Karrine Steffans broke up with U.S. TV pundit Bill Maher. So what does she do? She trash-talks him in Vibe magazine and the New York Post.

Fine. Trash him if you want, Karrine, but don’t bring us into it! She says of Maher, “Bill wants someone he can put down in an argument… I might as well have been a Muslim woman with my head wrapped, walking 10 paces behind my man. I couldn’t be ‘Bill Maher’s girlfriend’ any more – not when I’m Karrine Steffans . . . best-selling author.”

Well, Karrine, you may have been smart enough to dump Bill Maher, but you’re not smart enough to know that Muslim women don’t walk 10 paces behind their men. That’s just a stereotype.

And I’m not even going to touch the “head wrapped” comment. What are we, mummies?

Steffans’ comments imply that Muslim women are not only subservient to our men, but somehow lesser than our men. Pfff.
