Ivanka Trump can’t do a thing right this Christmas it seems.
The entrepreneur and First Daughter of US president Donald Trump has been copping flack on the internet for her “out-of-touch” behaviour, criticised for three internet faux-pas in less than as many days.
LISTEN: Why haven’t we heard from Jared, Ivanka or Don Jr. recently? (Post continues.)
But what started as perhaps fair criticism has turned into an all-out pile on, where internet trolls seem to be trying to find ways to be offended by her innocuous social media posts.
Let’s take a look, shall we?
The Tiffany tweet
On Boxing Day Tiffany Trump posted a short Snapchat video of her sister and her making kissing faces to the camera on a beach deck somewhere in Palm Beach, Florida.
Sure, it’s not the sincerest of ‘Merry Christmas’ messages, but for the most part, it looks like a pretty typical clip a 24-year-old might post of her and her sister.
Yet within minutes, Twitter users were attacking it for being a gross display of wealth, labelling both Tiffany and Ivanka as “tone-deaf”.
“Just another way to say, “Suck it, poor folks!” disguised as “Merry Christmas!” commented one, while others suggested they should have been volunteering at homeless shelters instead.
And while some might think that criticism was valid, it looks a bit over-the-top when what happened next is taken into account.
