The Marilyn Monroe biopic has been the subject of considerable criticism, for filming Marilyn's death scene where the real-life Marilyn actually died, depicting a fictional sexual assault scene with JFK, and for showing a CGI talking fetus asking not to be "hurt" — and that's not even touching the controversy surrounding the director's comments before the movie was released.

In a new TikTok, Emily began, "I’ve been hearing a lot about this Marilyn Monroe movie Blonde , which I haven’t seen yet, but I’m not surprised to hear that it’s yet another movie fetishizing female pain, even in death."

"We love to fetishize female pain. Look at Amy Winehouse, look at Britney Spears, look at the way we obsess over Diana’s death, the way we obsess over dead girls and serial killers. Watch any CSI episode, and it’s like this crazy fetishization of female pain and death."

"I think as women, I mean I can say for myself for sure that I’ve learned how to fetishize my own pain and my own hurt in life, so that it feels like something that can be tended to, that’s kinda sexy, and like, you know: 'I’m like this, oh, fucked up girl, whatever.'"

"But I was thinking about it, and you know what’s kinda hard to fetishize? Anger. Anger is hard to fetishize. So, I have a proposal. I think we all need to be a little more pissed off. I’m gonna be in my bitch era — 2022, baby, is my bitch era. This is, I think we should all be in our bitch era,'" she added.

Emily then responded to one comment that read, "'Blurred Lines' was terrible for feminism, so her feminist take feels very fake" by lip-synching to the Lana Del Rey song "Ride" — specifically, the line that goes "I'm tired of feeling like I'm fucking crazy."

"READ MY BOOK and stop telling women they're fake feminists ITS INSANE," she added in the caption, referencing her book of essays My Body.
