Rachel Brosnahan had the best response when fans called Mrs. Maisel a “terrible mom.”
Earlier this week, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star, 28, shut down critics on Twitter who dissed her character, Miriam or “Midge,” for ignoring her two children, Ethan (played by twins Nunzio Pascale and Matteo Pascale) and Esther (played by twins Cadence Magura and Kiera Magura).
It all started when one user questioned Midge’s intentions in season two of the Amazon series, claiming the writers are making her a low-key antagonist. It read, “I agree, and I GET what the show/writer’s/etc. are trying to convey BUT it doesn’t change the fact that as a viewer we can’t sit and say to the tv ‘love her, but she’s a terrible mom!!’”
When Brosnahan caught wind of the discussion, she politely explained that the only reason Midge is receiving criticism is because she’s a woman.
