Twitter exploded with reaction to the dress.
Megyn Kelly exploded on her calling her a ” pathetic self-aggrandizing hypocrite.”
A pathetic self-aggrandizing hypocrite. Meanwhile our kids are muzzled & six feet apart all day long while trying to learn but she & these other “Rules for Thee but Not for Me” pols can parade around maskless & in top of each other at the Met Gala bc, SCIENCE.
Steve Deace blasted those attending the gala as “elitist buffoons.”
Just hypocritical, zero self-awareness, elitist buffoons. https://t.co/HAI6M8rIlG

Outside of AOC being tone deaf and a complete hypocrite, the dress is ugly. https://t.co/qcVzQk4fKh

Donald Trump Jr. pointed out that the dress isn’t the only hypocritical thing about AOC.
Where’s the mask?
What makes @AOC a bigger fraud:
The "tax the rich" dress while she's hanging out with a bunch of wealthy leftwing elites or the lack of masks after spending the past 18 months as one of the biggest authoritarian mask Karens in the country? https://t.co/pE84Pjquh1
