One super model went to a party and was stunned when a reporter turned to her and, in casual conversation, told her that Melania Trump 'is a hooker.' The model might not agree with the politics of Mrs. Trump's husband, but she wasn't going to stand for a woman to be slandered like that.
Emily Ratajkowski says she won't reveal names, but she was furious when a journalist told her off the record that the FLOTUS is a hooker. Other media outlets have spread unfounded rumors that Mrs. Trump, a former model, was also a high-priced call girl.
Ratajkowski, who was an avid Bernie Sanders supporter, shut down that kind of talk right away. She then took to Twitter to vent her frustration.
"Sat next to a journalist from the NYT last night who told me 'Melania is a hooker.' Whatever your politics it's crucial to call this out for what it is: slut shaming. I don't care about her nudes or sexual history and no one should," she said in a series of tweets.
"Gender specific attacks are disgusting sexist bulls--t," the super model added.
Jacob Bernstein, a New York Times reporter, stepped up and revealed himself. He wanted to apologize for the harsh comment. “I want to take ownership of a mistake I made. Speaking at a party in what I thought was a personal conversation, I nevertheless made a stupid remark about the first lady,” he said. "My editors have made it clear my behavior was not in keeping with the standards of the Times, and I agree.... My mistake, referring to unfounded rumors, shouldn’t reflect on anyone else and I apologize profusely.”
Mrs. Trump, who started a Twitter account when her husband took office but barely uses it, called out Ratajkowski to thank her. "Applause to all women around the world who speak up, stand up and support other women!" she tweeted.
