Tiny Fey makes misogyny claim
Tina Fey believes that misogyny is "much more real" than it was two ago.
The 46-year-old actress has said that she believes women’s rights are in a "throwback moment" and are getting worse than they were before, which she blames on the recent US presidential election which saw controversial candidate Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the race to the White House.
The ’30 Rock’ actress said: "It feels like we were on the precipice of things getting pretty good, and now we’re in a bit of a throwback moment. I definitely came out of last month feeling misogyny is much more real than two years ago."
But it isn’t just women’s rights and equality that upsets the ‘Whiskey Tango Foxtrot’ star though, as Tina says what scares her more about the world today is "the internet".
She said: "The thing I worry about [more] than actual human interaction is the internet.
"Because that’s just despicable: people just being able to be awful to each other without having to be in the same room.
"It’s metastasising now, thanks to our glorious president-elect who can’t muster the dignity of a seventh-grader. It’s so easy for people to abuse each other and to abandon all civility."
And although Tina might not like the internet very much, she admits it does come in handy for helping her keep in touch with her former ‘Saturday Night Live’ (‘SNL’) co-stars – including Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Paula Pell – as they "talk as a group" using their computers.
Speaking in the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine, Tina said: "I have a group of women that I worked with at ‘SNL’ and we talk as a group through the computer every single day. Dozens of times a day. And it’s very nice.
"It’s something we’ve come to in our 40s. It was easy when we worked at ‘SNL’: You’re on top of each other 60 hours a week. So it’s nice that we are maintaining this friendship."
