Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle inspired online hostility — and some approval — after saying that young female voters don’t have the life experience to serve on juries or to vote, and they should just go back to their dating websites.
The remarks came during a discussion on Fox News' "The Five" about how people tend to become more conservative as they get older. Guilfoyle chimed in, saying, "It’s the same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea. They don’t get it. They’re not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortgage, kids, community, crime, education, healthcare. They’re like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world.”
When her co-host Bob Beckel said young women have "every right in the world" to be on juries, Guilfoyle added, "I didn’t say they shouldn’t be. I just think, excuse them so they can go back on Tinder and Match.com."
Though her remarks were aimed at jury selection, Guilfoyle was interjecting them into a conversation about voters, and many took it as an implication that young women shouldn’t vote until they’re older and more conservative.
On Twitter, Guilfoyle said she would tackle the subject again on "The Five" Thursday.
The online community took on Guilfoyle’s comments, from both sides:
