Would You Apologize for Not Being a Feminist for a Million Bucks?
Make that apology worth a million bucks an episode for Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting of Big Bang Theory:
Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting is taking back her recent comments about not relating feminism.
In a Redbook interview, the 29-year-old Big Bang Theory star was asked whether she considers herself a feminist.
"Is it bad if I say no?" she replied. "It's not really something I think about. Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around."
"I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality," she said.
She added that she enjoys cooking for husband Ryan Sweeting five nights a week because it makes her "feel like a housewife." The couple celebrated their one-year anniversary on New Year's Eve...
After Twitter users criticized her comments, she took to Instagram to do a bit of backpedaling.
"I'm completely blessed and grateful that strong women have paved the way for my success along with many others," she posted on Jan. 1. "I apologize if anyone was offended. Anyone that truly knows me, knows my heart and knows what I meant."
Another site headlining the apology makes note that Cuoco-Sweeting makes 1 million dollars per episode of her CBS sitcom.
Stars have to adhere to the party line or risk hurting their careers and fortunes. Most of them backpedal just like Kaley; standing up for what they truly believe is not worth the million an episode.
Would you call yourself a feminist for that kind of cash? How low would you go? For example, would you call yourself a "feminist boyfriend" in order to attract women?
