Actress and model Emily Ratajkowski is known for her public comments when it comes to things she doesn’t agree with and this past weekend was no different.
After sitting front row at the Altuzarra Fall show at New York Fashion Week, Ratajkowski took to Twitter to reveal she sat next to a New York Times reporter who said “Melania is a hooker” and told the Twitterverse that she will not stand for such “sexist” comments.
Since the 25-year-old took to Twitter to express her concerns, the Times has reprimanded the reporter in question.
“At a party last night, a Times reporter who does not cover Washington or politics, referred to an unfounded rumour regarding Melania Trump,” a Times spokesperson said in a statement to POLITICO. “The comment was not intended to be public, but it was nonetheless completely inappropriate and should not have occurred. Editors have talked to the reporter in question about the lapse.”
Trump is currently suing the U.K. media group that started the rumour that she had once been a “high-end escort.” Another media group has since retracted and issued an apology for repeating the rumours about the First Lady on its blog.
The First Lady herself responded to Ratajkowski’s tweet, issuing a tweet of her own. “Applause to all women around the world who speak up, stand up and support other women!” wrote Melania Trump, adding the hashtags #PowerOfEveryWoman and #PowerOfTheFirstLady.
