'OITNB' Star Matt McGorry Destroys Radio Show For Its Fat-Shaming Segment

Matt McGorry is basically the white, cisgendered, male feminist spy women send behind enemy lines to help fight for equality.

Like any spy worth his or her weight in black spandex and foreign currency, McGorry never stops fighting, even when he's Ubering.

In the wee hours of Saturday morning, the “How to Get Away with Murder” and "Orange Is the New Black" actor hopped on Twitter and called out a radio show on 98.7 FM for a sexist segment, in which a female caller is asked a series of questions and listeners guess, based on her answers, whether she is fat or skinny.

The segment, aptly titled “Fat Chick/Skinny Chick,” is typical fare for “The Woody Show.”

Unnerved by the show's content, McGorry unleashed hellfire on their sexist asses.

McGorry referenced a 2015 incident in which student Allison Ficht was apparently mocked for complaining to the show's producer and told to make “bacon and eggs” because, you know, women are constantly making breakfast food in the workplace.

In response to McGorry's accusatory tweets, the radio show questioned how he could have possibly heard the show in a cab at night, as “The Woody Show” broadcasts in the am.

McGorry wasn't born Friday and tweeted a video to prove it.

YAS. PROOF. ALWAYS.

In the video, McGorry chats with the cab driver about the sexist segment before asking him to change the station.

The people behind the show attempted to use their prior support of animal and LGBTQ rights to prove, though they have zero respect for women, they're not so bad.

McGorry and other Twitter users reminded the radio show all causes aren't mutually exclusive.

“The Woody Show” deleted every tweet questioning the validity of McGorry's accusations, but the 30-year-old WASN'T BORN FRIDAY, YOU GUYS, DAMN!

IDK IF PEOPLE STILL SAY “BOOM, ROASTED!” OR IF THAT WAS SOMETHING MY BEST FRIEND'S DAD MADE UP, BUT...

~*BOOOOOOOOOM ROOOOOOASTEDDDDDD*~

“The Woody Show” hasn't responded, but at least it's finally learned, unlike radio, the internet is forever.
