Singer Lily Allen has responded to the BBC pay revelations, which show the corporation’s top male presenters are paid more that their female colleagues, saying:
‘Women are literally better at everything than men, why do you think we are so oppressed ?’
‘But that doesn’t mean that I believe men shouldn’t have equal rights’.
Responding to criticism on twitter, Ms. Allen said:
‘OK, men are better at selling things people don’t need and starting wars. Women are better at humane things’.
These comments come after the BBC published a list of their highest paid presenters, which showed Chris Evans was on £2.2 million, while Claudia Winkleman was on £450,000, leading to accusations of a gender bias.
