Alison Pill, star of HBO’s The Newsroom, tweeted a topless picture of herself yesterday, claiming it was an accident. In her next tweet she confessed, “…My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet… Apologies.”
But today a source close to the Canadian actress revealed that her topless tweet was part of Newsroom creator Aaron Sorkin’s concerted effort to prove he writes ditzy women exactly as they exist. He also wanted television critics to know that yes he is actually imbued with God-like qualities to know what the future holds.
The pilot episode showed how easy it was to accidentally mass e-mail private information and the world knows all your business,” Sorkin said. “And the minute I spotted Alison, I knew this would be happening so yes, I can predict and make the future happen. There’s no misogeny there, it’s just a simple fact of life.”
The target of much criticism of late, Sorkin has been tagged by critics as “mysogynistic.” In retaliation, the source reports, Sorkin enlisted Pill as a “scantily clad warrior” in his attempt to illustrate that even the most educated, driven, and accomplished women have legitimate difficulties discerning the difference between the buttons labeled “delete” and “tweet.”
