Fox News says Emily Blunt should “leave Hollywood” so “some American women” can act

Fox News just put Emily Blunt on blast. After the actress, who recently became an American citizen, joked that she questioned her decision after watching the recent Republican presidential debate, the three friendly hosts of the Fox & Friends morning show laid into her, with one host, Anna Kooiman, remarking, “Well you know what, then why don’t you leave Hollywood, California, and let some American women take on the roles that you’re getting, because Americans are watching your movies and lining your pockets.”

Though hosts Kooiman, Steve Doocy, and Brian Kilmeade (the brown haired guy who’s not Steve Doocy) admit that Blunt is “very pretty” and seem to know that she both starred in The Devil Wears Prada and is married to The Office’s John Krasinski, they don’t seem to understand hyperbole or sarcasm. Doocy, instead, seems to think that Blunt has made a fatal error and “Dixie Chicked herself,” saying “She has alienated half the country that now will think twice about going to one of her movies.”


Blunt’s new movie, Sicario, opens in select theaters this weekend.
