Fox News star Greg Gutfeld dedicated a portion of "The Five" Tuesday to bashing "potato-faced actor" Mark Ruffalo, who he called "a racist" for sharing a petition demanding MSNBC stop hiring white conservatives.
"Potato-faced actor Mark Ruffalo is demanding MSNBC stop hiring white people. He actually tweeted a petition saying, 'Tell MSNBC, NBC News to stop the white conservative hiring spree.' The petition implores don't promote white wing hate," Gutfeld said of the Marvel star. "How cowardly to cast divergent opinion as hateful. I guess they know their leftie dribble can't compete so they smear other voices as evil to eliminate actual diversity of ideas."
Ruffalo, who will be back in action as the Hulk in "Thor: Ragnarok" in November, tweeted a petition Saturday to "stop the white conservative hiring spree."
Gutfeld said he was confused as to which NBC hosts Ruffalo was referencing, name dropping George Will, Nicole Wallace, and Greta Van Susteren sarcastically calling them the “Real alt-right goons,” Ruffalo is upset with.
"Look, Mark's not that bright, so he masks his insecurities in social justice tantrums," Gutfeld added.
"But isn't it time to ask Hollywood to stop hiring white actors like him? Seriously, why doesn't Ruffalo accelerate diversity by rejecting roles and allow people of color to replace him. This guy has been in like 70 movies. Ruffalo's own selfish desire to saturate the marketplace makes him an obstacle for diversity. He's racist! In fact, all those roles were opportunities for gays and lesbians, men and women of color that he took for himself… he's a selfish old white male and Hollywood should stop hiring him.”
To end his rant, Gutfeld said he would help Ruffalo circulate his petition if he had the time. "Unlike Mark Ruffalo, I have a life."
