Conway Defends Inaugural Outfit: ‘Sorry to Offend the Black-Stretch-Pants Women of America’


In a new profile in The Hollywood Reporter, Kellyanne Conway responded to the dragging she was subjected to online after she wore that Gucci getup to the inaugural proceedings last week.

At the time, she described it repeatedly as, “revolutionary wear.”

To The Hollywood Reporter, she defended her red, white, and blue outfit by saying she’s “sorry to offend the black-stretch-pants women of America with a little color.”

She also took aim at “the public cesspool that is Twitter,” where she was not only ridiculed for that ensemble, but where she is called, as she puts it, “ugly, stupid, liar, meth queen.”

Finally — perhaps in a nod to the calls for networks to stop featuring her altogether, but timely whether intentional or not — she said, “I can put my shoes and panty hose back on and go on any show at any time.”

If anything, getting a profile in THR means that Saturday Night Live got it right. Conway is a celebrity now.
