Kamala Harris‘ supporters are coming to her defense after her critics accused her of degrading disabled people. The controversy started when the vice president delivered a speech at a roundtable discussion with disability rights activists on Tuesday, MSNBC reports.
Harris tried to accommodate the disabled people in the room, stating her pronouns when she introduced herself and giving a visual description of what she was wearing.
“I am Kamala Harris, my pronouns are she and her, and I am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit,” she said.
Harris was later met with backlash from critics such as Sen. Ted Cruz, who viewed her gesture as a mockery.
