Abigail Fisher Lost Her Anti-Affirmative Action Case and the Internet Is Roasting Her
The Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of race-conscious admissions policies on Thursday, ruling against a white student who sued the University of Texas at Austin for denying her admission.
The plaintiff, Abigail Fisher, is a big believer in the myth of reverse racism. She insisted that she was rejected from the school because unqualified non-white students took her place. As ProPublica pointed out, Fisher's low grades probably had more to do with her being rejected from the school than affirmative action.
Twitter threw shade at Fisher in light of the decision, referring to her as #BeckyWithTheBadGrades — a reference to the song "Sorry" on Beyoncé's album Lemonade, which contains the line "Becky with the good hair."
Here are some of the best tweets about #BeckyWithTheBadGrades:
Stay mad, Abby.
