Kate Winslet became the target after an article she did with Vogue and comments she made regarding co-parenting:
"People go, 'Oh, my God! Those poor children! They must have gone through so much.' Says who?" Winslet told Vogue. "They've always been with me. They don't go from pillar to post; they're not flown here and there with nannies. That's never happened. My kids don't go back and forth; none of this 50/50 time with the mums and dads – my children live with me; that is it. That is it!"
Fast forward to the holiday season, and Fathers4Justice (F4J), a U.K.-based campaign group for equal parenting rights, used Winslet in a Christmas advertisement.
“We are running this advert as part of a campaign to highlight the sensitive issue of four million children waking up on Christmas Day without their father," F4J told the U.K.'s Mirror. "It is clear from what Kate says that she does not support ‘shared parenting.’”
Her ex-husband even came to her defense saying that the groups have no knowledge of their parenting circumstances. What do you think of her views? If she was the main parent during the marriage, is it wrong of her to have these same views after it's over?
