In this latest installment of a special, ongoing WYSK series we call “Major Media Outlets Who Still Think It’s OK To Play The Let’s Pit Women Against Women Comparison Game,” we introduce you to Dani Fernandez. The writer and comedian took to Twitter yesterday to call out a TODAY Show segment that asked “Who Is Younger?” while running side by side photos of various accomplished female celebrities with their respective ages slugged underneath. Here’s how she answered their ageist, sexist, useless, and utterly ridiculous question.
Some of Dani’s followers chimed in, with Twitter user J Ryan completely nailing what’s so wrong with this TODAY Show segment, especially in the year 2016.
Why the producers who continue to put this nonsense on air don’t see the problem and how they are contributing to it is a real mind-bender.
