It's not a good look. Ivanka Trump was slammed via social media on Saturday, January 28, after posting a glamorous photo of herself and husband Jared Kushner amid headline-making protests against her father’s newly instated refugee ban.
The 35-year-old businesswoman shared the image around 9 p.m. ET, when protests outside some of the nation’s airports had reached a fever pitch. (Protesters were demanding the release of travelers who were detained following Trump’s so-called Muslim ban, which bars citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days.)
In the picture, the president’s daughter wears a metallic silver floor-length dress and smiles warmly as Kushner, 36, wraps his arm around her waist while wearing a black bow tie and tux.
Social-media users were less concerned about what the couple were wearing, however, and more invested in the implications of such a poorly timed tweet when the nation was rising up against the president’s immigration freeze.
Thousands of families are being ripped apart because of your father but that's a cute dress. Have fun at your party! https://t.co/yzuakVrEcy

.@IvankaTrump On top of everything so wildly offensive about posting this (you KNEW the reaction you'd get), your dress also looks awful.

Strangely tone-deaf to show off this sparkly, tin-foil eveningwear given current humanitarian crisis. Seems clueless.

“To our Muslim neighbors in the world: I & tens of millions of others are so very sorry,” filmmaker Michael Moore tweeted on Saturday, January 28. “The majority of Americans did not vote 4 this man.”
