Warren binge-watched a show in which women are often referred to as ‘hoes,’ ‘bitches,’ or ‘ass.’
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spent election night binge-watching HBO’s “Ballers” with her husband, Bruce Mann, instead of watching coverage of what was expected to be the election of America’s first female president, Hillary Clinton.
Warren revealed how she spent election night 2016 in her new book, scheduled to be released April 18. NTK Network obtained an early copy of the book.
“Ballers,” for those unfamiliar with the show, stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a retired NFL player, turned financial manager obsessed with making money. The show depicts the lavish lifestyle of NFL players, often featuring scenes of wild parties that feature scantily-clad women and drug use.
Slate’s review of “Ballers” was critical of the show’s treatment of women:
“Women who are referred to as “hoes” or “bitches” or “ass” and span the full spectrum of stereotypes: Nagging Wife, Vindictive Mistress, Stalker Groupie. Even after four episodes, you’re hard-pressed to remember the name of a single female character.”
Warren, however, calls “Ballers,” a “terrific” show in her new book, “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class.”
It seems odd that Warren would admit to liking a show like “Ballers,” considering her book is about the plight of America’s working class. “Ballers” glorifies the lifestyles of the wealthy and powerful, all while portraying women as objects.
Warren might find her enjoyment of “Ballers” problematic if she decides to run for president in 2020. It seems doubtful that women voters will support “Ballers'” representation of women.
