Let’s count the national atrocities that Ivanka Trump, a senior adviser to the President of the United States, has weathered with few public reprimands from her former and current social circle in the upper echelons of New York society.
There’s been Charlottesville, kids in cages, and the Muslim ban. Then there are the numerous rollbacks of many civil rights impacting people of color, women, and the LGBTQ community. The affront of the moment is the disinterest of the president in protecting the First Amendment rights of hundreds of thousands of Americans protesting law enforcement’s brutal treatment of African-Americans, who are two-and-a-half times more likely to be killed by the police than whites. And over the weekend the hashtag #ByeIvanka trended online in response to her tone-deaf video commencement address amid nationwide unrest.
With this backdrop, will the first daughter, the alleged mastermind of the infamous Bible pic, finally become radioactive to the largely white, wealthy fashion, tech, and media milieu she deems interesting and relevant enough to follow on social media?
