Russell Brand Called Out For Sexist Parenting
Russell Brand says his wife is better at parenting, so he doesn’t help much.
The comedian is being called out for his ‘sexist’ parenting style after admitting his wife does just about everything for their two daughters.
Brand called parenting ‘exhausting.’ during a recent interview with ‘The Sunday Times Magazine.’
While he says he’ll help out by dropping his kids off at day care, he claims he is not good at changing diapers and making sure his daughters eat.
That is work better left to their mom.
‘Laura does it all. It turns out she is extremely well versed in the nuances and complexities of child-rearing,” Brand told the magazine. “She wouldn’t go away for 24 hours. She respects and cares for their safety too much.”
Now some people online are now calling on the comedian to take on more responsibility at home.
One person tweeted: ‘Laura is better at it because she has no choice. Someone has to step up and take responsibility for keeping your child alive and nurturing them into a well rounded, clean.. and fed human being.’
Someone else tweeted: ‘Lucky for Russell Brand that his partner just so happens to be good at the organizational stuff of being a parent, like keeping it alive.’
