As our future first lady, Melania Trump has come under a critical microscope lately, with liberals using her as a target for their anger at president-elect Donald Trump. Melania reportedly received news this week that fashion designer Sophie Theallet is refusing to dress her because she does not agree with Trump.
“As one who celebrates and strives for diversity, individual freedom, and respect for all lifestyles, I will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady,” Theallet wrote in an open letter she posted to Twitter. “The rhetoric of racism, sexism, and xenophobia unleashed by her husband’s presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by.”
Fox News reports the 52-year-old French-born designer dressed current first lady Michelle Obama on several occasions.
“As an immigrant in this country, I have been blessed with the opportunity to pursue my dreams in the USA,” she added. “Dressing the First Lady Michelle Obama for the past 8 years has been a highlight and an honor. She has contributed to having our name recognized and respected worldwide.”
Theallet then called on her fellow designers to join in on the boycott.
“Integrity is our only true currency,” she argued.
Michelle may not care about this designer’s opinions, but she has been the target of some cruel comments and protests.
What do you think? Is it wrong to target Melania simply because of a dislike for her husband? As our future first lady, she deserves more respect. Do you agree?
