Award-winning actress and outspoken conservative Patricia Heaton slammed a tweet by the progressive Women’s March on Wednesday that shamed white women for purportedly thwarting their chances of a blue wave in the midterm elections.

“There needs to be accountability and an honest reckoning,” the Women’s March declared. “There’s a lot of work to do, white women. A lot of learning. A lot of growing. We want to do it with you. Stay tuned.”

The comments were in response to a derogatory tweet by Above the Law editor Elie Mystal, complaining about white women voting for Republicans Brian Kemp, Ted Cruz and Ron DeSantis during the election Tuesday.

Ms. Heaton fired back in a tweet Wednesday night, saying “women of all kinds” are rejecting the Democratic Party because of its stance on issues like abortion.

The reaction to Ms. Heaton’s tweet thus far has been largely positive.
