Laura Ingraham courageously attacks man buns at RNC     DATE: 2024-07-15 16:33:41

For far too long, men all across America have worn man buns without stigma -- but that stops today.

During the Republican National Convention Wednesday night, conservative commentator Laura Ingraham finally spoke out about the American man bun epidemic. No longer content to sit quietly by the sidelines, Ingraham shared her anti-skinny jeans and manbun-phobic views loudly and proudly.

"And the Democrats answer to all that is to nominate the woman who helped orchestrate America's decline," Ingraham said. "Think about it. That has to be some cruel joke, like skinny jeans on men or man buns or something like that."

Men who wear skinny jeans have long been mocked for being too effeminate. But for many in the bun community -- man bun wearers and their allies -- the attacks came as a painful surprise, especially at a convention dedicated to, you know, politics.

Sadly, her call to arms did not find many adherents on Twitter.

While Ingraham's skinny jean and man bun shaming was largely attacked across social media, some proudly came to her side.

Ingraham's speech may go down as one of the most infamous anti man-bun speeches in all of convention history.

Where do you stand on the man bun divide?
