Last month, Emily Blunt became a naturalized U.S. citizen, and she's already learning that some Americans really don't get her British sense of humor!
The Sicario star opened up about her newfound citizenship in the states at the Toronto International Film Festival, quipping:
"I became an American citizen recently and that night we decided to watch the Republican debate, and I thought 'This was a terrible mistake. What have I done?'"
Of course, the conservative anchors over at Fox & Friends didn't take kindly to her obvious jokes, and they even went as far to say the star should leave Hollywood!

On Tuesday's show, Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and Anna Kooiman slammed the actress for her remarks that she "liked being British!" An offended Kooiman said:
"You know what? Why don't you leave Hollywood, Calif., and let some American women take on the roles that you're getting because the Americans are watching your movies and lining your pockets."
Ah, the classic "go back to where you came from" response. Very refreshing!
The co-hosts also called out Blunt's comments about how it was "typically American" that she was asked to renounce Queen Elizabeth II!
Is the Fox & Friends team making a fuss for no reason, or were the actress's comments a bit too… Blunt? (LOLz we HAD to!) Watch the full clip (below)!
