Melania Trump Threatens Lawsuit Over Billboards Using Her Image to Advertise English Class
Melania Trump reportedly threatened to sue over billboards in Croatia with her photograph and the slogan, "Just imagine how far you can go with a little bit of English."
The advertisements were meant to encourage people to learn English at a language school in the Croatian capital of Zagreb, and featured a picture of the first lady at the Republican National Convention in 2016.
A spokeswoman for the American Institute in Zagreb apologized for the billboards, saying they were not intended to mock the first lady but rather to show her as a role model.
Trump's lawyers were not satisfied.
“They used Mrs. Trump's image and personality for commercial purposes without her consent, which is a breach of the advertising code and the law on obligations,” said White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.
Trump, a former model from Slovenia, hired a law firm in her native country to prevent misuse of her image there.
