Melania Trump's spokeswoman called for the boycotting of rapper T.I. after he posted a video which featured a look-alike of First Lady Melania Trump stripping in the oval office as he sat on the office table.

In a promotional video for his latest album, T.I. had a woman that looks like the first lady strip in the Oval Office while wearing a jacket called "I really don't care do u?", which resembles the jacket that Trump wore during a visit to migrant children in Texas earlier this year. Recently, she tried to spin the negative news cycles by saying that she actually wore the jacket to "troll reporters".

Her spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, tweeted about the video, asking how it was "acceptable". She then called for people to boycott T.I. for the disrespect he has shown Melania, which in turn degrades her as a person.

Last Friday, T.I., or Clifford Harris in real life, tweeted that he was not Kanye West and that he was done working with Kanye due to his support for president 45, Donald Trump.

Fox News was able to receive a statement from Grisham about the issue, who said: 

 "Like it or not, she is the First Lady and this is the White House. It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics. These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country - it needs to stop."

In turn, Melania also shared that she is the most bullied person in the world, and this is why she has a "Be Best" initiative that hopes of educating children about social media and online behavior, so that when they grow up, they know how to properly deal with issues concerning them and the internet.

People have always been critical of the things the First Lady does, including what she wears on state gatherings. Critics often judge the way she dresses or the way she reacts to things, and while it seems as if she is untouchable, she also gets affected by the things people throw at her.

After all, she's human just like every single one of us.
