Ivanka Trump recently ripped an art exhibit that displayed a lookalike of the first daughter vacuuming up crumbs.
During an interview with “Good Morning America,” Trump spoke out about her opinion on the exhibit.
“I think it’s a very sexist representation of a woman,” said Trump.
According to the Flashpoint Gallery, the exhibit is “a visual celebration of a contemporary feminine icon; a portrait of our own relationship to that figure; and a questioning of our complicity in her role-playing.”
However, Trump pointed out the issues with portraying a woman in a potentially demeaning scenario.

“What bothered me about this image is that they hired a 16-year-old girl to stand there and have crumbs thrown at her for two hours a day for six months,” Trump said. “So I have a real problem with that, and that is what infuriated me more than anything.”
She also tweeted out that she would rather be kind to other women instead of putting them down.
“Women can choose to knock each other down or build each other up. I choose the latter,” she tweeted.
