Author Barbara Ehrenreich is known for books such as USA TODAY best-sellers "Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America," "Bait and Switch: The (Futile) Pursuit of the American Dream," and most recently, "Natural Causes," released in 2018.
But in a since-deleted xenophobic tweet, Ehrenreich made a comment about fellow author Marie Kondo that quickly went viral.
Kondo is the author of "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" and "Spark Joy," both international bestselling books. Kondo, who is Japanese, is also the star of a new Netflix show, "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo," in which she used a translator to communicate with English-speaking clients.
"I will be convinced that America is not in decline only when our de-cluttering guru Marie Kondo learns to speak English." Ehrenreich tweeted at 11:05 a.m. Monday.
