Earlier this week, we reported that liberals like Hillary Clinton were melting down over Barbie director Greta Gerwig and star Margot Robbie being snubbed by the Oscars. Now, the former Fox News host Megyn Kelly is firing back to slam the “new feminists” who are upset about Gerwig and Robbie not being nominated.

Kelly Sounds Off
“It’s so ridiculous now that women – now that we’re considered equals of course, and are getting treated like – 1706489594 we deserve all the awards,” Kelly said on her eponymous SiriusXM talk show. “All the women we choose need to be nominated for the positions we think otherwise, the f–g patriarchy. That’s literally what they’re tweeting out that … ‘they made a movie about the patriarchy and then the patriarchy kept them down.’”
Kelly went on to point out that while Gerwig and Robbie were not nominated in the categories that they were expected to be recognized in, Barbie actress America Ferrera scored an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her work in the film.
“Did they keep America Ferrera down because she seems really thrilled that she got this nomination for Best Supporting Actress and Greta got a nod as best screenwriter, but it’s never enough,” Kelly continued. “Barbie didn’t get enough nominations. Alright, so the new feminists are very, very angry that Margot Robbie did not get nominated for Best Actress and Greta Gerwig did not get nominated for Best Director because, you see, they were entitled to. That’s pretty much what I understand is the argument.”
“The best supporting actress, America Ferrera who was in that movie, she got the nod. And for best screenplay, Greta Gerwig was nominated with the man with whom she co-wrote the movie,” she added. “But that’s not enough, you see. You’re a misogynist unless you actually make Margot Robbie the nominee for Best Actress and recognize Greta in her directing role. And that’s just how life works.”

Ferrera Whines About Barbie Oscar Snubs
This came after Ferrera responded to her Oscar nomination by whining about Gerwig and Robbie being snubbed.
“I was incredibly disappointed that they weren’t nominated,” Ferrera told Variety. “Greta has done just about everything that a director could do to deserve it. Creating this world, and taking something that didn’t have inherent value to most people and making it a global phenomenon. It feels disappointing to not see her on that list.”
“What Margot achieved as an actress is truly unbelievable,” Ferrera continued. “One of the things about Margot as an actress is how easy she makes everything look. And perhaps people got fooled into thinking that the work seems easy, but Margot is a magician as an actress in front of the screen, and it was one of the honors of my career to get to witness her pull off the amazing performance she did. She brings so much heart and humor and depth and joy and fun to the character. In my book, she’s a master.”
Even the two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton got in on the action by comforting Gerwig and Robbie on social media.
“Greta & Margot,” Clinton began, “While it can sting to win the box office but not take home the gold, your millions of fans love you.”
“You’re both so much more than Kenough,” she continued, borrowing a phrase from the film. She concluded her post by adding the nauseating hashtag, “#HillaryBarbie.”
The liberal meltdown over the Barbie Oscar snubs has been nothing short of ridiculous, and we’re glad that Kelly had the guts to call them out on it. What do you think about what Kelly had to say? Let us know in the comments section.
