It always makes us laugh when liberals hoist themselves on their own metaphorical petard, but this one is especially great.
Remember the Ridley Scott movie that was reshot after Kevin Spacey‚Äôs past sexual misconduct came to light? The film,¬† ‚ÄúAll The Money In The World,‚ÄĚ also starred Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg and those two had to come in to do reshoots with Spacey‚Äôs replacement, Christopher Plummer. But it‚Äôs just been reported that Wahlberg was paid over a million dollars more for his time than castmate Williams:
On the day after display of female power at the #goldenglobes, I learned that there was an egregious pay gap between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg for the All the Money in the World reshoot. Did they think this wouldn't come out? Unacceptable #TimesUp

I started this last night and now it has been confirmed by others. Michelle Williams paid under 1,000 and Mark Wahlberg paid 1.5m. Williams was told they were all donating their time for the reshoots. THIS IS AN EGREGIOUS GENDER PAY GAP. #paymichelle https://t.co/edORyoNkgf https://t.co/red4f2LQF4

Which means liberals in Hollywood are angry at other liberals in Hollywood for paying a liberal woman in Hollywood less than a liberal male actor in Hollywood for the same amount of work:
Please go see Michelle's performance in All The Money in The World. She's a brilliant Oscar nominated Golden Globe winning actress. She has been in the industry for 20 yrs. She deserves more than 1% of her male costar' s salary. https://t.co/HIniew6lf7

This is so messed up that it is almost hard to believe. Almost. This is how this business works. I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane. https://t.co/RsunBlOeCk

And it looks like the liberal director of the film lied to other liberals in Hollywood about how much he was paying the liberal actors for their time. From HuffPo:
When asked about the reshoot costs in December, Scott told USA Today that they were ‚Äúnot as expensive as you think‚ÄĚ because ‚Äúeveryone did it for nothing.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThey all came in free,‚ÄĚ Scott said. ‚ÄúChristopher had to get paid. But Michelle, no. Me, no. I wouldn‚Äôt do that.‚ÄĚ
Now, there‚Äôs obviously an argument to be made that Wahlberg should get paid more for his time:
That doesn't matter. Mark Walhberg is an A-List star and people will go see movies because he's in them. Nobody is going to the theater just to see Michelle Williams. That's the reality of the business. No sense crying about it. https://t.co/veWZiELPnI

But, again ‚Ä¶ this is a bunch of liberals who love to lecture us and what‚Äôs right while in reality, they‚Äôre the ones not practicing what they preach:
But it's not FAAAAIIIIIIIIIIR.

Oh, and we can ad the liberal agency into the mix as both Williams and Wahlberg are repped by WME:
This is shameful. And both Wahlberg and Williams are repped by the same agency: WME‚Ä¶.Exclusive: Wahlberg paid $1.5M for 'All the Money' reshoot, Williams got less than $1,000 https://t.co/Ig59pht7M8

So, Wahlberg‚Äôs agent was better than Williams‚Äô?
Her agent should get fired and his should get a raise. https://t.co/Vk1Jl8W2AB

That would work.
