The Washington Post is being mocked for a silly headline it published about former secretary of state Madeleine Albright.

“Madeleine Albright has ascended from historic diplomat to Yas Queen feminist icon,” the headline reads.

Jessica Contrera writes that Albright has become a “millennial icon” because of her position as the first female secretary of state, citing tweets and statements from young women and college students.

“Everywhere she and her famed brooches go, the aura of lovable feminist granny follows,” the piece states.

Twitter users mocked The Washington Post for the silly headline and piece lauding Albright.
