Supermodel Stands Up For Melania Trump, Slams Journalist’s Repulsive Comments

There's a lot of hypocrisy going on these days due to political passions. People who protest and tweet and make impassioned pleas about defending women and treating women with respect often fall silent when women of a different political opinion are insulted. Liberals who criticize sexist behavior towards women in general will sometimes even display that same behavior towards conservative women. One supermodel proved this weekend that she cannot be called a hypocrite.

Emily Ratajkowski turned to Twitter to share an experience and call out a New York Times reporter after the reporter attacked First Lady Melania Trump. Ratajkowski tweeted the entire exchange in just a couple of tweets.

"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," the super model said in a series of tweets.

Ratajkowski refused to name the reporter in question, but she also refused to remain silent on the comment. "Gender specific attacks are disgusting sexist bulls--t," she said.

The model's sentiments are not a surprise. Melania Trump has been a target of the media ever since her husband, Donald Trump, began running for president. She's already filed lawsuits against a blogger and the Daily Mail for reporting rumors that she was once a high-priced 'call girl.' Despite there being no evidence behind the story, journalists have continued to keep the rumors alive with implications that the FLOTUS’s former career went a lot farther than just posing nude for the camera.

In light of this, it’s no surprise that trust in the media is at an all-time low. Recent polls showed that in matters of trust, the media falls even lower than President Donald Trump, arguably the most unpopular president in history. That’s saying something; journalists might want to look at themselves in a mirror.
