‘I don’t care about her nudes or sexual history and no one should.’

Melania Trump has been criticized by the media for many things: ripping off Michelle Obama’s speech at the RNC, apparently lying about having a college degree and being noticeably absent during President Trump’s first weeks in the White House.

But the First Lady has also become a bullying target for her sexuality—specifically, slut-shaming.

In a series of tweets, the model Emily Ratajkowski, who is 25, called out a reporter from the New York Times who evidently called Melania a “hooker” at a New York Fashion Week event on Feb. 12.

Regardless of her personal political beliefs, Emily made it clear that it is never OK to make degrading comments about women:

She’s absolutely right. People will obviously scrutinize Melania for how she handles her First Lady duties—but they need to leave her sexuality out of it. When we make slut-shaming comments, we’re permitting a culture of “disgusting sexist bullshit” to flourish.

Melania thanked Emily on Twitter, and also upheld the importance of standing up for other women in general:

Since Emily’s comments went viral, the New York Times reporter?—?Jacob Bernstein, a features writer for the paper?—?came forward and apologized for his comment:

Emily starred in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video and campaigned for Bernie Sanders.

Slut-shaming the First Lady won’t reverse the Muslim ban or Trump’s comments about sexual assault or anything else.

So thanks, Emily, for reminding us of the importance of sticking up for all women, regardless of political beliefs or who they’re associated with.
