Social Media Has Field Day With Ivanka Over Reference To Her ‘Punk Phase’

If nothing else, Ivanka Trump manages to attract a ton of attention on social media. She really doesn’t have to put any effort into it either. If something regarding the First Daughter begins making the rounds, it will catch on like wildfire in a heartbeat. Unfortunately for Ivanka, the discussion is typically not filled with phase. As the Daily Mail shares, our latest example comes courtesy of her reference to having gone through a ‘punk phase’ in her younger days.

Her mother, Ivana Trump, has penned a new book entitled ‘Raising Trump.’ The book includes a passage from Ivanka in which she recalls the phase she went through.

“During my punk phase in the nineties, I was really into Nirvana. My wardrobe consisted of ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts. One day after school, I dyed my hair blue. Mom wasn’t a fan of this decision,” she wrote. “She took one look at me and immediately went out to the nearest drugstore to buy a $10 box of Nice’n Easy. That night, she forced me to dye my hair back to blond. The color she picked out was actually three shades lighter than my natural color… and I have never looked back!”

Beyond the changes to her appearance, she was particularly taken aback by the passing of one of the icons of the era she grew up in.

“It wasn’t too long after this that Kurt Cobain, the singer, songwriter, and guitarist for Nirvana, committed suicide. It was a shock and I was distraught. Mom had no idea who Kurt Cobain was, and she sympathized only so much,” she continued. “After twenty-four hours of my crying inconsolably in my room, alone—major melodrama—Mom had to pull me out of there to go down to dinner.”

Her remembrance didn’t come across all that well with the masses on social media, and users quickly piled on as they passed around photos and memes.

“Ivanka Trump is punk af. There's nothing more anti-establishment and nonconforming than flirtatiously sitting on your dads lap as a teen,” shared one user.

“Ivanka Trump's alleged punk phase consisted of listening to Sk8er Boi and relating to the girl who said see you later boy,” wrote another commenter.

“Ivanka saying she had a punk phase bc she was into Nirvana is like Taylor Swift saying she had a goth phase bc she was into Avril Lavigne,” chimed in another user.

The conversation went on for some time, and it included a ton of speculation as to what constitutes ‘punk’ in Ivanka’s world.

“Stop saying Ivanka isn't punk. One time in 1996 she ate her salad with an oyster fork. WITH AN OYSTER FORK,” shared one commenter.

“Her punk phase involved heavy eyeliner, "Complicated" by Avril Lavigne & trying to ride a skateboard once while being trailed by chauffeur,” wrote another user.

“Punk as in Ashton Kutcher's show punk'd where you tricked everyone into thinking you were a caring human being? Cool cool,” added one poster.

Just another day in the life of Ivanka Trump, one of social media’s biggest lightning rods.
