Big Hollywood’s Kelli Serio criticized Hollywood’s hypocrisy on Friday’s “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network.
“Take a look at Sean Penn and Alec Baldwin, right? Both of these men routinely make comments, disparaging comments towards minorities, yet they’re given a free pass. They don’t have a trouble finding work, or they don’t seem to, right?” she stated.
Serio added that while Sean Penn’s joke about Birdman director Alejandro Iñárritu’s green card “was a joke, but can you imagine if a conservative would have said that? What would have happened? Instead, they laughed it off, right? Free pass.”
She also talked about Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence making less for their roles in American Hustle than their male co-starts, asking “why are they not entitled to equal pay? These top executives for minor and major film studios, 100% white? 94% male. These guys are the ones in charge of financing, green lighting all these films. They’re controlling the narrative. You’re telling me that, you know, women aren’t entitled to equal pay?”
Serio also criticized Hollywood stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio for protesting climate change yet using private jets and yachts, saying “he cares about the environment, yet he’s riding around yachts, travelling around the world on his private jet,” and Gwyneth Paltrow for protesting in favor of wage equality while having a holiday gift guide full of massively expensive gifts.
She concluded by discussing the e-mails sent by Sony executives about President Obama.
