Egomaniac Gloria Allred Just Got Publicly Humiliated At Daytime Emmys
Glory hound Gloria Allred got her comeuppance on Sunday night as she appeared at the Daytime Emmy Awards and did not get the warm welcome she was anticipating. Not by a long shot.
Host Mario Lopez began the evening by saying that there would be no politics involved in the annual awards ceremony, but Allred must have thought that didn’t mean she could not bring up a controversial topic, or she didn’t care. And she used her moment on stage to do just that.
Allred was presenting the award for Best Legal/Courtroom Program, but she went off script to gloat about the conviction of comedian and convicted rapist Bill Cosby.
“Bill Cosby. Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!” she shouted. Allred also held a sign on the red carpet prior to the show that read the same.
The members of the audience were far from thrilled with her pronouncement as they booed the famed attorney off the stage.
It is tough to know why the audience booed her. In the year of the #MeToo movement one would think that the conviction of a serial rapist and abuser of women would be celebrated by the crowd.
But, as is frequently the case with the Hollywood elite, they must have not liked the idea of the finger of shame pointing at them.
With the outing of Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K., Sen. Al Franken, James Franco, Kevin Spacey, Richard Dreyfuss, Steven Seagal, Russell Simmons, James Toback and others as sexual predators, the #MeToo movement has not been kind to Hollywood. It has exposed the seedy, and often abusive, side of the entertainment industry and it appears that the Hollywood crowd does not like it.
On the other hand, it could also be that the crowd, like much of America, has grown weary of Allred taking her victims cases and making them about her and increasing her celebrity.
From the responses on Twitter it looks like the majority of people watching sided with those who booed her.
