Golden Globes 2018: All the fashion from the star-studded red carpet. "We thought you would be for pay equality and say #imwithcattsad", Schumer posted on her Instagram account a few hours before the awards show kicked off.
In December, E! host Catt Sadler quit her high profile gig after learning that her male co-host, Jason Kennedy, earned nearly twice as much as her. Longoria also blasted the network, telling Seacrest, "With Time's Up, we support gender equity and equal pay, and we hope E! follows that lead with Catt, as well".
Stars such as Justin Timberlake, Nick Jonas and more walked the red carpet wearing the Time's Up pin in support of the cause. Kudos to Rancic for continuing the interview and allowing Messing to share this.
After they spoke up, Sadler - who quit in December after E! declined to pay her the same amount as "E!" I miss Catt Sadler.More news: Jose Mourinho doesn't blame Antonio Conte for criticism
"I was shocked to hear that E! doesn't believe in paying their female co-host the same as their male co-host", the Will & Grace actress said.
Messing's interview is a reminder that E! won't be able to hide from its history of gender pay discrimination - even when it's supposed to be doing the interviewing.
Messing added: "That's something that can change tomorrow". "We appreciate Catt Sadler's many contributions at E! We want people to start having this conversation that women are just as valuable as men", Messing said. "Or at least come close?"
Rancic did not prematurely cut off the interview, letting Messing finish her stirring speech. How can I not echo the actions of my heroes and stand for what is right no matter what the cost?
