Ivanka Trump Slammed for Insensitive Gala Post Amid Protests Against Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban

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.

Earlier in the day, celebrities took to social media to denounce Donald Trump’s Muslim ban, calling it everything from “shameful” to “evil” to “heartless.”

“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.”
