On June 24, 2020, images of Gonzalez wearing blackface on an appearance of a Telenovela resurfaced on social media. After the pictures started circulating in the media, many people criticized her for wearing blackface makeup. Following that, she was forced to issue an apology, that was released to Page Six saying:
” I am deeply sorry and ashamed about having worn blackface makeup shown in the images circulating. As a 15-year old child actor on my first job in a Mexican telenovela, I was pressured against my will, and with no negotiating power, I could not advocate for myself in the situation. I wish I had the voice and knowledge then that I have now.”
In the apology statement released on Page Six, the actress went on to address photos of her wearing traditional geisha clothing while she was on a trip to Japan. The statement read: ” According to my host, it is considered an intercultural exchange to dress up in their traditional clothing and makeup. It is seen as an appreciation of their culture, however, I understand that out of context, this calls for a dialogue about contemporary cultural appropriation.”
Adding to that, she shared her personal experiences with discrimination saying: “As a Mexican woman and an immigrant, I have faced racism and ignorance throughout my life and career.” She continued and said ” I would never intentionally participate in anything that I knew would cause harm or distress to another person. More than gestures of apology, it is my responsibility to educate myself and use my voice to stand up for others, and again I deeply apologize for hurting anyone.”
