As the filmmakers and stars of Wonder Woman celebrate the movie breaking box office records, other are not quite so enamoured by DC's latest superhero offering.

The titular Wonder Woman is an Amazonian superhero, played by Israeli actress Gal Gadot, yet Fox News hosts and guest feel she's not American enough.

Someone might need to buy them an atlas.

EW reports that guest Dion Baia on Your World with Neil Cavuto said, "I think nowadays, sadly, money trumps patriotism.  Especially recently, I personally feel like we're not realy very patriotic, the country, in a certain sense.  They want these movies to succeed internationally, so they're going to dial back."

The fictional character's costume came under fire for being red, blue, and gold, instead of red, white and blue.

"I think the Hollywood aspect, we see this time and time again, it’s cool to hate America these days,” said Mike Gunzelman who then advised viewers to "just go see Baywatch".
