New York congresswoman and self-described socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been in hot water following her infamous outing at the 2021 Met Gala, where she appeared in a luxurious white dress featuring the slogan ‘Tax the Rich’ written all over it.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s scandal-ridden appearance at the Met Gala took a new turn after Vogue released a clip showing the congresswoman’s preparation for the expensive night, where she was attended to by “masked slaves” as some furious social media users have put it.
The footage shows a smiling Ocasio-Cortez getting help from her aides as she dons a sleeveless white dress with ‘Tax the Rich’ emblazoned on it in preparation for the event, which cost at least $30,000 per ticket for attendees.
All of AOC’s helpers and stylists - described on social media as “peasant servants” - were seen wearing masks as they were making final adjustments to her look before the controversial exit.
But neither the congresswoman herself, nor her boyfriend bothered with face coverings while indoors - something that had caused a new wave of uproar among commentators.
The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald said that AOC’s royal-like outing has seemingly demonstrated that “the ‘Science’ rules don’t apply to everyone”.
“In new video from Vogue, AOC and her boyfriend passed through a large team of masked servants - all while they remain mask-free indoors - as they prepared to attend a ball like the Prince and Princess of Wales,” Greenwald raged on Twitter.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez maintains that it was her “responsibility” to attend the Met Gala as an elected official and says that she and her beau were invited to the gathering. The lavish soiree was probably paid for by the event’s sponsors but the controversy around her decision to attend is still gaining momentum among New Yorkers as it turned out that her dress’ designer Aurora James, a reported millionaire, herself has a number of outstanding tax bills.
