The people of Peru are not happy with a joke that was featured on this week’s episode of Modern Family, reports The Associated Press.

The controversy stems from Sofia Vergara‘s character, Gloria, who responds to her husband’s quip about Colombia with her own insult.  “Ah, here we go,” Gloria begins to respond. “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!”

Shortly after the episode aired, Vegara, who like her character is also a native of Colombia, received a large volume of insulting tweets, according to the wire service, with some demanding an explanation for the line.

Fans of Sofia Vergara, are upset to find out that her voice is dubbed by another woman on Modern Family playing in Columbia.

Now with the raging success of the hit sitcom, Modern Family has been picked up in other countries, including Vergara’s home of Columbia – and fans aren’t pleased to see that Sofia Vergara isn’t the voice over of her own character, Gloria Delgado-Pritchet.

Vergara says:

“It’s about to air in Colombia and they’re having problems because they translate the whole show in Spanish and they have somebody who does my voice… They’re like, ‘We know that’s not you! That doesn’t sound like you.’ They’re complaining.”
