Viral Jewelers' Shocking Note to Ivanka: Money from Your Purchase Will Go to Hillary
A New York jewelry company is facing a social media backlash after publicizing a politically-charged note they included with an online order made by Ivanka Trump, USA Today reported.
After receiving the order from Ivanka Trump for a gold-plated bronze ear cuff, Lady Grey attached a note to Trump's daughter, a fashion designer herself, boasting how they donated the proceeds from her sale to various progressive causes and Hillary Clinton's campaign.
Designers Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader then proudly posted the note to Instagram.
Thank you so much for your web order!
We’re happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety organization and the Hillary Clinton campaign.
We hope you enjoy your new Lady Grey #helixcuff.
Best, Jill and Sabine
Martinelli told fashion website “The Cut” that they were “flattered” to receive an order from Trump, but their “social and political views couldn’t be further from those of the [Donald] Trump campaign.”
Instagram user 'Davkadeergirl' wrote that the designers “threw their integrity out the door to get some fame,” while 'papi_chica' called the move “pathetic and tacky.”
Others, however, applauded the move: “Rock on, Lady Grey,” user ‘babesforhillary’ responded.
