The Internet Turned Donald Trump’s ‘Nasty Woman’ Jab Into a Feminist Style Statement

Ms. Clinton, if ya nasty! At the Wednesday, October 19, presidential debate, the internet took away more than the political points from candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. A massive number of memes and merchandise have unfolded from the barbs they traded (check out our Us Weekly mashup above for proof). In addition to calling Mexican immigrants “hombres,” Trump also insulted Clinton with two words heard ’round the world.

“Such a nasty woman,” he muttered as the secretary of state discussed Social Security and Medicare funding. Trump, who insisted that nobody respects women more than he does shortly before, didn’t just launch a trending topic on Twitter: He started a movement. A supporter purchased the domain, redirecting the website to Clinton’s own. Spotify revealed that streams of Janet Jackson’s ’80s song “Nasty” have risen 250 percent since the televised event. Nasty Gal clothing founder Sophia Amoruso even changed the header on her site, crossing out “Gal” and replacing it with “Woman.”

But that’s not the only fashion statement born from the jab. After the debate, online retailer Google Ghost debuted T-shirts with the phrase printed on top of a red heart. “Seriously, fuck Trump,” the description reads. “50% of proceeds from these shirts will go to Planned Parenthood.”
