Melania Trump’s director of communications, Stephanie Grisham, is clapping back at T.I. after the king of the south dropped an explicit music video that featured a Melania look-alike stripping for him in a mock oval office. The visuals come on the heels of Kanye West’s (who T.I. labeled a “sambo”) controversial visit to the White House.

The look-alike is wearing a replica of Melania’s infamous “I Really Don’t Care” jacket before stripping down and exposing her breasts a la resurfaced photos of her bearing all in a photo shoot. Since tweeting a snippet of the video, it has over one million views and sparked outrage from the republican party. Stephanie Grisham, Melania’s spokeswoman, tweeted,

According to TMZ, Grisham released a statement to clarify her tweet,

“Like it or not, she is the First Lady and this is the White House. It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics.”

She added, “These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country – it needs to stop.”

It took no time for #BlackTwitter to come to T.I.’s defense and denounce Grisham’s response as hypocrisy.

As deeply as our disdain for agent orange and first lady orange runs, we’re having a hard time accepting T.I.’s video as effective. And we question its purpose. T.I. picks and chooses when to respect women, as we’ve seen with his misogynistic comments and problematic marital behavior. Whatever his video’s purpose,  it got the people talking and listening to his latest single. Cause we surely weren’t listening before.
