'Outnumbered' Roundup: Charlize Theron Compares Media Intrusion to 'Feeling Raped'
Just last week, actress Gwyneth Paltrow was blasted for comparing mean online comments to suffering through war. Now another Hollywood star, Charlize Theron, is facing backlash for likening media intrusion to rape.
In an interview with Sky News, Theron was asked if she Googles herself. The actress said she doesn’t look at what’s written about her online, but added, “I think it’s when you start living in that world and doing that that you start, I guess, feeling raped.”
Today on Outnumbered, Sandra Smith called Theron’s remark “gross,” noting that she witnessed her mother kill her abusive father in South Africa. “She’s been through a lot. To make that comparison to a life that she has chosen, to a life that someone did not choose – a victim of rape – I think is just despicable.”
Watch the full discussion above.
Moving on to another fiery topic, a college fraternity is being called “racist” for throwing a party with grass skirts and coconut bras.
The Phi Gamma Delta chapter at the University of California-Irvine threw the themed party to raise money. School administrators are reportedly forcing the frat and other Greek organizations into “ongoing discussions about offending others.”
Andrea Tantaros weighed in saying that college campuses are supposed to encourage multiculturalism.
“I’ve worn a grass skirt at a college luau. I was in the Greek organization, in a sorority,” she said. “Just give me the list of rules, progressives, so that I know what’s appropriate and what’s not.”
Jedediah Bila thinks it’s a slippery slope. “Do we really want a society where now you have to research everything and make sure heaven forbid if I put on this type of skirt or this type of top, I might offend someone?”
