On Thursday, former singer and current liberal activist Barbra Streisand expressed her anger over “evil Republicans” who are keeping their money, after Trump’s tax plan passed.
Streisand retweeted an article from the New York Times called “The Great American Tax Heist.”

However, Streisand forgot about her own past “milking for money,” but Ben Shapiro was happy to remind her.
Wait, aren’t you the lady who sued a photographer for $50 million for including a picture of your house in an environmental photo collection? https://t.co/j5hbux9iyH

From Daily Wire
The incident Shapiro referred to occurred in 2003, when Streisand decided to sue environmentalist photographer Kenneth Adelman for putting out aerial pictures of her Malibu estate. Adelman ran the California Coastal Records Project, which worked to provide photos of the California coast to government officials for purposes of educating them about erosion. The picture in question had been seen some six times . . . total.
As MentalFloss summarizes, this created the so-called Streisand Effect, in which millions of people accessed the photos after finding out about Streisand’s nutty lawsuit. By the way, Streisand lost her lawsuit and had to pay Adelman’s legal fees.
What a woman of the people.
