Gal Gadot Responds to 'Wonder Woman' U.N. Controversy for Being 'Scantily Clad'

Gal Gadot Responds to 'Wonder Woman' U.N. Controversy for Being 'Scantily Clad'

Wonder Woman was once named an honorary ambassador to the U.N., but a petition by over 600 staffers ended with the ambassadorship being taken away.

The petition stated that “a large-breasted white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit with an American flag motif and knee-high boots” should not represent the Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women.

Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman in the new DC films, was asked about the controversy in a recent interview.

“There are so many horrible things that are going on in the world, and this is what you’re protesting, seriously?” Gal responded (via Time.) “When people argue that Wonder Woman should ‘cover up,’ I don’t quite get it. They say, ‘If she’s smart and strong, she can’t also be sexy.’ That’s not fair. Why can’t she be all of the above?”
