As Donald Trump is being assailed by left-wingers for his lewd comments about women over 10 years ago, Ivanka Trump got some devastating news.
Women are boycotting her brand, and they aren’t being quite about it.
From the Daily Mail:
Women are turning on Ivanka Trump as she continues supporting
her father despite allegations of sexual harassment against him and a 2005 audio tape capturing him bragging in lewd terms that he can do whatever he wants to women.
Now, the growing group of women are boycotting her eponymous line of clothing, jewelry, perfume and accessories sold as part of the Ivanka Trump Collection.
They are also calling on the stores that carry the brand, including Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s, to stop selling it.
‘If Ivanka Trump had distanced herself from the campaign I would not be boycotting her,’ Shannon Coulter, who called on Americans to boycott the brand earlier this month, told the Guardian.
‘But something changed for me when that tape was released.’
Coulter, who shared her own experience of sexual harassment at the hands of a male superior, launched the hashtag ‘GrabYourWallet’ on October 11, a reference to Trump’s offensive ‘grab them by the p***y’ remark from the audio tape.
In the hot mic recording obtained by the Washington Post, Billy Bush laughed along in 2005 as Trump made the offensive remarks.
The Republican presidential candidate also detailed how he tried to seduce the married Nancy O’Dell, who was Bush’s co-host on Access Hollywood at the time.
So far, however, Ivanka’s band has apparently not seen any actual decrease in sales. A spokesperson for the brand said: ‘We are proud that our business is growing rapidly and that our brand resonates strongly with women who are inspired by our messaging and excited about the polished and chic solution-oriented products that we offer. Over the past year, many more women have discovered and become loyal to the brand, leading us to experience a significant year over year revenue growth.’
