The ultimate ‘don’t’ dress
Vice President Kamala Harris, who had previously received rave reviews for her fashion choices (unlike previous vice presidents) received criticism because of some of her recent clothing choices.
In recent days, she has been photographed wearing Dolce & Gabbana attire while taking the oath of Finance Minister Janet Yellen and receiving her second COVID-19 vaccination.
While Harris has promised to make “racial justice” a priority, the Italian fashion house has been accused of racism and politically wrongdoing since at least 2007. Among other things, the company says it goes against the idea of gay parents, having used earrings with an image. a colonial black woman, has announced a campaign modeled after brandishing a knife and suffering a knife wound, and has made a social media video with a Chinese woman trying to eat spaghetti, pizza and cannoli with chopsticks.
Vittoria Vignone, who runs the website Kamala’s Closet, suggested the choice was “very reckless” but argued that the vice president might not be aware of the controversy.
But when you’re in the racial justice business, isn’t that your business?
‘Someone like me’
Former secretary of state, senator and presidential candidate John Kerry moved on with his comments proving he said one thing and did another.
Recently news emerged that the climate czar for the Biden government was traveling by private jet to Iceland as a citizen in 2019 to receive an environmental award. He was awarded the Arctic Circle award, an iceberg sculpture, for his leadership on climate issues and for being “a consistent voice pressing the American government to commit to tackling environmental issues,” according to the Icelandic outlet RUV.
While there, Kerry is confronted by Icelandic reporter Jóhann Bjarni Kolbeinsson, who asks him whether using a private jet to get to the country is “an environmental way to travel.”
“If you offset your carbon,” he said, without elaborating on how he did it, “that’s the only option for people like me, who travel the world to win this battle.”
The arrogance of Kerry’s “someone like me” comment was quickly compared to his recent quip in which he suggested people laid off from Keystone plumbing work by the Biden administration could “build solar panels.”
The life of the rich and critical
Model Chrissy Teigen, who has been an outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump, got her own dose of medicine last week when she posted on social media how she felt she felt cheated when a $ 13,000 bottle of wine didn’t live up to her expectations.
“[O]this time, “he wrote on Twitter,” john [Legend, her singer-husband] and I was at a restaurant and the waiter recommended a good Cabernet. We got the bill and it was $ 13,000. HOW DO YOU RECOMMEND the wine in a relaxed manner. we didn’t even finish it and it’s been cleaned !!! “
Twitter users immediately took Teigen, who is reportedly worth an estimated $ 75 million, for an assignment for his tone-deaf comments.
“Are you cured?” asked one of the posters. “Meanwhile people here are deep in debt, losing their homes and unable to pay the doctors.”
“[O]One time I was forced into an ambulance and I was still paying the bill for the less than 10 minute ride to the hospital 4 years later so I got to where you came from, “said another.
“Something similar happened to me,” said a third. “Instacart sends me four bunches of bananas instead of four bananas, and they charge me $ 6.60 instead of $ 0.88. Our lifestyle is very similar.”
Later, Teigen, to his compliments, tweeted that “I saw your tweet, I understand your joke, you are very funny, yeah, you really captivated me.”
We didn’t cancel
We don’t imagine it was support for country singer Morgan Wallen’s use of racial slurs that led to her songs filling seven of the top 10 spots on Apple Music last week, but maybe it’s the idea that she should be an outsider after that. do it.
The singer, coming home after partying with his friends, called one of his friends with some curse and the word n —–. His words were caught on video by a neighbor.
As soon as the incident was published on TMZ, Wallen’s music was removed from the Spotify Hot Country Songs playlist and Apple Music’s Region of the Day list.
The singer said he felt “ashamed and sorry” for what he said.
“I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slurs that I hope I can take back,” Wallen said. “There’s no reason to use this kind of language, ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using that word. I promise to do better.”
His fans, obviously, accepted his apology and didn’t want to see him “undone,” as is the custom of the left with celebrities in similar situations.
