See the Irony? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Puts On 'Tax the Rich' Dress to $30K-Per-Ticket Met Gala
"And we said, we can't just play along, but we need to break the fourth wall and challenge some of the institutions, and although the Met is known for its spectacle, we should have a conversation about it," Ocasio-Cortez explained to journalists on the red carpet.
And before haters get wild flying off the handle, New York elected officials are routinely invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing and supporting the city’s cultural institutions for the public. I was one of several in attendance in this evening.🤗— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) September 14, 2021
First of all, no... this is awful, ill fitting & looks like she made it in Home Ec. Second of all wearing a $20,000+ couture gown (however bad) to a $35,000 per ticket event really diminishes the message she's supposedly trying to send & looks a lot more like she wants attention— The Rose (@TheReddestRose) September 14, 2021
