According to Business Insider, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended Taylor Swift in the musician's fight for her old music. In a tweet Ocasio-Cortez slammed private equity groups, saying that their impact is bigger than music. She argues that private equity groups' predatory practices hurt millions of Americans and impact their jobs. She wrote "Their leveraged buyouts have destroyed the lives of retail workers across the country, scrapping 1+ million jobs. Now they're holding [Swift's] own music hostage." Ocasio-Cortez called for them to be reigned in. She added, "For people w/ friends or family who worked in retail & suddenly laid off or hours deeply cut (Toys R' Us, Sears, Sports Authority, etc) & sometimes stripped of severance, that goes back to PE as well."
