Reba McEntire has been slated to be KFC’s first-ever female Colonel Sanders, so cancel the marches and stop calling for pay transparency: sexism is officially over.
“I’m Colonel Sanders. The same as always: absolutely nothing’s changed,” the famed country singer croons in her new commercial. “Please ignore any likeness to famous country singers. I’m definitely not a woman.”
Consider the patriarchy smashed. At least, that’s the joke everyone made on Twitter as soon as they heard the surprising news.
While some are applauding and cracking up at the commercial, a mass of others are outraged that a woman is stepping into the conventionally male role.
