Amal Clooney shows off her baby bump at the United Nations https://t.co/EvO1cIvKDu— TIME (@TIME) March 9, 2017
People came together to point out why the activist and lawyer was at the UN. Many called out the publication for not focussing on the substance of her speech and highlighting her baby bump and clothes instead.
@TIME She was there at hearings on genocide, which is her *job*. Could you be more patronizing and vapid if you tried?— Jonathan Eyler-Werve (@EylerWerve) March 9, 2017
@TIME We just celebrated International Women's Day. This is not the headline, how about pretending she is a person doing important stuff?— Carolyn (@cstampeen) March 9, 2017
@TIME And once everyone had finished asking her if she wanted a boy or girl, she got on with all that genocide investigation stuff.— Ross McKinnonWaddell (@Ramck001) March 9, 2017
@TIME Oh good. I'm glad you focused on the important things and not like her discussing genocide and human rights and what not.— Lo Mayne (@LoMayne) March 9, 2017
Amal Clooney was speaking on behalf of Yazidi women who escaped ISIS enslavement. She was addressing member states for the second time in six months to call for action against ISIS terrorists.
In August 2015, news agency Associated Press was under fire for referring to her as George Clooney's wife.
