Keep @EvaLongoria safe at all costs.
"There's a bidding war over this book, which means all the publishers wanted this book. And they wanted some sort of way in to a different community. The problem with that is that the publishing industry is 80% white, from agents to editors and publicists,"
“What made me really upset was when the publisher said, 'We had to cancel the book tour because of safety concerns,' which made my community look like we're crazy people going to cause trouble. We're not.”
“We're just being outspoken about the inaccuracies of what this book represents.”
The last thing I'll say that it really pissed me off — I'm gonna say it, I'm gonna get crazy — is [that the author said] "I wish a browner person than me wrote this book."
“They did! It was [Sonia Nazario's] Enrique's Journey, [Óscar Martínez's] The Beast—many Latino authors have written this story! Oprah didn't pick them."
