PATRICIA ARQUETTE TALKS CONTROVERSIAL OSCAR SPEECH
Surprisingly, Patricia Arquette is doing damage control following backlash from her Oscar speech and backstage call to action for gays and people of colour to fight for women’s rights.
She told The Wrap this week, “You can’t go back in time. But, I guess I would have chosen my words a little more carefully. I think the way people perceived it is not the way at all I intended.”
Patricia added, “Everyone should help women. Everyone has a vested interest. Every single lesbian and transgender woman is a woman. Every single woman in the African American community is getting impacted. Every single woman in the Latino community is being impacted. This is having devastating economic consequences across the board…If people can throw their weight behind women I think it would really help each of these bases.”
