Thanks to her surname, many may automatically associate her with Hollywood star George Clooney. However, Clooney, née Alamuddin, is a eminent Humar Rights lawyer,activist, and author and a tellurian luminary in her possess right.

In fact she was was famous for her high-profile clients such as  Julian Assange,  Maldives ex-President Mohamed Nasheed, and former Ukraine Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko even before she was married.

So when The Associated Press (AP) tweeted a below story about Clooney, referring to her as ‘actor’s wife’ was not usually unnecessary, though also offensive.

While a story, about Clooney fortifying 3 Al Jazeera reporters condemned by Egypt to 3 years in prison, did not discuss her husband, a chatter done her out to be like an Hollywood celebrity some-more than a internationally successful counsel that she is.

As expected, a gaffe sparked snub on Twitter with many users pursuit AP out on a sexist inlet of a tweet.

However AP did not take down a strange chatter though about an hour after posted another chatter that referred to Clooney as a Human Rights lawyer.

Overall, it comes as no warn that Twitter came down tough on AP. Gender equivalence are topics that are widely contended on Twitter and a news group as distinguished as AP identifying Clooney as by her husband’s contention in a story that is totally unfriendly to Hollywood, seems to be a step behind for feminism.
