(Newser) – History is on Jessica Alba's side in her ongoing feud with Bill O'Reilly, MSNBC reports. After the Fox anchor ridiculed Alba and called her a "pinhead" for apparently confusing Sweden with Switzerland by telling a reporter to "be neutral, be Sweden about it," Alba fired back with a blog post pointing out that Sweden is also a neutral country. She added a link to Wikipedia in case O'Reilly was still confused.

"Mr. Bill O'Reilly and some really classy sites (ie, TMZ) insinuated I was dumb by claiming Sweden was a neutral country," Alba blogged. "I appreciate the fact that he is a news anchor and that gossip sites are inundated with intelligent reporting, but seriously people, it's so sad that you think the only neutral country during WWII was Switzerland.”
