Gina Rodriguez Wants To Believe We're 'Misreading The Tone' of Deadline's Controversial Diversity Article

Gina Rodriguez strikes a pose on the red carpet while arriving at the Nuevas Latinas Living Fabulosa Event at The Times Center on Wednesday (March 25) in New York City.

The 30-year-old actress was joined by her Jane the Virgin co-star Diane Guerrero and Orange Is The New Black‘s Selenis Leyva at the event celebrating Latina women.

At the event, Gina opened up about how she felt about Deadline‘s controversial diversity article and Shonda Rhimes‘ reaction to it.

“I’d love to believe that we’re misreading the tone of that article. I don’t think there’s anybody that reads that and agrees that anything’s being taken away from anyone,” Gina expressed (via Refinery29), speaking to the writer’s claim that agents’ white clients are missing opportunities because of an emphasis on casting minorities. “Let’s just hope the writer has the opportunity to clear up anything we’ve maybe misread as negative. I love to give people the benefit of the doubt. Nobody wants negative in their life.”

FYI: Dianne is wearing an AMI Clubwear dress.
