Author/activist Barbara Ehreneich apologizes for Marie Kondo tweet deemed racist
“I will be convinced that America is not in decline only when our de-cluttering guru Marie Kondo learns to speak English," Ehreneich wrote in a now-deleted tweet. After deleting the tweet, she tweeted that she's okay with the Tidying Up star not speaking English "to her huge American audience but it does suggest that America is in decline as a superpower." After the tweets were called "racist" and xenophobic, Ehreneich tweeted: “Sorry to anyone offended by my tweet about Marie Kondo! Sometimes my attempts at subtle humor just don’t work.”
