Chris Hayes Mocks Steve Doocy’s Frozen Panic: ‘Let It Go’
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes had some fun at Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy’s expense last night following a segment on the Fox News morning show that singled out Disney’s Frozen as an example of Hollywood’s supposed bias against men.
“We don’t have to empower women at the cost of tearing down men,” Penny Young Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America, told Doocy Wednesday morning. “We want to encourage masculinity, not villainize masculinity.”
The Fox host agreed, noting, “It would be nice for Hollywood to have more male figures in those kinds of movies.”
“Some real hot takes there from your friendly, neighborhood Fox News stars,” Hayes remarked on All In, “uncovering the hidden injustice men are suffering in Hollywood right now, particularly at the hands of the shameless, man-hating Disney empire, which has a long history of brainwashing our children with evil or bumbling male characters like Hercules or Tarzan or Aladdin, to name just a few.”
Hayes attempted to reassure Doocy’s concerns about the portrayal of men in Hollywood by pointing to stats including the fact that 71% of speaking roles in 2013’s top-grossing films went to men, while only 29% were women.
“So, my advice to Steve Doocy is: Let it go, let it go,” he concluded.
