ABC’s Modern Family has angered some Peruvians who felt slighted by a joke on last week’s episode, according to the AP. After Jay (Ed O’Neill) makes a remark about Colombia, Gloria (Sofia Vergara) says, “Ah, here we go. Because, in Colombia, we trip over goats and we kill people in the street. Do you know how offensive that is? Like we’re Peruvians!” Milagros Lizarraga, founder of the online group Peru USA Southern Ca, told the AP, “It’s incredible that in a country where everything is politically correct, ABC would have a line of this sort.” As of press time, ABC had not responded to EW’s request for comment.
