Sofia Vergara Fires Back at Emmy Haters

Posted Tuesday August 26, 2014 11:29 AM GMT

She caused quite a stir by standing on a rotating platform during Bruce Rosenblum’s speech at the 2014 Emmy Awards last night (August 25), and Sofia Vergara isn’t about to entertain criticism from naysayers.

The “Modern Family” star was hilarious as she hammed it up in her Roberto Cavalli dress while Rosenblum, the president of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, explained, “We never forget that our success is based on always giving the viewer something compelling to watch.”

And afterwards, Sofia responded to critics, who said things like, "If the Emmys want to celebrate women, maybe don't put Sofia Vergara on a turntable," and, “She was treated like a literal object.”

Vergara declared, “I think it's absolutely the opposite. It means someone can be hot and also be funny and make fun of herself and enjoy and work and make money, so I absolutely think it's ridiculous. And somebody who started this, and I know who she was, has no sense of humor and should lighten up a little bit!"
