Tom Ford, the famous fashion designer, has recently slammed a fake tweet that spread online like wildfire, in which he supposedly called Melania Trump a "glorified escort" with "bad taste in men."


On Tuesday, March 19, 2019, a spokeswoman for Ford took to his official Twitter account to say that the statement being shared online was fabricated and fake.

It has been reported that the person responsible for spreading the fake quote has already come to public to apologize, saying that there was no intention to harm Ford.


The original tweet, which has since been deleted, read "Tom Ford refuses to dress Melania Trump: 'I have no interest in dressing a glorified escort who steals speeches and has bad taste in men.'


The fake piece was based on something that Ford told the "The View" back in 2016. During his appearance on the show, the designer shared that he wouldn't dress the First Lady because she wasn't "really his image."

Besides being a Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential elections, Ford said that his clothes were far too expensive for Melania to wear.



Ford argued that, as representatives of the American people, the President and the First Lady should wear more affordable designs so Americans could relate to them.

“My clothes are made in Italy, they’re very, very expensive. I don’t think most women or men in our country can relate to that, and I think the first lady or the president should represent all people.”

But even though Ford claimed Melania should wear cheaper designs, the First Lady has become known for her chic taste when it comes to fashion and wears items that reach six digits.

For example, during the second day of the G20 Summit, Melania joined the world leaders' wives wearing a beautiful cream polka dot dress that cost nearly $10,000.
