Celebs react to AOC's speech about misogyny

ICYMI Rep. Yoho called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a "f**king b*tch" for suggesting that poverty might be linked to rising crime in New York City. He offered a non-apology on the floor of the House of Representatives yesterday and mentioned having a wife and two daughters, as if that's supposed to make people think he's incapable of misogyny.

AOC gave a moving speech today calling out Yoho and the pervasive culture of misogyny that goes unchecked in today's society. In her speech, she said that Yoho's comments did not affect her because she's used to experiencing abusive language from men all her life including in the service industry but she wants to take a stand and be a role model for her young nieces.
