'Isn’t it just time for women to run the planet?' Will Ferrell tells Hollywood men 'are not doing so good' as leaders

Actor Will Ferrell told a group of mostly women that it is time for them to take over the world when he gave opening remarks for the Women in Entertainment Gala hosted by outlet the Hollywood Reporter.

Ferrell likely earned a spot at the gala because he co-owns a production company focused on female-led television and movie productions, Gloria Sanchez Productions, founded in 2014 as a division of his existing production company.

"This is such a wonderful event where we honor and support and continue to fight for women in all facets of the entertainment world," Ferrell began from the podium. "Forget about the entertainment world. Isn’t it just time for women to run the planet?" the actor asked.

Ferrell's pandering immediately received applause as he continued.

"I mean, I'm not just trying to placate you, I swear. But I don't know what else to do because we men we've been running the show since, what, 10,000 B.C.; something like that? And we're not doing so good. So please, can you guys just take over, can you? I think it's time. Sorry, I'm getting sidetracked."

His words were a far cry from a comedic sketch starring Ferrell and actor Will Forte in 2011. As Hollywood in Toto noted, the video featured a variety of men apologizing for fantasizing about women and oppressing them with their thoughts.

"Throughout time male historians have diminished your role in world events, even retroactively revising the gender of famous historical figures," the hilarious sketch explained. "Today we acknowledge that several of Jesus' apostles and Benjamin Franklin were most likely women."

Ferrell went on to plead with actress Kerry Washington to run for president, joking that the gala could start a GoFundMe page to raise money for her campaign.

The "Anchorman" actor noted that Washington would receive the "equity in entertainment award" in recognition of her work "amplifying the voices of underrepresented communities in the entertainment industry and beyond."

Washington's acceptance speech did not disappoint in terms of offering woke, race-based, and sometimes communist talking points.

"The battle for equity is going to require that we step into the center of our lives and and of our stories," she began.

"That as women, as people of color, as members of the LGBTQ+ community, as people with differently abled bodies from marginalized religions, that we then also be willing to uplift others and to be supporting characters in their stories so that they can be the lead characters in their own lives too," Washington went on.

The actress then dove into a vehement explanation of why equality is not preferred over "justice," which she described as "leveling the ground and ripping the f**king fence down!"

"Justice is about dismantling the systems that prevent us from getting to the other side of our greatness!" she declared.
