The following article, AOC Sports Gaudy ‘Tax The Rich’ Dress at Elitist Fashion Event in NYC, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has jumped the shark, and in dramatically ironic fashion.
The precocious progressive this week attended the Met Gala, one of New York City’s poshest fashion-foward events, hobnobbing with elites, and rubbing elbows with the filthy rich and highly famous.
But AOC couldn’t seem to resist making a scene – even if it was about as tone-deaf as Roseanne Barr’s rendition of The Star Spangled Banner.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., wore a white dress with the slogan “tax the rich” at the lavish Met Gala in New York, where tickets go for at least $30,000 each.
The wardrobe choice drew a mixed response on social media, with some praising Ocasio-Cortez’s message and others calling it “obscenely out of touch and completely hypocritical.”
Tickets to the Met Gala cost at least $30,000, The Associated Press reported. It’s unclear if Ocasio-Cortez purchased a ticket.
Twitter users lit Ocasio-Cortez up over the ridiculous stunt.
I am calling on the Ethics Committee to IMMEDIATELY conduct an investigation into @aoc & the gifts she claims to have received to attend the #MetGala2021 ! The $30k ticket & the designer gown BOTH exceed the legal gift limit of $200!
