Journalist and podcast host Megyn Kelly unloaded on actress Sally Field over her recent apology for being “white,” calling her words “pathetic” and “baloney.”
Kelly tore into the 76-year-old star during her latest episode of “The Megyn Kelly Show,” asking why she was “sorry for being a little White girl with privilege” at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, where she accepted a lifetime achievement award.
“She’s very sorry about one thing, and that appears to be the fact that she’s White,” Megyn Kelly said before playing the clip of Sally Field grovelling to the woke mob.
“I was a little White girl with a pug nose born in Pasadena, California. And when I look around this room tonight, I know my fight, as hard as it was, was lightweight compared to some of yours. I thank you. And I applaud you,” Ms. Field said.
Kelly then entered sarcasm mode in interacting with guests Dr. Drew Pinsky and Adam Carolla on her Sirius XM’s program.
“News flash, White girls in America don’t have any troubles that are worth remembering when you’re in front of a group that has a lot of people of color,” Kelly said.
“It’s such baloney, Dr. Drew. It’s such pathetic, obvious virtue signaling.”
Kelly suggested Field could have given a speech about the real struggles actresses faced during he 1960s and 70s
“Sally Field could get up there and say ‘I came up in the industry where the casting couch … was alive and well. That’s why we produced people like Harvey Weinstein,” she added.
She suggested Field could have stayed “true to her personality” by saying something like “Too many women from Marilyn Monroe forward have had to be subjected to that nonsense to get on the big screen. So I’m grateful for the opportunities that I created for myself and I nailed them. I did really well and I feel good about it.”
“She’s basically got to be like, ‘I’m the little White girl from Pasadena, and I basically suffered nothing like you people did here in this room.’ How does she know?” Kelly said.
“It’s so diminishing to people of color who are in the room. She just assumes that they are all oppressed? Why should she assume that they’ve all had it so bad?” Ms. Kelly said.

Megan should have shown compassion for anyone that weak in the head. It really is like making fun of a retarded person. Or she should have outed her as a racist.
So Sally knows the casting couch, huh? lolz!! I’ sure she does!!
