Sexist hypocritical men on Twitter are being embarrassed non-stop by one brilliant woman.

Here’s one clever way to fight back against double standards.

From the day they’re born women have to deal with double standards. In the office, if they’re overconfident they’re a “bitch.” Too passive? Well, then they’re a “pushover.” When it comes to expressing their sexuality, they’re either “tight” if too conservative or a “slut” if they express themselves freely.

Hate groups, from the Klu Klux Klan to neo-Nazi groups, have sprouted up behind him like weeds.

A $150 Billion Plan To End Racism Just Got Some Serious Backing

Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kevin Hart and more read the crimes of black Americans killed by police

Last week, Mic ran a story called “23 Everyday Actions Punishable by Death if You're Black in America.” And it is exactly what it sounds like, a numbered list of circumstances that resulted in black people being killed by police officers. Each action links out to the story of the specific incident.

On Tuesday, Mic released a video companion to the piece that was made in conjunction with the We Are Here Movement, a social justice organization. In the PSA, figures like Rihanna, Beyoncé, Alicia Keys and even Bono take turns reading the 23 ways as images of victims appear alongside their stated “crimes”, like carrying a toy gun and walking away from police.
