“In my Redbook article ,some people have taken offense to my comments regarding feminism- if any of you are In the “biz” you are well aware of how words can be taken out of context. 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. ❤️,” Kaley posted to Instagram.

    She seems just as stupid as her character on The Big Bang Theory.

    She had no need to apologize but she is absolutely right about people reading too much into what she said and interpreting it all wrong. She just wanted to emphasize that she is not an active “feminist” type and enjoys traditional roles. Of course she appreciates where she is and understands that things were not always this way – does not mean we have to go around being very ra ra about it all the time. Do people except successful black people to actively campaign against racism, or join some type of movement or organization that fights it? No, of course not. Does not mean they are racist, stupid or don’t appreciate those who campaigned for equal rights. The great irony is all these so called “feminists” bashing Kaley are doing the exact opposite of what they preach. But of course they will never understand that.

    Poor girl was bullied into saying this by so called “feminists”. There is just to much bad eggs in the movement for the feminist community to be saved. Right now it is just so tainted and has developed a bad following. That is really unfortunate.

    I’m not sure, but I think most of the hate was because of her level of ignorance on the topic not her stance. It just didn’t seem informed. There are plenty of people who choose not to call themselves a feminist. Keira Knightly for one, but she can explain why. Kayley’s article was contradictory, ‘they’ as she is now claiming made it seem like she was ungrateful and unintelligent. The article was unflattering.

    By being successful black people they are fighting the stereotype and fighting racism. Theres nothing a racist hates more than a Black person that doesn’t fit into their box. Also yes people do expect that. There is an expectation that influential people of colour will use some of that influence to help others like them.
