First Lady Melania Trump's spokeswoman has slammed a new music video featuring Atlanta rapper T.I. and a look-alike of the first lady, who is seen stripping in The Oval Office. The spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said that the video was "disgusting" and has urged everyone to boycott it, according to reports.
The preview of the video, shared by T.I. on Twitter, shows him sitting in the presidential chair and lighting a cigar as a woman, with a striking resemblance to the First Lady, walks in and performance a racy striptease in front of the rapper.
The one-minute video, also shows the Melania look-alike wearing her infamous khaki jacket with "I really don't care, do u?" printed on it and a pair of black stilettos. The First Lady had received widespread criticism for being insensitive as she wore the jacket while visiting migrant children in Texas, in June.
Grisham slammed the video in a tweet and called for a public boycott: ".How is this acceptable? #disgusting #boycott." The tweet was also retweeted by Melania Trump on Saturday.
T.I.'s new video is not getting positive responses from other Twitter users either as one of them said: "Just lost a fan T.I. How about I shoot a video like that with Tiny? I've overlooked a lot of your behavior but this is just too disrespectful to be ignored. You are despicable."
Another woman on the social media site said: "No words can describe... Seriously I can't believe my eyes right now." We are not just talking about a lady, she is the FIRST LADY of the US... the equivalent of the Queen of Spain or the UK," she added.
The video was uploaded by T.I. on Twitter as a promotional teaser for his new album 'Dime Trap' on Friday. Shortly after the release of the video, Melania Trump had claimed, in her first televised interview as the First Lady, that she was a victim of bullying.
"I could say I’m the most bullied person in the world," the first lady had said in an exclusive interview with the ABC last Friday.
