Oakes received swift backlash on Twitter following the absurd tweet, prompting her to switch her account to private.
This isn’t the first time Buzzfeed staffers revealed their misplaced love of Communism.
Just last month, Buzzfeed reporter Blake Montgomery said in a now-deleted tweet that President Trump honoring the victims of Communism was a “white nationalist talking point.”
Buzzfeed world editor Miriam Elder was one of many who criticized the remark, noting “Soviet oppression was real.”
Montgomery has since apologized after the backlash.
