The Clippers celebrated International Women’s Day by nominating oh, no….
Back when I was on OkCupid, I live by a single rule: anyone who mentioned ‘Ayn Rand’ in their profile would be immediately removed from consideration.
If only more people were like me. Like the Los Angeles Clippers for example, who, for International Women’s Day, decided to nominate three of their favorite feminists: Maya Angelou, Anne Frank and everyone’s favorite objectivist rationalist individualist, Ayn Rand.
Paul Ryan must be so proud. But seriously someone needs to tell the Clippers that Ayn Rand is not a feminist hero.
The @LAClippers deleted the tweet, but this deserves to be remembered.

It should be noted that the Clippers promoted all of these women, including Anne Frank, a holocaust victim, as part of their corporate partnership with dating app Bumble. Hmm.
Thankfully, it didn’t take long before Twitter branded the Clippers with a few third-degree burns, and they finally deleted the tweet.
Isn’t capitalism grand?
