Olivia Wilde Has Savage Message For People Who Don’t Offer Pregnant Women Seats
Famous or not, when a pregnant woman is uncomfortably standing on the subway, YOU LET HER SIT.
I don’t care if you’ve spent the same amount of money as her on a metro card or you’ve just spent an entire day running a marathon.
It’s common curtesy to let a childbearing female sit down on a train, or on any fast-moving crowded form of transportation.
This unspoken rule of thumb was recently ignored when a crowded car full of subway riders snubbed pregnant Olivia Wilde by not offering her a seat.
Were these people made of stone? I know NYC makes you a little colder, but DAMN.
Wilde didn’t take the rudeness lightly and sarcastically vented on Twitter about the bizarre incident.
NBD, able-bodied riders who won’t give your seat to a GIANT preggo. I’ll just stand riiiiight next to your head and pray I go into labor.

Most of her fans were outraged by the audacity of the subway riders and had Wilde’s back — which is probably sore from standing.
Others, though, were rude AF.
According to E! News, a not-so-understanding Twitter user replied to the 32-year-old actress and basically shamed her for being pregnant, saying,
1. I didn’t tell u to get pregnant 2. Get an Uber (you can afford it) 3. I paid the same amt as you for the subway ride.
HA. OK. COOL.
This person probably didn’t realize how sassy a pregnant woman can get — or, any woman, for that matter — until Olivia slammed him with this hilarious tweet.
Tell ’em, Olivia.
Next time you see a pregnant woman standing on the subway, give her your damn seat. Because that’s what decent human beings do.
