Sen. Elizabeth Warren Faces Criticism over ‘Slut-Shaming’ Tweet

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism for saying that President Donald Trump “slut-shamed” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday.

After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of “slut-shaming.”

“Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand?” asked Sen. Warren in her post. “Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.”

Sen. Warren was quickly criticized for her post, with numerous users pointing out how she had insinuated that Gillibrand is a “slut.”

As defined by OxfordDictionaries.com, slut-shaming is, “The action or fact of stigmatizing a woman for engaging in behaviour judged to be promiscuous or sexually provocative.”
