Is Chivalry "Dead"? Pregnant Actress Not Offered Train Seat

Is chivalry "dead"? Pregnant actress Olivia Wilde thinks so.

According to her now-viral train ride Tweet, Wilde was standing on a crowded New York City subway train on Wednesday. She said despite her visibly big baby belly, no one offered to give up a seat for her.

She Tweeted: "NBD (no big deal), able-bodied [subway] riders who won't give your seat to a GIANT preggo. I'll just stand riiiiight next to your head and pray I go into labor."

Wilde received some backlash. One Twitter follower wrote: "1. I didn't tell u to get pregnant. 2. Get an Uber (you can afford it). 3. I paid the same amt (amount) as you for the subway ride."

Wilde is engaged to actor Jason Sudeikis, and they announced in April they are expecting their second child.
