Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “AOC ripped for attending elite Met gala in ‘Tax the Rich’ dress”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Self-proclaimed “socialist” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed early Tuesday that it was her “responsibility” to attend the Met Gala — as she was roundly ripped for wearing a couture “Tax the Rich” dress to the elite bash where tickets cost at least $30,000.

The mask-less New York Congresswoman turned heads as she joined other left-wing leaders like Mayor Bill de Blasio at the exclusive New York bash late Monday — passing by a Black Lives Matter protest against the event taking place outside.

She justified wearing her dress by New York-based Aurora James — who she hailed as a “sustainably focused, Black woman immigrant designer” — claiming they were there to “kick open the doors at the Met.”

“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,” she tweeted early Tuesday. “I was one of several in attendance in this evening,” she noted defensively.

Some online suggested that her defensive message was a sign that she “already knew the optics on this were gonna be really bad” — with her attendance quickly getting a dressing down online.
