"This is sexist and not funny," Milano tweets after Vanity Fair shares video of editors giving former Secretary of State New Year's resolution ideas.
Although the video was released last Saturday, the backlash picked up full steam on Wednesday, becoming a top trend on Twitter with over 28,000 tweets at the time of this writing. Arquette and Milano -- two of the actresses leading of the #MeToo and gender pay gap movements in Hollywood -- did not enjoy editors of Vanity Fair's Hive suggesting Clinton take up knitting or go for more walks in thew woods.
"Hey STOP TELLING WOMEN WHAT THE F-CK THEY SHOULD DO OR CAN DO. Get over your mommy issues," Arquette tweeted Tuesday.
"This is sexist and not funny. Not a good combo," Milano tweeted more recently.
Other suggestions for the former presidential nominee included writing a sequel to her memoir about the 2016 election, change some of her autocorrect settings, teach students how to properly breathe and even giving improv comedy a shot.
"Literally anything that will keep you from running again," one of the editors featured in the video said.
Maybe it's time for Hillary Clinton to take up a new hobby in 2018 pic.twitter.com/sbE78rA5At— VANITY FAIR (@VanityFair) December 23, 2017

Six New Year’s Resolutions for Vanity Fair’s Hive Editors: 1) Don’t make videos on Ambien 2) Show some fucking respect to the 1st female Presidential nominee of a major political party & the former 1st lady & Secretary of State 3) Learn what funny is 4) Fuck off 5) see 4 6) see 5— Caissie St.Onge (@Caissie) December 27, 2017
Maybe it’s time for Vanity Fair to fuck off & mind their own damn business. https://t.co/eiNxQbQr3N— Sarah Lerner (@SarahLerner) December 26, 2017
Hillary Clinton is the most qualified person ever to run for president. She literally has a 50 year resume, 108 Million votes to her resume, $3B dollars to donation fundraising for Democrats, she earned 4M more votes than Bernie Sanders and 4M more than TRUMP!— Mr. Weeks (@MrDane1982) December 27, 2017
Vanity Fair STFU https://t.co/qcq1CEdi5r
Maybe it's time for Vanity Fair to give up the magazine business. Go to hell. Worst of all? It's criminally not funny.— Don't wash your pits in the river of Sacred Tears (@MaestraOogway) December 26, 2017
Honestly! No one thought this was a mean-spirited and poorly thought out idea? And no one noticed that it is sexist? What were you thinking?— Crystal Fey (@gypsywagon4me) December 27, 2017

Yeah, we will be cancelling our subscription. Better to sink that money into #OnwardTogether anyway.— JeremySnohomish (@JeremyPack1973) December 26, 2017
Seriously?? You create this trash about the only woman to be nominated by a major political party and go on to win the National Vote without colluding with a hostile foreign power. Hillary is far more popular and loved than many are aware. You will lose many supporters from this. pic.twitter.com/uH1u7PUlDM— Onward Together Revolution (@VIRGOMAN2006) December 25, 2017
Your Vanity is failing you, VF! You wish you were as influential as she @HillaryClinton is! In a moment in history that probably we need more women leading than ever, you try to make a joke out of her? Why don’t you do it with the other male candidates of both parties? https://t.co/4CGALQjYqa— José Andrés (@chefjoseandres) December 26, 2017
You guys don't get it. Long after Trump is gone and elections come and go, people will still remember Hillary for her mark on history for women. But ALSO people will always remember something sour about you every time they see an ad or your cover. As sour as @PapaJohns— lorenna cleary (@bipolarlioness) December 26, 2017
