Actress Tina Fey is grateful she lives in New York City because she doesn’t have to deal with Hollywood’s double standards.

The former “30 Rock” star was a guest presenter at the Academy Awards but she quickly grew irritated with all of the messages of social activism her fellow celebrities were trying to convey, reported Contactmusic.

Fey felt it was hypocritical to hear about topics including “corporate greed” from a room full of “rich people”, while she was also just overwhelmed by the sheer number of differing issues brought up at the Los Angeles ceremony.

“I’m so glad I live here (in New York City) because halfway through (the Oscars), I was like, ‘This is some real Hollywood...’,” she told radio host Howard Stern.

“Everyone’s telling me what to do. People are yelling at me about rape and corporate greed but really it’s climate change. I was like, ‘Guys, pick a lane. Like we’re going to fix everything tonight?’ And also, like, ‘You’re all rich. Why are you yelling at me about corporate greed?’”
