Met Gala: AOC wears “tax the rich” dress, Nicki Minaj stays away due to vax mandate

Two highly influential women had a different approach to last night’s Met Gala in New York City.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who majored in economics at Boston University, crashed the high-profile Met Gala 2021 red carpet wearing a gown with “Tax the Rich” printed on it.
You might recall that AOC helped sink Amazon’s new headquarters in Queens that would have brought 25,000 jobs squashing a potential economic boon for Long Island City residents.

Meanwhile, rapper Nicki Minaj skipped out on last night’s Met Gala because of the COVID vaccination requirement.

She says she won’t get vaccinated until more research is done. She’s already had COVID and says she has natural immunity.
Minaj went on to tweet that a friend of her cousin apparently had adverse side effects, infertility, from the vaccine though it’s unclear which of the three available vaccines they received.
