Judge Judy recently hit back at critics of her earning nearly $50 million a year.

The television star, whose real name is Judy Sheindlin, earns a stunning $47 million per year, and she thinks that might not sit well with some people. She also really doesn’t seem to care.

Judge Judy told TMZ, “Since we never question what guys earn, why would we question what I earn?”

Serious question here. Who doesn’t think Judge Judy isn’t worth every penny of $47 million? Hell, I’d pay her $75 million if she asked for it. The woman dominates day time television. She’s so good that Jim Harbaugh wanted her on the supreme court.

I don’t want to call this a fake controversy, but I haven’t seen much of any complaining about her getting paid like a king. I watch the internet like a hawk, and I haven’t seen anything. I want everybody to get paid. I want men to get paid, I want women to get paid, I want young people to get paid and I really don’t care about anything else. Don’t hate the people who gave her so much money. Hate yourself for not getting a ton of money. There’s nobody to blame but yourself. Props to Judy Judy for being able to make it rain.
