Rhode Island Senator Tiara Mack is under fire for posting a video of herself twerking upside down in an effort to garner votes.
Senator Tiara Mack was elected to the Rhode Island Senate on November 3, 2020, a graduate of Brown University and currently a Youth Organizing Specialist at Planned Parenthood of Southern New England.
In the video, she simply says: “Vote Senator Mack”.
Twitter is lit to say the least, people are calling her out for ‘disgracing black women’ and promoting a particular stereotype.
Rhode Island State Senator Tiara Mack (D) twerking and encouraging people to vote her. This doesn’t help the stereotype we are battling with, but okay sha.

This is RI Senator Tiara Mack- who the white democrats brag about being the first openly LGBTQ Black person elected to the Rhode Island Senate.
She is twerking for votes.
Hey Democrats….please don’t give Corey Booker any ideas

Others noting that they arent judging, but a Senator twerking for voted doesnt sit right.
I’m not here to judge anyone when it comes to “modest” appearance because I know how it feels for people to do it to me, but…
I’m absolutely 100% positive a United States Senator twerking is not okay, especially as a representative of the people, it’s absolutely dishonorable…

Senetor Mack has responded to a few folks you have openly critisided her.
In one tweet she made it clear she has an Ivy Leauge Degree.
girl. I have an Ivy League degree and am a state senator. Hate to break it to you. Their decorum isn’t for us. They can’t respect us in a system designed to oppress us.
To which one user made the point that she will only now be known as the senator who twerked.
An Ivy League degree and a young black senator and all you’re going to be know as is the senator who showed her ass twerking on tik tok…good job https://t.co/K0XBFaJa8O

An Ivy League degree doesn't prevent you from looking back (hopefully) and thinking you should have used better judgement.
As for the *a state senator* response. Your behavior seems par for the course in that crowd. Black folks- should expect more. Politicians- yea, about right

So y’all praise Megan for twerking but talking down on the senator from Rhode Island? What’s the difference?

People don't care that you're twerking. People care that you're twerking in your capacity as an elected official to attempt to garner votes. It's completely unbecoming of a state senator to, and I can't believe I'm saying this, campaign via twerking.
