O. EM. GOSH.
It’s 2018, and inequality is still a HUGE problem, even in a progressive utopia like Hollywood.
Case in point: this woman’s name is Xayley Briers. She spends forty-five minutes a day running her Etsy storefront selling pet rocks. Do you know how much she makes? About $13 a day.
Pretty sad, right?
Well, it gets worse. While Briers works her butt off selling and shipping pet rocks all over the country for almost an hour each day, Hollywood A-lister and cisgendered white male Robert Downey Jr. made around $15 MILLION for his work in mega blockbuster Spider-Man Homecoming.
And what did he do? Simply help the movie make hundreds of millions of dollars worldwide. Both people are working hard, and one is making a LOT more money than the other. Why do you think that is? Oh, that’s right. It’s because she’s a WOMAN and he’s a MAN and our country apparently still doesn’t recognize women as human beings.
Can you say “injustice?” DISGUSTING.
