About

Kamala Harris' Roe v. Wade Tweet, also known as Kamala Harris Watching TV, is a photo posted on Twitter by U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris in June 2022 that acted as her initial response to the overturning of Roe v. Wade. The photograph showed Harris on a plane, watching the news coverage of the event with a contemplative gaze. Many internet users, both liberal and conservative, found the tweet tone-deaf as it initially sparked controversy. The image then became an exploitable meme was subsequently photoshopped and recaptioned by creators as a form of satire.
