Gloria Estefan & More Celebs React to Fidel Castro's Death

The recent death of former Cuba President Fidel Castro has struck many people in different ways.

Singer Gloria Estefan, who was born in Havana and fled to the United Sates with her family as a result of the Cuban revolution, took to social media after news broke.

“Although the death of a human being is rarely cause for celebration, it is the symbolic death of the destructive ideologies that he espoused that, I believe, is filling the Cuban exile community with renewed hope and a relief that has been long in coming,” Gloria wrote on Instagram. “And although the grip of Castro‘s regime will not loosen overnight, the demise of a leader that oversaw the annihilation of those with an opposing view, the indiscriminate jailing of innocents, the separation of families, the censure of his people’s freedom to speak, state sanctioned terrorism and the economic destruction of a once thriving & successful country, can only lead to positive change for the Cuban people and our world.”

She continued, “May freedom continue to ring in the United States, my beautiful adopted country, and may the hope for freedom be inspired and renewed in the heart of every Cuban in my homeland and throughout the world.”

Meanwhile, former baseball player Jose Canseco, who was also born in Havana, reacted as well.

“I was born in Cuba and Fidel Castro was our leader. Came to the USA because of him,” Jose tweeted. “Can’t say I feel anything for his death. There is a reason many defected to USA”

America Ferrera Opens Up About Diversity In Film & TV!

America Ferrera is all smiles as she hits the red carpet at The Paley Center for Media’s Tribute To Hispanic Achievements In Television held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (May 18) in New York City.

The 32-year-old actress was joined at the event by Orange Is The New Black stars Selenis Leyva and Jackie Cruz, Alice Braga, Lana Parrilla, Today show host Natalie Morales, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, and Jimmy Smits.

America recently opened up about diversity in film and television in a brand new guest column for Deadline!

“When I look at the faces on television and compare them with film, I realize how far we’ve come on the small screen. It’s important to celebrate the success that’s been made even as we acknowledge there’s further still to travel,” America expressed. “All audiences want to see the world they live in reflected on screens big and small. At a certain point, it becomes unavoidable to notice that we’re being ignored. Young people are turning to YouTube, Snapchat and Vine to find the content that speaks to them, and you have to wonder why. Viewers don’t want to be pandered to; they just want genuine, authentic storytelling experiences. That was what first drew me to Superstore.”

FYI: America is wearing a Stella McCartney dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, a Michael Kors clutch, and Jennifer Fisher jewelry.
