People Are Annoyed At This Photo Of Jenny McCarthy Sprawled On The Emmys Red Carpet

HuffPost Entertainment 1 month ago

It seems that making mistakes is pretty exhausting work.

On Monday, Jenny McCarthy posted a photo to Twitter of herself sprawled on the Emmys red carpet after wrapping her pre-show coverage for Fox on Sunday.

“Thank you so much for watching!” McCarthy wrote alongside the photo. “Appreciate the [love] and support so much. ... And now I sleep.”

The tweet was presumably meant to be cute, but some on Twitter didn’t find it so amusing ― especially since the “Masked Singer” judge had butchered an interview on the red carpet with Christina Applegate, who was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on Netflix’s “Dead to Me.” (Phoebe Waller-Bridge would end up winning that category for “Fleabag.”)

During their awkward exchange, not only did McCarthy, 46, coyly attempt to make Applegate, 47, appear much older than she is, but she also asked her how it felt to be “nominated for your own show” for the first time. McCarthy apparently didn’t know that Applegate had been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series twice before, for ABC’s “Samantha Who?”

With this disaster of an interview fresh in their minds, people on Twitter sounded off at McCarthy. Many made references to her 2008 book “Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism,” in which she argued that vaccines weakened her son’s immune system and sparked his autism. There is essentially no scientific basis to the idea that vaccines lead to autism, in spite of what McCarthy and others have said.
