Ivana Trump’s new memoir “Raising Trump” has created waves as she continues her book tour, which made headlines last week after she referred to herself as the “first lady” during an interview. But it’s her daughter Ivanka Trump who was being criticized this week for claiming in the book that she had a “punk phase.”

“Mom wasn’t a fan of this decision. She took one look at me and immediately went out to the nearest drugstore to buy a $10 box of Nice’n Easy,” Ivanka Trump wrote in one chapter of her mother’s book. “That night, she forced me to dye my hair back to blond. The color she picked out was actually three shades lighter than my natural color…and I have never looked back!”

The presidential daughter also wrote that she wore “ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts,” which appeared to insinuate that her chosen wardrobe aligned with a punk aesthetic.

Many on Twitter criticized the advisor to the president on Twitter for the comments.

In addition to her comments on her wardrobe preferences, Ivanka Trump wrote that she was deeply affected by the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.

“It was a shock and I was distraught. Mom had no idea who Kurt Cobain was, and she sympathized only so much,” she wrote, describing her reaction to news of his death. “After twenty-four hours of my crying inconsolably in my room, alone — major melodrama — Mom had to pull me out of there to go down to dinner.”

In spite of what Ivanka Trump described as her “punk phase,” Ivana Trump reportedly enforced strict rules for her children.

“Over my dead body would Ivanka be like many of my friends' kids, going to discos and staying out until four a.m.,” she wrote of her parenting, according to Business Insider. “My kids didn't have any money to blow on clubs, drugs, or car services.”
