Online trolls have branded the First Lady of the US, Melania Trump, as a former sex worker and porn star on Wikipedia-linked sites, which are usually used by children. 

Internet users who visit several websites from the Wikimedia family were exposed to some strange and lewd facts and descriptions about Melania. As reported by Wikipedia criticism project, Wikipediocracy, trolls had specifically targeted Melania's page and had edited her entry on Wikidata to describe her as a "former sex worker and porn star". 

The description was online for around nine days in June and also appeared on Wikimedia Commons and Simple-English Wikipedia, whose primary audience is children and students, according to Sputnik.

The trolls also targeted several other people mostly actors and pulled the stunt on unsuspecting actors. 'Game of Thrones' actor, Jason Momoa had been described as a "homosexualiser of men" in the Spanish version of his page. The description was live for around five weeks during the summer. Actress Ana Villafañe was called a "pornographic actress" for around nine weeks. 

Bollywood actress Sara Ali Khan was described as an "Indian pornographic actress" for around four weeks. 

Very recently, Donald Trump slammed former Ukrainian ambassador Marie Yovanovitch on Twitter when she testified in the public hearing. As Yovanivitch testified, POTUS called her out on Twitter. He shared, "Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go?" Post this, many Twitter users started to tweet to the first lady and highlighted her anti-cyberbullying 'Be Best' campaign. 

One user responded to Donald Trump's rant saying, "This tweet brought to you by the BeBest campaign". Another user shared, "How is your husband’s behavior congruent with BeBest?" "I’m guessing Melania’s 'anti-bullying campaign' took a public relations hit today with a sitting President live-bullying a US Ambassador during sworn testimony. The opposite of BeBest," Rob Anderson had written.
