Fox News’ “The Five” co-host Greg Gutfeld on Monday slammed actress Patricia Arquette for her speech at the Oscars calling for wage equality in the U.S.
“Now one could point out that single childless women in their twenties earn more than their male counterparts, that it’s not about equal rights. Wage discrimination after all is illegal,” Gutfeld said after playing a clip of Arquette’s speech.
The Fox host then compared the wage gap to life expectancy.
“Women live nearly five years longer than men. If this were reversed, could you imagine the outcry? We would talk about life disparity, not wage disparity. We’d protest against the life ceiling, not the glass ceiling, and demand that men die sooner just for the sake of equality,” he said.
Gutfeld concluded by suggesting that Arquette’s speech was hypocritical.
“But if Hollywood wants to talk about equality, look at their two worlds: one of dramatic concern on the Oscars and the other of absurd luxury. Their gift bags cost $125,000 each. That’s more than they par their maids, their drivers, their leaf blowers, their hookers combined,” he said. “So as the Oscars trash America, the world outside is going nuts. Women are being enslaved by a death cult or stoned to death for adultery. True, there may be women in Syria who would have applauded the Oscar’s speeches if ISIS hadn’t chopped off their hands for using cell phones.”
