  • Melania Trump's past career
  • Melania Trump as FLOTUS

Melania Trump receives support against those slut shaming her.

The first lady is in hot water after she defended her son Barron following the mere mention of his name by Pamela Karlan. Things got worse for the FLOTUS when she kept her silence after her husband, President Donald Trump, attacked Greta Thunberg, who was hailed Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

Several critics of Melania called her and her “Be Best” campaign out when she failed to defend the 16-year-old activist from the POTUS’ bullying. However, others attacked under the belt by calling her indecent words and posting her nude photos.

However, many on social media spoke up for the first lady and blasted those who slut-shamed her. “Calling women prostitutes to demean them is insulting to all women, and calling Melania one is likely insulting to many excellent sex workers,” Jennifer Wright, author of History Books, wrote on Twitter.

Another user agreed and said that it pisses her off when people try to demean the first lady using her old photos. “Her body, her choice,” @skooniebird she added.

Another Twitter user said that while she doesn’t agree with Melania supporting her husband Donald, she also discouraged slut shaming the FLOTUS and spreading her nude photos.

“I’m really over liberals slut-shaming Melania so viciously. Sex work is work, and if you were smart, you could criticize her for a hundred other glaring faults EASY without bringing up her nude modeling career,”  @resastephens posted.

Another Twitter user described Melania as “genius.” She added that the first lady can speak five languages fluently, and she found it ironic that liberal women are applauded when they show how proud and in control they are with their bodies but slut shame Melania. “Double standards,” she concluded.

Melania has been subjected to slut shaming for years. In 2016, another netizen defended the FLOTUS from the same issue and said that it was not cool to post naked photos of the first lady just to “shame, dehumanize and degrade her.”

Scott Charles added that he was bothered when people slut shame Melania because there are plenty of other legitimate reasons to dislike her. Scott Menor, a robotics and machine learning entrepreneur agreed. According to him, there are other reasonable criticisms agains the FLOTUS.

Before she married Donald and became the first lady, Melania was a model. In 2000, she graced the infamous British GQ in nude. When asked about it, the FLOTUS acknowledged her past and said, “I think people will always judge” but explained that it was only part of the job she was doing.
