Harry Styles Roasts Pundits For Their Pointless Tantrums On Men In Dresses
It was the cover that launched a thousand tweets. Last month, Vogue Magazine shared exclusive photos of pop star Harry Styles rocking a dress in their December 2020 issue on social media, garnering over 80 thousand likes, hundreds of supportive replies, and of course, the canned fury of conservative pundits losing their minds at the sight of a man donning anything other than a formal tuxedo, military uniform, or dirty farmer's overalls.
The angriest of the bunch? Notable right-wing authors Candace Owens and "WAP" cover artist, Ben Shapiro.
"There is no society that can survive without strong men," Owens posted on Twitter. "The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men."
Soon after, Shapiro, chimed in, echoing Owens' irrational fashion ire. "This is perfectly obvious," quipped Shapiro. "Anyone who pretends that it is not a referendum on masculinity for men to don floofy dresses is treating you as a full-on idiot."
Yet after nearly three weeks, it seems Shapiro and Owens are now the ones bring treated "as a full on idiot" with the former One Direction singer roasting them in a new Instagram post, exacting digital revenge as sweet as a "Watermelon Sugar High."
On Wednesday morning, the artist shared a photo of himself eating in a banana, donning a frilly powder blue suit alongside the caption "Bring back manly men," a reference to Owens' original angry tweet.
