Supermodel Slams Journalist For Making Disgusting Comments About Melania Trump

It appears to be next to impossible to get too far away from political talk these days. Social media, the airwaves and even in-person gatherings are chock full of people that are anxious to share their opinions with anyone that’ll listen. Those that prefer to stay away from political discussions will generally grin and bear it - at least until those opinions cross the line into something so incredibly outrageous that they can’t keep their mouths shut.

As the Independent Journal Review reports, that was the case for supermodel Emily Ratajkowski at a recent event she attended. She found herself seated next to an unidentified journalist from the New York Times, and that journalist found it to be perfectly appropriate to spout off at the mouth about the First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump. Ratajowski wasn’t having it, and she took to social media to express her displeasure and discomfort with the whole scene.

“Sat next to a journalist from the NYT last night who told me ‘Melania is a hooker.’ Whatever your politics it’s crucial to call this out for what it is: slut shaming. I don’t care about her nudes or sexual history and no one should,” Ratajkowski added.

Ratajowski was pretty fired up about the whole thing, and she would later add that “Gender specific attacks are disgusting sexist bull***t.”

While the reporter remains unidentified, it’s nonetheless a horrible look for the New York Times. There are no indications that the reporter is tasked with covering politics or the White House, but a blatant disregard for civility when it comes to a discussion about the First Lady or President points to a culture that tolerates that kind of behavior from its employees.

It’s little wonder that President Donald Trump feels like he can’t get a fair shake from the mainstream press. When a publication that’s considered to be a gold standard for journalism is unable to spot signs of that behavior from within its own ranks, it’s pretty hard to assume that same publication is reporting on things objectively and without bias.
