Vanity Fair has issued a public apology for a video it posted that poked fun at Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign. Although intended to be humorous, many are offended by its content. The video, titled “Six New Year’s Resolutions for Hillary Clinton” suggests the almost president should take up “literally anything that will keep you from running again.”The video has generated gained thousands of comments, views, and retweets since it was first posted on 23rd December. It was uploaded to Twitter captioned “maybe it’s time for Hillary Clinton to take up a new hobby in 2018.” Vanity Fair editors drink champagne and poke fun at Mrs. Clinton’s loss in the 2017 presidential elections. They make suggestions about what she should do next year.
The suggestions have derogatory undertones. They include:
- “It’s time to start working on your sequel to your book, What Happened: What the Hell Happened.”
- “Get someone on your tech staff to disable autofill on your iPhone so that typing in F doesn’t become ‘Form Exploratory Committee for 2020.'”
- “You know how on Anderson Cooper you were telling him about alternate-nostril breathing? You seemed really adept. You should try teaching a class.”
- “Take more photos in the woods. How else you are going to meet unsuspecting hikers?”
- Take up a new hobby in the New Year: Volunteer work, knitting, improv comedy – literally anything that will keep you from running again.”
- Put away your James Comey voodoo doll. We all know you think James Comey cost you the election, and maybe he might have, but so did a handful of other things. It’s a year later and time to move on.”
People are angered by the post and even left upset comments in reply. Famous actress Patricia Arquette took the video as an offense towards women. She wrote:
“Hey, stop telling women what the f*** they should do or can do. Get over your mommy issues”
Other tweeters directed their comments at vanity fair, calling them an example of bad media that allowed for Trump to win the election. “This is disrespectful and disappointing, ultimately representative of the god-awful reporting that helped Trump secure his win. Cheers to you, @VanityFair.”
Vanity Fair apologized for the video. However, they decided not to take it down. Vanity Fair’s spokeswoman, Beth Kseniak, explained that the video was meant to be funny and not offensive in any way. “It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark,” she said.
