Jessica Chastain & Lena Dunham Slam Bill O'Reilly at Power of Women Event

Jessica Chastain and Lena Dunham hit the carpet while attending Variety’s Power of Women event on Friday morning (April 21) at Cipriani Midtown in New York City.

The ladies both spoke at the event and took time to slam Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, who was just fired from The O’Reilly Factor amid claims of sexual harassment.

Lena spoke to honor Gretchen Carlson, who was the first woman at Fox News to speak out against sexual harassment at the company.

“I’m in the very privileged position to be able to say whatever the f–k I want most of the time,” Lena said (via Variety). “But when you work in a corporate infrastructure the challenge of coming out about sexual harassment is so massive. And to see a woman who surmounted that and bravely made space for other women to do the same is deeply inspired.”

“We also should’ve known a few years ago about Bill O’Reilly when he confused a loofah with a falafel. So this isn’t fresh info,” she added.

Jessica decided not to refer to Bill by his name during her speech.

“Most recently women said ‘No’ to a certain Fox News anchor,” she said. “After years of sexual assault accusations and settlements were unearthed, women’s rights groups called for the advertisers to pull their support from the show and companies listened. And so did Fox. As a result, the 8 o’clock news hour will be known as simply ‘The Factor.’ This is our collective power in action.”

Other women in attendance included Salma Hayek, Audra McDonald, Danielle Brooks, Chelsea Clinton, Gayle King, Ashley Graham, Vanessa Bayer, and Tina Knowles.

FYI: Jessica is wearing a Carolina Herrera dress and Stella Luna shoes. Ashley is wearing a Fleur du Mal corset and Schutz shoes.

Tina Knowles Responds to Beyonce Over Corny Joke Instagrams

Tina Knowles took to Instagram to continue her corny joke video series – where she tells a silly joke to her followers.

Before the joke, Tina said, “You know, Beyoncé was telling me the other day that I shouldn’t be doing corny jokes all the time. But I told her, when you get to my age, you gotta find your light. So if you find some good light, you’re supposed to take advantage of it.”

Beyonce was saying it’s obvious mama that you are videoing several jokes at a time . ( on the same day) you don’t have to put one out everyday. When I said good light I meant literally good light!!! Gods light! Haha not a spiritual lite. So I was saying if I look okay in the light I’m going to video several at the same time. My children never try to take my light from me. But I don’t t think anyone likes their mom on instagram,” Tina added in the caption.

Tina Knowles Announces Instagram Break, Says Her Kids Think She's 'Not That Great on Social Media'

Tina Knowles has announced that she will be taking a break from social media after she accidentally liked a negative post about Jennifer Hudson.

The 62-year-old businesswoman and fashion designer has been active on Instagram over the years, but it doesn’t sound like her daughters Beyonce and Solange are pleased about it.

“They always say that I am not that great on social media I have to be very careful,” Tina wrote.

Tina caused a little bit of controversy on Instagram this week after she accidentally and unknowingly pressed the “like” button on a comment that said something mean about Jennifer‘s voice.

“I am writing this commentary for Jennifer Hudson and not for the evil mean people that are making this into a social media ugly thing. I’ve known Jennifer Hudson for many years and have totally been in admiration of her talent and beauty and kindness I would never ever say anything negative about her or agree with anything negative!” Tina said in her lengthy note on Instagram. “My children worried that I might accidentally touch something when looking at other sites and have warned me about it. They always say that I am not that great on social media I have to be very careful.”
