Melania Trump's People Want To Boycott T.I. For Showing Her Lookalike Stripping In A Video
The First Lady of the United States isn't happy with T.I.'s latest music video, and now her office is calling for a boycott.
In a teaser for his upcoming album, T.I. has made a very clear statement that he's not a big fan of US President Donald Trump.
Tweeting out the 1-minute teaser with the caption, "Dear 45, I ain't Kanye", the short clip features a voice-over explaining that Melania Trump didn't join her husband on one of his many trips to Mar-a-Lago.
The lookalike then appears wearing FLOTUS' now infamous jacket with the words, "I Really Don't Care, Do U?" which she strips off in front of the rapper.
The video is a teaser for his upcoming album Dime Tap, which has been slammed by Melania's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.
Grisham, Melania's Director of Communications, tweeted her disgust at the video, adding the hashtag #boycottT.I. (but due to the punctuation in the hashtag, it actually only links to "boycottT").
According to TMZ, Grisham also released a further statement elaborating on her disgust toward the video saying, "Like it or not, she is the First Lady and this is the White House. It's disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics."
"These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country," Grisham said adding, "it needs to stop."
The video comes just days after Melania told ABC News that she believes she's "the most bullied person in the world".
In the same interview, Melania said her controversial jacket, which she wore on a trip to a migrant child detention centre, was a message to the press.
"It's obvious I didn't wear the jacket for the children, I wore the jacket to go on the plane and off the plane," Melania Trump said.
"It was for the people and for the left-wing media who are criticising me," FLOTUS said. "I want to show them I don't care. You could criticise whatever you want to say. But it will not stop me to do what I feel is right."
This isn't the first time T.I. has struck out at the White House. Following Kanye West's most recent and widely reported visit with Trump, the rapper wrote on Instagram that it was "the most repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation and auctioning off of one's soul to gain power" he'd seen.
