Actress and Fox News contributor Stacey Dash on Monday blasted actress Patricia Arquette‘s Oscar acceptance speech, pointing out Arquette had demanded a “wage equality” that women in the United States have had for more than 50 years.
“I was appalled. I could not believe it,” Dash said during a “Fox & Friends” appearance. “I mean, first of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do her history. In 1963, Kennedy passed the equal pay law. It’s still in effect. I didn’t get the memo that I didn’t have any rights.”
Dash was referring to the part of the speech where Arquette, who according to imdb.com made $225,000 per episode for the TV show “Medium,” called for “wage equality” for women.
“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 after winning the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in “Boyhood.”
“It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America!” she added before walking away with her Oscar and a “swag bag” valued at over $160,000.
Dash added that the political talk from Arquette and other award winners made her miss “the glamour, the elegance, the class, the majesty of the Oscars.”
She also said that if conservatives had spoken out at the Oscars they would have been told “we’re racist, we’re homophobic, we don’t like women.”
Liberal Hollywood at its finest.
