Hollywood actress Rosanna Arquette caused quite a stir on social media Wednesday, when she publicly declared her "disgust" and "shame" over being born "white and privileged."

What are the details?

"I'm sorry I was born white and privileged," the progressive activist tweeted. "It disgusts me. And I feel so much shame."

Arquette was roundly criticized for her statement, with several followers pointing out that she is welcome to rid herself of any pesky wealth by divvying it out to black or brown people. Some suggested she could change how she identifies racially, others said therapy might help, and a few recommended she simply sober up.

A healthy number of respondents also accused Arquette of virtue signaling by trying to display her politically-correct wokeness.

Who is Rosanna Arquette?

The Washington Examiner explained that Arquette is the daughter of a film producer, and two of her siblings, David Arquette and Patricia Arquette, are also part of the Hollywood elite.

During her long history as an actress in movies and television, Rosanna, 59, notably appeared in Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction," and the 1996 film "Crash."

The New York native has an estimated net worth of $9 million, and according to Breitbart, she "is certainly no stranger to outrageous statements."

Just two days ago, Arquette posted a picture of herself kneeling before several American flags while holding up a peace sign. She wrote in the caption, "I'll never stand for the flag again."
