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.

Michael Moore Lashes Out At Joe Biden For Reaching Out To ‘White Racist Redneck Votes In Michigan’

Michael Moore

So it seems that, despite the fact he’ll be casting his vote for Joe Biden in November, radical leftist filmmaker — a term that should be used very loosely — Michael Moore is not exactly a big fan of the crusty, old white fellow’s election behavior. In fact, over the weekend, Biden accepted the endorsement of former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a member of the GOP, a move which left Moore extremely disappointed and upset with the former vice president. Enough so that he actually scolded him for trying to get “white racist redneck votes in Michigan.” via Daily Wire: “The Biden campaign, in an effort to convince Flint voters to stay home on Nov 3 and lose Michigan again, happily announced & embraced the endorsement of former Gov. Rick Snyder — the man who poisoned Flint’s water. 10,000 children [with] permanent brain damage,” Michael Moore tweeted. “Countless dead. Shame!” “So the Biden campaign thought getting a few more White racist redneck votes in Michigan was more important than getting the Black vote in Flint?” he later added. “Better to embrace the mass-poisoning Republican ex-Governor than worry about ‘those Black people?’ Are u nuts? Apologize & retract NOW.” https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302276793492221953 https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302305541209894913 https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302314275567009794 Ever since President Donald Trump’s rousing performance at the RNC, Moore has been warning Democrats not to get complacent. In late August, he shared a poll from Michigan that had Trump besting Biden by 2 points (47% to 45%), citing it as evidence that Democrats are not sounding the alarm enough. “Someone needs to pull the fire alarm NOW. Where are the stories about Trump gaining on Biden?” Moore said on Twitter. “Below’s a poll from Fri in Michigan. Last week Trump pulled within 4 pts of Biden. Now in one poll Trump is AHEAD of Biden in MI…

Terry Crews Comments On Racist Comments Made By Nick Cannon: I Told Ya So

Published

on

Actor Terry Crews is slowly, but surely, becoming a conservative hero as he continues to take the Black Lives Matter movement and the political correctness of the progressive movement, refusing to give in to the madness and hatred being spewed out on the left. Crews has stated time and again that he’s not going to hate on white people, which is really what’s going on beneath the veneer of social justice BLM hides behind. It’s a refreshing stance to see these days to be sure. Recently, actor and TV host Nick Cannon was booted from ViaCom after making anti-Semitic and anti-white comments during a radio show. Crews has now responded to those comments and he couldn’t be more right. via The Daily Wire: “We have to include this white voice, this Hispanic voice, this Asian voice. We have to include it RIGHT NOW, because if we don’t […] it’s going to slip into something we are really not prepared for,” Crews posted, quoting himself. “Terry Crews ‘THE TALK interview’ June 16th, 2020,’” he added. https://twitter.com/terrycrews/status/1283280895403864064 In reaction to Crews’ pointed tweet, one Twitter user told the actor “no black person” will have his back: “You going so hard against Nick Cannon, but when you fall, NO BLACK PERSON will have your back. Watch.” “When I was young, I was never afraid of the KKK,” Crews responded. “It was people like you. The threats, the intimidation, discouraging free thought, and ‘the insult of acting white.’ My heart breaks because your behavior only reveals you don’t know how powerful you are.” https://twitter.com/terrycrews/status/1283293611208183808 Just to give you a little context for how dedicated Crews is to his position and how much wisdom and truth this man has, one of his tweets from the month of June says, “Defeating White Supremacy without White people…
