Teen Vogue columnist Emily Lindin claimed she wasn’t “concerned” about “innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations,” this week.

“Here’s an unpopular opinion: I’m actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations,” declared Teen Vogue’s Lindin in a series of posts on Twitter. “False allegations VERY rarely happen, so even bringing it up borders on a derailment tactic. It’s a microscopic risk in comparison to the issue at hand (worldwide, systemic oppression of half the population).”

In response to the posts, CNN anchor Jake Tapper replied, “I’m guessing you didn’t get a good grade for your 7th grade book report on To Kill A Mockingbird,” while Donald Trump Jr. also commented on the incident.

Lindin has since set her Twitter account, which has over 23,000 followers, to private.

Teen Vogue, which is set to be guest-edited by losing presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in December, previously faced controversy in July when writer Lauren Duca posted, “Wake me up when men are obsolete,” on Twitter.

In June, the magazine also called “March Against Sharia” hate speech, while in July it was criticized for an anal sex tutorial for its young readers.
