White House Calls for T.I. Boycott Over Racy ‘Melania Trump’ Video

Stephanie Grisham, the White House spokesperson for First Lady Melania Trump, called for a boycott of Atlanta-rapper T.I. on Saturday.

On Friday night, T.I. uploaded a promotional video for his 10th studio album, Dime Trap, featuring an actress resembling the 48-year-old stripping in the Oval Office.

“Dear 45, I ain’t Kanye,” T.I. wrote on Twitter. The outspoken rapper was referencing the “repulsive” and “disgraceful” meeting between ‘Ye and President Donald Trump last week.

In the clip, after President Trump seemingly leaves the White House, the woman performing as FLOTUS removed her jacket, which reads “I Really Don’t Care Do U?”, and stands naked over T.I.

The phrase is the same as the one seen on the  Zara jacket Melania wore during her trip to visit migrant children in Texas in June. She was criticized for the message the outerwear could have given the children.

Grisham reacted to the clip writing in a retweet, “How is this acceptable? #disgusting #boycottT.I. @Tip.”

During a recent interview with ABC News, the first lady said she wore the jacket to hit back at the liberal media that is more focused on what she wears than her policies or efforts.
