In a surprising twist, the “Bleach Blonde Bad Built Butch Body” Challenge has gone viral. The personal attacks between Congresswomen Jasmine Crockett and Marjorie Taylor Greene this week revealed the ugly side of partisan politics but led to something positive: a wave of songs on social media inspired by Crockett’s catchy description of Greene.

During a House Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing on Thursday, Greene mocked Crockett’s “fake eyelashes,” saying they prevented her from reading documents. When Democrats Jamie Raskin and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demanded an apology, Greene refused. Crockett responded by saying, “If someone on this committee starts talking about somebody’s bleach blonde bad built butch body, that would not be engaging in personalities, correct?”

Crockett’s comment quickly went viral, leading to numerous songs created by content creators. She started a social media thread to gather all the “bleach blonde bad built butch body” songs, or “B6 songs.”

“The INTERNET is UNdefeated!” Crockett wrote on X, formerly Twitter. She shared a country song with the line, “you’re a bleach blonde bad built butch body, swinging for the fences, good God almighty,” and encouraged her nearly 300,000 followers to share their favorite B6 songs.

Crockett’s followers responded enthusiastically, posting many songs, including one styled after Kendrick Lamar’s diss track “They Not Like Us.” Crockett said that version “has been a fav for me!”

Throughout her young career, Crockett has often gone viral and ruffled Republican feathers. Last month, her podcast appearance led to false accusations of anti-Black racism after she discussed reparations. Conservatives misrepresented her words, claiming she lobbied for “exempting blacks from taxes.” In January, she called out Republican lies during a House Oversight Committee meeting and later rebuked Rep. Nancy Mace for accusing Hunter Biden of using “white privilege.”

Last year on the Small Doses podcast with Amanda Seales, Crockett explained her commitment to progressive policies. “To be progressive means fighting for policies that will progress this country and my people, against anything regressive,” she said. “It’s about people-centered policies that ensure a better future.”
