Well, this is awkward. As President Donald Trump faces backlash for his harsh executive order against immigrants, his daughter Ivanka Trump is…tweeting photos of herself in a $5,000 ball gown. Marie Antoinette much? Obviously, this is not okay, and you can see tweets accusing the First Daughter of being insensitive right here.
Ivanka Trump, 35, what were you thinking? The First Daughter tweeted and Instagrammed a photo on Jan. 29 — the same day protests broke out all over the country as refugees were detained at aiports — of herself and her husband Jared Kushner, 35, all dolled up for an event. Ivanka is wearing a $5,000 silver Carolina Herrera dress in the pic, and the response was instantaneous and furious.
“On top of everything so wildly offensive about posting this (you KNEW the reaction you’d get), your dress also looks awful,” one person tweeted. “Your father is responsible for two senior citizens with green cards being illegally detained at O’Hare for 10 hours.Have fun!” another wrote, referring to President Donald Trump‘s decision to bar all refugees from entering the U.S for 120 days.
Take a look at more angry reactions below, many of which include references to Marie Antoinette, who infamously advised her public to eat cake when they literally couldn’t afford bread:

@IvankaTrump so awful it just makes me wonder whether you really are just like your narcissistic father. As people suffer you are oblivious

As Ivanka shared her princess fairytale photo on social media, protests were happening at international airports all over the United States after President Trump signed an executive order barring Muslim refugees, immigrants and travelers. It’s unclear as to what event Ivanka and her husband were heading to, but one thing is for sure: she had pretty bad timing to showcase her wealth while over 100 people were having their lives and dreams shattered.
HollywoodLifers, where do you stand on this? Tell us what you think of Ivanka sharing a photo of herself in a ball gown amidst such controversy over her father’s actions.
