Meghan McCain Puts Glenn Beck in his Place

May 16, 2011 4:07 AM

The Daily Beast writer blasted conservative radio host Glenn Beck for his misogynistic rant about her body.


In an open letter to Glenn Beck posted on The Daily Beast, Meghan McCain, also a New York Times bestelling author, creator of and daughter of Republican U.S. Senator John McCain, fired back with great aplomb against the vomiting sounds, fat jokes and suggestions that she wear a burqa Beck made on his radio show after seeing her feign nudity in a PSA ad promoting skin cancer awareness. She writes:


While we’re on the subject of you vomiting on air, maybe we should have a little talk. Clearly you have a problem with me, and possibly women in general, but the truth is, it’s 2011 and I heard your show on Fox was canceled. Isn’t that an indication that the era of the shock-jock pundit is over? Don’t you think that’s a sign you should be pulling it back a little? I mean, if you’re too conservative and outrageous for Fox, that should tell you something. There really is no need to make something like my participation in a skin-cancer PSA into a sexist rant about my weight and physical appearance, because I’m going to let you in on a little secret, Glenn: you are the only one who looks bad in this scenario, and at the end of the day you have helped me generate publicity for my skin-cancer PSA, a cause that I feel quite passionate about.


Meghan McCain, we at Empirella applaud you.
