Fox News bashes Patricia Arquette’s Oscars speech

Standard

Actress Patricia Arquette set the political tone at this year’s Oscars by calling for wage equality between men and women—the response was loud both in the room and on social media.7eSeSGH.png (1013×528)

While many in the audience, and Meryl Streep in particular, loved the speech, Fox News contributor Stacey Dash said Arquette’s comments left her “appalled.”

“To
every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this
nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights,” Arquette
said. “It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal
rights for women in the United States of America.”

“I
was appalled,” Dash said on Fox News this morning. “I could not believe
it. First of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do her history. In 1963,
Kennedy passed an equal-pay law. It’s still in effect. I didn’t get the
memo that I didn’t have any rights.””I
agree with Mr. Trump,” Dash continued. “I miss the glamour, the
elegance, the class, the majesty of the Oscars. I’m an actress, I’ve
dreamed about it my whole life, and it just seems to be going away.” H/T ThinkProgress | Screengrab via ABC
