Melania Trump got some bad news today when fashion designer Sophie Theallet announced she is refusing to dress the future first lady because she does not like Donald 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 on Thursday. “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 reported that Theallet, 52, is a French-born designer who dressed current first lady Michelle Obama numerous times.
“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 also called for her fellow designers to boycott Melania, saying, “Integrity is our only true currency.”
It’s sickening that this designer is taking a stand against Melania simply because she does not like her husband’s policies. SHARE this story if you stand with Melania Trump!
