Former Fox News star Megyn Kelly has slammed Sally Field after the Hollywood actress used a recent award speech to apologize for being white.
During Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, Field took the stage to accept her lifetime achievement award.
However, she almost immediately turned her acceptance speech into an apology for being white.
“I was a little white girl with a pug nose born in Pasadena, California,” she told attendees.
“And when I look around this room tonight, I know my fight, as hard as it was, was lightweight compared to some of yours.”
Essentially, Field claimed that because of her skin color, she did not have to work as hard for her achievements as other actors and actresses who are racial minorities.
According to Field, some of the wealthy elites in the room were oppressed because of their skin color, making her achievements nothing compared to theirs.
Unfortunately for Field, not everyone was buying her “woke” racial virtue signaling.
Taking to her podcast, conservative commentator Megyn Kelly lambasted Field for her “pathetic speech.”
During a segment she co-hosted with Dr. Drew and Adam Carolla, Kelly shredded the speech as “pathetic, obvious virtue-signaling.”
Drew responded by saying, “My wife used to always say that no one is lower on the totem pole than a white female … and I think this is being proven to be correct.”
Kelly then blasted Field for her condescending assumption that all people of color are automatically oppressed.
“It’s so diminishing too, to like people of color who are in the room,” Kelly notes.
“Why should she assume that they’ve all had it so bad?”
Adam Carolla echoed that sentiment.
He highlighted that the Biden administration often clumps the poor and people of color together.
“I don’t understand why more people don’t raise their hand and go, ‘You know what you sound like when you say this kind of stuff.'”
