Felicity Huffman’s previous Desperate Housewives co-star Ricardo Chavira has knocked the actress’ 14-day prison sentence for her role in the U.S. college admissions scandal, insisting it’s not enough.
The actor, who played Eva Longoria’s TELEVISION partner Carlos on the show, insists his one-time castmate’s punishment is too lenient– and another example of “white opportunity” in America.
” I saw 8 years worth of it (on Desperate Housewives), so I know what I’m speaking about,” Ricardo tweeted. “Accountability and Duty do not indicate s ** t to these individuals.
” I have actually seen a life time of it being a halfbreed, and I have actually struggled w (with) the intricacies of it every day w all the cultural predisposition I’ve received on both ends. However whatever. Slap on the wrist. Sorry, but this s ** t.
“( I’m) tired of silly people and their silly arguments. If you have not lived it, you actually have no say. Stay in your lane.”.
Earlier this year, Huffman pleaded guilty to charges she paid off education authorities in a desperate effort to score her daughter a place at an elite university. She learned her fate in a federal courtroom in Boston, Massachusetts on 13 September and will serve 2 week behind bars. She will also have to pay a $30,000 fine, complete 250 hours of social work and she will be on probation for one year following her release from jail.
She was among 30 parents charged with cheating the system.
