Tina Fey blasted college-educated white women who voted for
“A lot of this election was turned by white, college-educated women who now would like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV,” the actress opined during a celebrity Facebook Live fundraiser for the American Civil Liberties Union. “You can’t look away because it doesn’t affect you this minute, but it’s going to affect you eventually.”
The “30 Rock” star made the comments during a conversation that
was mostly about women’s reproductive rights with Donna Lieberman, executive director of the ACLU in New York, and Louise Melling, the organization’s deputy legal director.
At the end of the brief interview, Fey had one final comment:
“I personally would like to make my own pledge to college-educated white women to not look away, not pretend that things that are happening now won’t eventually affect me if we don’t put a stop to it,” she pleaded.
It’s not the first time Fey has commented on the November elections.
During an interview with David Letterman in December she lamented, “I definitely came out of last month feeling misogyny is as much more real than two years ago. But the thing I worry about [more] than actual human interaction is the Internet. Because that’s just despicable: people just being able to be awful at each other without having to be in the same room.”
She continued: “It’s metastasizing now, thanks to our glorious
president-elect who can’t muster the dignity of a seventh-grader.”
