Melania Trump mocked for 'dark' photo in birthday shoutout to son Barron Trump
Over the weekend, former first lady Melania Trump celebrated the birthday of her son Barron Trump. However, in Mrs. Trump’s post marking her son’s birthday, netizens questioned the former first lady’s choice of photo.
The former first lady gave a special shoutout to her son on Twitter on Saturday, greeting him a happy birthday through the platform. Mrs. Trump attached a photo of two balloons that read “15,” similar to the post the former first lady made for her son last year. “Happy Birthday BWT,” tweeted Mrs. Trump, the initials of her son, Barron William Trump. While her fans and followers joined in on wishing the youngest Trump a happy birthday in her post, there are users that questioned the former first lady’s photo choice.
One user replied that the former first lady could have chosen a brighter-colored photo to celebrate her son’s birthday, describing it as “morbid.” Another user pointed out how the balloons that spelled out the son’s age appeared to be dripping blood, also touching on Melania’s initiative, Be Best, that she still plans to continue even after leaving the White House in January. “How festive! Nothing quite says Happy Birthday to a 15-year-old quite like a black balloon that appears to be dripping blood. But then… #BeBest never really made it either,” they replied.
Recently, the former first lady was brought into a feud between rapper Cardi B and conservative pundit Candace Owens. Mrs. Trump’s nude photos from her days as a model were shared by the rapper following Owens’ criticism of Cardi’s performance of “WAP” at the Grammys. However, the platform has said it will not take down the photos of the former first lady as it does not violate the terms of service.
Melania’s nude photos were from a photoshoot with a French magazine back in 1996. The photos then resurfaced during now-former President Donald Trump’s campaign back in 2016. Cardi previously shared one of the photos in 2020 in a tweet that has since been deleted.
Owens criticized Cardi’s “WAP” performance, saying that the song “encourages women to “strip themselves of dignity.” The rapper since responded to disagree, saying that men will treat women how women will allow men to treat them.
