” Today I was detained protesting the Supreme Court election of Brett Kavanaugh, a male who has actually been accused by several females of sexual attack,” she said, touting the unverified allegations of Kavanaugh’s accusers.
” Men who harmed women can no longer be put in positions of power.

The design has likewise taken a dive into climate change activism, a subject championed by Sanders, but came under fire in 2015 after recognizing “plastic straws” and “corporate greed” as the “problem” in a now-deleted tweet in assistance of the worldwide environment strike.
The tweet prompted a flashback to Ratajkowski’s excessive use of air travel, which has been well-documented on social media.
