Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is definitely operating on the “any attention is good attention” theory lately, and she got the attention she craves when she posted a picture of herself drinking sangria and flaunting a ring with the message “fuck off.” Truly, it was her own Melania Trump “I don’t really care, do you?” moment.
Well, turns out the maker of that ring is not on board with Sinema’s project. “At Yellow Owl we create fun stuff to express yourself but we are dead serious about social justice. We fully support at least a $15 minimum wage because EQUITY and DIGNITY LOOK GOOD on EVERYONE,” Yellow Owl Workshop posted on Instagram. For the remainder of the month, the business is donating profits from sales of the ring to the National Employment Law Project.
