Hillary Clinton, 2016 US Democratic Party presidential nominee, has rearranged her Twitter bio after the conversation she had with Chimamanda Adichie, a Nigerian author.
Adichie had expressed displeasure over Clinton’s use of “wife” to begin her Twitter bio.
The award-winning writer voiced the sentiment at the PEN World Voices Festival on April 22.
Clinton promised to make a correction and replied saying, “when you put it like that, I’m going to change it”.
The former first lady of the US has now rearranged her Twitter bio.
“2016 Democratic Nominee, SecState, Senator, hair icon. Mom, Wife, Grandma x2, lawyer, advocate, fan of walks in the woods & standing up for our democracy,” Clinton’s bio reads.
The Twitter bio had previously read: “Wife, mom, grandma, women+kids advocate, FLOTUS, Senator, SecState, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, 2016 presidential candidate.”
Adichie had received heavy backlash from the public and the online community, with many accusing her of overreaching with her brand of feminism.
