Scarlet, Sistine and Sophia Stallone.”

The joke was made at her own expense, and while it got laughs in the room, there were a few on twitter who were unimpressed. Teen Vogue’s Phillip Cardi wrote: “I wish we could live in a world where Sofia Vergara doesn’t have to CONSTANTLY MOCK HERSELF IN ORDER TO EXIST.”

Another added: “Sofia Vergara is talented, beautiful & YES, has an accent. Because she speaks MORE THAN 1 LANGUAGE. Can you really NOT write other jokes?”

The 44-year-old didn’t seem too put out by any criticism though, and partied the night away with Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, who was wearing a stunning dress very similar to hers.
