New York magazine has named the man at the center of the recent #metoo campaign the “Best-Dressed Man in the World,” according to the most recent results of its survey.
The man, who is not identified in the article, was also named by The Associated Press as the “Most Stylish Man in New York City,” according the website of the publication.
#meto is a hashtag coined in February to raise awareness of a phenomenon in which the social media platform #metovigilante, often used by activists against police brutality, is now used as a tool to identify those who are committing acts of hate and violence.
The hashtag has been trending in the United States since early March, and has been widely adopted by Twitter users.
The AP’s survey was conducted on Monday, March 9.
The results of the survey were published Tuesday, March 10.

“I think the most beautiful thing about this whole movement is how it has brought together people from so many different walks of life.
I think that people feel empowered to be themselves and not feel like they have to hide anything or they have no right to be the ‘cool’ person.”
The man also said that he is looking forward to a day when he will no longer have to fear his safety because he has a mask on.
“For me, it’s been an incredible journey.
I’m very proud of what I have achieved, but I also think that the masks that are being used now, it seems to be a little bit of a distraction,” he said.
