Kaley Cuoco Apologizes For Feminism Comments, Claims Redbook Quotes Were “Taken Out Of Context”
Kaley Cuoco started off 2015 with an apology. On New Year’s Day, the actress took to Instagram to clarify her statements about feminism.
As Gossip Cop reported, Redbook asked Cuoco for its new February issue whether she considered herself a feminist, and the star replied, “Is it bad if I say no?” She went on, “It’s not really something I think about. Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around… I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that’s because I’ve never really faced inequality.”
“I cook for Ryan five nights a week. It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that,” Cuoco further told the magazine. “I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I’m so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him. My mom was like that, so I think it kind of rubbed off.”
An online backlash to Cuoco’s interpretation of feminism ensued over the final days of 2014, prompting Cuoco to clear the air via Instagram on Thursday. “In my Redbook article, some people have taken offense to my comments regarding feminism,” she wrote. “If any of you are in the ‘biz’ you are well aware of how words can be taken out of context.”
Cuoco continued, “I’m completely blessed and grateful that strong women have paved the way for my success along with many others. I apologize if anyone was offended. Anyone that truly knows me, knows my heart and knows what I meant. ♥” “The Big Bang Theory” star also shared the above photo from the magazine. What do you think of Cuoco’s apology?
