Kaley Cuoco Delivers Mock 'Apology' to Feminist Critics at People's Choice Awards

Kaley Cuoco, star of the hit CBS comedy Big Bang Theory, continued to poke radical feminists Wednesday night at the People's Choice Awards. 

While presenting the award for "Favorite Comedic Movie Actress," her fellow presented Josh Gad asked her, “Kaley, are you sure you want to do this category given your anti-feminism stance?”

She responded, “Yeah, I have to. It’s part of my ‘apology tour’ and now, here are the nominees…”

If you'll remember, Cuoco is under fire from radical feminists for making this comment about feminism in a recent interview:  

It's not really something I think about. Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around ... I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality. I cook for [my husband] five nights a week: It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that. I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I'm so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him.

After an onslaught of criticism she quickly responded:  

"In my Redbook article, some people have taken offense to my comments regarding feminism- if any of you are In the "biz" you are well aware of how words can be taken out of context. I'm completely blessed and grateful that strong women have paved the way for my success along with many others. I apologize if anyone was offended. Anyone that truly knows me, knows my heart and knows what I meant."

Despite the apology, the snarky response last night suggests Cuoco sees through the ridiculous nature of the political correctness she's burdened by in her industry.
