Actress Stacey Dash says she’s ‘Appalled’ at Patricia Arquette’s Oscar Speech on Women’s Pay


“Patricia Arquette needs to do her history,” Fox contributor says about Oscar winner’s take on equal pay for women

Fox News contributor Stacey Dash didn’t take kindly to Oscar winner Patricia Arquette demanding wage equality for women while accepting her first Oscar on Sunday.

“I was appalled. I could not believe it,” Dash, a former actress, said on “Fox & Friends” Monday morning. “First of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do her history. In 1963, [President] Kennedy passed an equal pay wall. It’s still in effect. I didn’t get the memo that I didn’t have any rights.”

Arquette, who won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance in “Boyhood,” was greeted with a warm applause from the star-studded audience at the Dolby Theatre when ending her acceptance speech on the issue. Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez were particularly enthusiastic.

“To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights,” Arquette said. “It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America.”
