Maria Conchita Alonso has been stripped of a part in “The Vagina Monologues” because the actress has endorsed California Republican Tim Donnelly for governor in a campaign advertisement, according to an Inquisitr report on Monday. Maria Conchita Alonso is a performer.

Maria Conchita Alonso, who was a former Miss World-Venezuela reportedly has 93 acting performances to her credit. Conchita Alonso, born in Cuba and raised in Venezuela, has been a very outspoken rival of the socialist dictatorships in both Cuba and Venezuela.

In a video, Conchita Alonso gives a Spanish-language presentation supports the Republican-Tea Party candidate, Donnelly. In a somewhat humorous presentation, she says that politicians and big government are killing our prosperity, driving businesses out of our state of California, pushing welfare costs through the roof, and driving our schools into the ground. She says, “We’re screwed.”

Conchita Alonso was going to perform in a Spanish-language version of “The Vagina Monologues” next month at the Brava Theater Center in San Francisco, however the outcry over her politics has resulted in her loosing the performance job. It is believed that her vulgar language in the advertisement upset people.

The actress’ controversial opinion on immigration is that she believes illegal immigrants who are already in the country and who do not have a criminal background should be helped. She is all for those people who contribute and who are good people. However, she believes that those who are not need to be taken out.

The producer of the show, Eliana Lopez, said, “We really cannot have her in the show, unfortunately. Of course, she has the right to say whatever she wants. But we’re in the middle of the Mission. Doing what she is doing is against what we believe.”

Naturally, there are many who disagree an actress should lose a part for expressing her political views and supporting a Republican-Tea Party candidate.
