Last Tuesday, First Lady Melania Trump invited students from Digital Pioneers Academy to join her in the White House Family Theater. As part of her “Be Best” initiative, the movie was about anti-bullying.

After the screening, the first lady shared the images on social media. People quickly picked up a little girl who instantly went viral for her demeanor.

First Lady Melania Trump was joined by 30 sixth grade students from Digital Pioneers Academy, a Washington DC charter school for the movie screening. Also joining them was Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.

At the White House Family Theater, the group watched the 2017 film “Wonder.” The movie is about a boy with Treacher Collins syndrome, a condition that causes facial deformities.

A spokesperson for Trump said:

“The movie celebrates October’s National Bullying Prevention Month by highlighting the importance of choosing kindness — a core belief of Mrs. Trump’s Be Best campaign.”

After the screening, Trump took to social media with images of the event. Instead of the initiative being the main focus, internet users noticed something odd in one of the photos.

One little girl stood out from the other students because of her demeanor. She was photographed starring right at the camera, arms crossed defiantly, and a bored expression on her face.

It’s not clear if the girl intended to come across as nonchalant as she did. On Instagram, New York Times columnist Charles Blow wrote:

“This little girl with her arms folded is all of our spirit animals… lol. #IReallyDontCareDoYou #BeBest…”

His hashtag was referencing Trump’s famous Zara jacket which she wore in June with the words “I really don't care, do u.” She was criticized at the time for wearing the jacket to visit children separated from their families at the Mexico border.

The children's shelter was where a handful of the 55 children it houses had been taken from their parents. The first lady’s surprise visit was meant to underline her compassion for children.

Instead, her visit was overshadowed by her choice of jacket. On Sunday, she and her husband, President Donald Trump, hosted a Halloween celebration at the White House.

The event was held for military families and local school children.
