Kristen was initially reported to be talking about Oscars diversity

Variety have apologised to Kristen Stewart and their readers, after falsely reporting that her comments about gender equality in Hollywood were actually referring to the issue of diversity at the Oscars this year. 

Kristen told those complaining about a lack of equality in the film and television industry to: 'Go do something about it', a statement that Variety originally implied was about the #OscarsSoWhite campaign - which has lead to the likes of Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, Spike Lee and others boycotting the 2016 Academy Awards due to a lack of diversity in nominations.

K-Stew admitted that she's 'bored' by the ongoing gender debate, and that she reckons people should be more proactive instead of just moaning about the industry's lack of equal pay among actors and actresses. 

"Instead of sitting around and complaining about that, do something," she told Variety in an interview at the Sundance Film Festival.

"Go write something, go do something. And that's easy to say. Like, f**k, it's hard to get movies made. It's a huge luxury. Who gets to just make movies? But that subject is just so prevalently everywhere right now, and it's boring."

Hmmm. Not sure if we'd say that keeping the subject of gender equality in the public domain could ever be considered 'boring' - but hey, what do we know*. 

*we know that it's not right - men and women should be paid the same, come on K-Stew, don't be a dick. 

HOWEVER, things kicked off after Variety said the comments were about the Oscars diversity row, and the publication has since apologised, after the entire internet turned on Kristen for her remarks. 

They said in a correction: 

"Comments made in a videotaped interview Monday with actress Kristen Stewart about gender equality in Hollywood at the Sundance Film Festival were erroneously labeled on Variety.com in a way that suggested she was addressing issues pertaining to diversity. Variety regrets the error and apologises for any confusion."

What do you make of all this - think her comments are still not really OK, or think she's justified in her opinion? Let us know with a tweet over @Sugarscape.
