Ivanka Trump Just Followed Rihanna On Twitter—And Her Fans Are Not Having It

She was recently called a hypocrite for praising US workers as being “the best”, while using foreign workers to produce her goods. She also gave a talk about female empowerment in India, while employing factories that violated human rights of workers.

Then there’s the whole messy business of the Trump name being tied to White Supremacy, something that doesn’t sit well with a lot of Americans. 

Which is probably why a lot of Rihanna’s fans are upset that Ivanka Trump started following the pop star on Twitter.

Rihanna’s been pretty vocal about her distaste of Donald Trump and his policies.

Back in January of 2017 when Trump implemented the unconstitutional travel ban, Rihanna was pretty vocal about how she felt regarding the ruling.

Then there was the singer’s criticism of how Trump handled the crisis in Puerto Rico.

So people are really flustered as to why Ivanka would elect to follow BadGirlRiRi.

People are waiting in anticipation to see how she’s going to react to her new follower.

They’re hoping it’s along the lines of this:

How do you think Rihanna will react? Is this a huge media opportunity the singer won’t be able to pass up?

Or should be drop the ban hammer?

Ivanka Trump Claims She Went Through A 'Punk Phase,' And People Are Skeptical

Chances are that if you were anything between a tween and a teen in the 90s, you probably had a punk phase. The Offspring, Paramore, Green Day, and a bunch of other bands often frequented either your CD player or cutting edge 128mb mp3 player. Eventually the punk lifestyle would grab hold and everything from temporary tattoos to animesque hair colors fell under the ‘punk’ moniker for most parents, which includes Ivanka Trump’s mother as told in the pages of her new memoir.

Ivanka wrote about it in her mother Ivana’s new book Raising Trump and said that at one point she dyed her hair blue and was ‘really into Nirvana.’ The thing is, no one is really buying it.

She didn’t provide any photos so folks had to use their imagination.

There was also a problem with her alleged punk obsession.

It was pretty evident for people that actually did dye their hair blue and listen to Nirvana that Ivanka’s punk rock phase was nothing more than a cheap attempt at trying to relate to millennials.

OB-GYN Destroys Ivanka Trump For Talking About Post-Partum Depression On Dr. Oz

Ivanka Trump was on theDr. Ozshow talking about her postpartum depression as the Trump administration actively seeks to eliminate reproductive and mental health coverage for millions of women.

An OB-GYN called attention to this conflict of interest on Twitter and everyone agrees with her.

OB/GYN, Veronica Ades really pinned Ivanka on this stunt of hers. She explained why Ivanka talking about this particular issue is so wrong right now.

So many people were happy to see this conflict of interests aired on Twitter.

The doctor had some things to say about Ivanka’s intentions as well.

People were hoping for anyone but Ivanka to make this issue aware to the public because Ivanka won’t stand up for it, she will just whine about it apparently.

We get the message loud and clear Ivanka, you don’t genuinely care to fight for the cause.

This will make it clear to the American people how much they are being played by this administration.

This Queer Chef Has Zero Interest In Being Profiled By Ivanka Trump's Website

This Queer Chef Has Zero Interest In Being Profiled By Ivanka Trump’s Website

Chef Angela Dimayuga was surprised to see freelance writer Adi Heyman slide into her DMs recently.  “I would love to conduct an interview (via telephone/email) with you spotlighting your work as a strong female entrepreneur,” wrote Heyman, calling her work “extraordinary.” 

The catch to all this positive press? It was for Ivanka Trump’s website. 

Heyman went on to reassure Dimayuga that the website was “a non-political platform of empowerment for modern working women.” Dimayuga is the executive chef at Mission Chinese Food, so she has certainly accomplished extraordinary things. However, she disagreed with Heyman’s characterization of an Ivanka property.

In a long response which Dimayuga screenshot for Instagram, she laid into the idea of Ivanka Trump profiting off her story in any way. Dimayuga is queer, the child of immigrants, and a woman of color. In her letter she says that any amplification of her voice through Ivanka’s publication wouldn’t put a dent in all the techniques the Trump family is using to silence people like her all over the country. Here’s her letter in full:

Hi Adi, Thank you for thinking of me. I’m glad you are a fan of my work so much that you want to provide more visibility for my career to inspire “other working women.” However, I’m for women who actually empower other women. I don’t believe thatIvankaTrump.comis truly “a non-political platform of empowerment for [women]”. 

So long as the name Trump is involved, it is political and frankly, an option for theIvankaTrump.combusiness to make a profit. I don’t see anything empowering about defunding Planned Parenthood, barring asylum from women refugees, rolling back safeguards for equal pay, and treating POC/LGBT and the communities that support these groups like second class citizens.

As a queer person of color and daughter of immigrant parents I am not interested in being profiled as an aspirational figure for those that support a brand and a President that slyly disparages female empowerment.Sharing my story with a brand and family that silences our same voices is futile. Thank you for the consideration. 

The Huffington Postreports that Dimayuga is even more aware of intersectional politics because of her job as a chef, as cooking is often a male dominated field. She told them, “It’s important for me to acknowledge the intersectional community in which I’ve been able to creatively thrive in.” In return, she’s gotten an enormous response on her post, including a comment from celebrity chef Antony Bourdain who wrote, “My hero!” in the Instagram comments.

”The sheer number of people that have been supportive just shows that there is a stronger and bigger community than I see on the day-to-day that are willing to actually help, protect, support women and those in marginalized communities,” Dimayuga toldThe Huffington Post, adding, “I’m not interested in a catfight―I just found an opportunity to speak and share my narrative and my truth to vocalize my values and my own integrity. For me, it was an opportunity to say I belonged to a community where I hope to enrich the different spheres I live in and to cultivate empowering environments that are safe for us.” 

Though Dimayuga hasn’t heard back from Heyman, she got a bunch of new followers from her post. Including Ivanka Trump herself. Guess Ivanka momentarily heard at least one new voice, probably because it was shouting, “HELL NO.”
