Actress Whines About “Unequal Pay.” Look What’s Happened to Her Now

Published

Actress Ruth Wilson, one of the four leading characters on “The Affair” has ended her run on the series, her character having killed herself off screen during Sunday night’s episode. Wilson’s departure comes just months after she whined about receiving “unequal pay” for her role on the show.

Showtime recently decided to renew the series for one final season.

Showbiz 411’s Roger Friedman pointed out the potential connection Monday and provided a quick flashback to Wilson’s comments during an interview on Radio Times back in February, where she expressed her discontent about “definitely” being paid less than male co-star Dominic West.

“I definitely get less money than a male in my situation would. Definitely,” she told Radio Times. Asked specifically about being paid less than West, she said, “Yeah. I think so. Certainly when I signed up to that project, I would have got paid less. Then they [the producers] might argue, ‘Well, he’s already done a major American TV show [‘The Wire’] so he’s already got a level.’ But even after a Golden Globe I’m not going to be on parity.”

She then explained why she hasn’t brought up the issue to West: “It’s quite hard to bring that up in a way. But it needs to be an open discussion and men need to help us out,” she said.

Echoing a theme from other “Time’s Up” advocates, Wilson added, “I don’t want more money, I just want equal money. Which means men have to take less.”

Friedman notes that while The Hollywood Reporter spoke to “The Affair” producer Sarah Treem about axing Wilson, “THR didn’t bother to ask Treem if that had anything to do with Wilson’s pay parity declaration– if Treem had decided to kill her off, or what happened.” Treem said only that Wilson asked to leave. Clearly, Wilson’s #TimeWasUp.

So this lady wants male actors, many of whom are bigger box office draws than a lot of leading women in Hollywood, to get paid less than what they are actually worth, simply because they don’t make as much? Do these women actually hear the crap flowing forth from their mouths?

This is how capitalism works. A product in high demand carries high value. A high value product is worth more money than a product of lesser value. If more women would put butts in theater seats, they’d be the ones receiving the lion’s share of the profit. Since they don’t, they make what they make.

Talk about entitlement thinking.

Twitter Blacklists Investigative Journalist After CNN Exposé

Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.

The mainstream media really doesn’t like to lose.  In fact, much of their thirst for power over their rivals is simply so that they can continue to bully us into watching. And with so many organizations completely aware of how this horrible system is set up, outlets with similar world views tend to look out for one another – particularly when it comes to attack from the other side of the media spectrum. Americans on Friday were beginning to accuse Twitter of doing just that. Critics accused Twitter Thursday of banning Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe from its platform over the right-wing guerrilla news outlet’s damning exposé of CNN. Project Veritas relaunched its #ExposeCNN campaign this week by sharing footage of CNN technical director Charles Chester revealing the liberal network’s dirty laundry. In the footage, Chester claimed that CNN’s “focus” during the 2020 election campaign was to “get rid of” President Trump, that the network hyped its coronavirus coverage for “gangbuster” ratings, and that it aims to “help” Black Lives Matter. On Thursday, O’Keefe’s Twitter account, which was sharing Project Veritas’ reporting, was permanently suspended over alleged use of “fake accounts.” “As outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam, ‘You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,’ and ‘you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts,'” a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News. This would be akin to a publisher retweeting a post that one of their authors had written, advertising the book that they collaborated on. Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.

Actor Vince Vaughn Stands His Ground About Viral Trump Meeting

Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…
