Updated Feb. 17, 2017, 1:30 p.m. PT: Sources close to Tiffany Trump say she is “horrified” by the attention she received during a Philipp Plein show at New York Fashion Week.
“Tiffany really does care about what people think about her,” an insider told People magazine. And no wonder. She’s a 23-year-old college grad. She can’t help it that her dad is a dumpster fire on a national scale.
Since she was ostracized at the show and no one would sit next to her, she’s gotten some more sympathetic attention from a few big names. Whoopi Goldberg offered to sit with her at future shows, and Plein defended her to TMZ.
“Tiffany Trump is not a politician, she’s a teenager,” he said.
Tiffany Trump doesn’t deserve to be ostracized from the fashion community just because her father is making decisions people disagree with. But that’s apparently exactly what happened at New York Fashion Week last weekend.
Fellow fashionistas reportedly avoided Trump like the plague, so much so that seats in the front row at the Philipp Plein show were left vacant because no one wanted to sit near her.
I’m all for a good peaceful protest, and I disagree with Donald Trump’s recent actions just as much as anyone else who reads the paper. But I don’t agree with taking out our collective frustrations on his daughter, who has absolutely no control over what her father says or does. She also has no decision-making power whatsoever within the White House. So grow up, people!
Luckily, it doesn’t appear all the hate stole Tiffany Trump’s thunder. She and her boyfriend rocked their way through NYFW with pictures along the way.
She also responded with a thank you for Whoopi Goldberg, who defended Trump amid all the fashion week hate.
“You know what, Tiffany, I’m supposed to go to a couple more shows. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m coming to sit with you,” Goldberg said on Wednesday morning’s episode of The View. “Because nobody’s talking politics. You’re looking at fashion! She doesn’t want to talk about her dad! She’s looking at the fashion!”
We don’t become a united country by being bullies to the children of the man who is a bully. That just makes no sense whatsoever.
