First Lady Melania Trump was not amused when word hit the curb that Atlanta rap mogul T.I. featured a woman who looks a lot like her, even wearing a version of Melania’s now-infamous “I really don’t care, do U?” jacket. Midway through the vid, the lookalike begins to behave naughtily and start stripping in an Oval Office that T.I. is inside of for some reason.
The First Lady’s spokesperson called the video “disgusting”.
“Like it or not, she is the first lady and this is the White House,” Melania Trump’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, is quoted as saying to CNN in a statement. “It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her in this way simply because of politics. These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country ― it needs to stop.”
Grisham urged a boycott of the rapper’s music, which is laughable since its hard to imagine T.I. has many fans who also are fans of Melania and her hubby.
T.I. recently released his 10th studio album, Dime Trap, which has become one of the rapper’s slowest selling albums to date. It entered the charts at #13 and has struggled to sell more than 10,000 copies to date, according to Hits Daily Double.
As of this morning, the album has slid to #19. So a little controversy might be helpful to Tip.
T.I. is no fan of Melania’s husband, and he reminded the POTUS that he “ain’t Kanye”.
President Trump has not yet said anything publicly about the controversy.
