“Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy suggested Hollywood is “empowering women by turning our men into fools and villains” during an interview with the head of a conservative activist group on Wednesday morning.

Doocy specifically fretted that “Frozen Fever,” the upcoming sequel to Disney’s 2013 animated hit “Frozen,” would “depict men as evil and cold and bumblers.”

His guest, Penny Young Nance of Concerned Women for America, agreed.

“It’s not just Disney,” she said. “Hollywood in general has often sent the message that men are superfluous, that they’re stupid, that they’re in the way, and if they contribute anything to a family, it’s a paycheck.”

Nance suggested that parents of boys should avoid taking their sons to the movies with negative messages about men.

“We want them to know that they’re essential,” she continued. “We want to encourage masculinity and not villainize masculinity.”

“It would be nice for Hollywood to have more male figures in those kinds of movies,” Doocy added.
