Emily Blunt Told To 'Leave Hollywood' By 'Fox And Friends' Hosts Who Don't Get Her Humor

"Let some American women take on the roles that you're getting."

They say the British have a different sense of humor, and it may have been lost on the hosts of "Fox and Friends." 

Actress Emily Blunt recently became an American citizen and she's been using the experience as a talking point in a number of interviews. Recently, she joked to The Hollywood Reporter that after watching the GOP debate she thought that becoming a citizen was "a terrible mistake." 

The comment, which was much more of a dig at the Republican presidential candidates than anything else, was just too much for "Fox and Friends" co-host Anna Kooiman, who suggested that Blunt "leave Hollywood."

"Let some American women take on the roles that you're getting, because Americans are watching your movies and lining your pockets," Kooiman said. 

Co-host Brian Kilmeade responded by recalling comments Blunt made when she was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last week, in which she also playfully joked about the citizenship ceremony and having to renounce her Queen, but not really mean it -- which she said was "just so perfect."

That sealed it for co-host Steve Doocy, who shot back, "You know what Emily Blunt just did? She just Dixie Chicked herself. She has alienated half the country, that now will think twice about going to one of her movies." 

But did she really? This totally endearing clip of her singing "Yankee Doodle" while dressed as the Statue of Liberty might suggest otherwise:
