Supermodel rats out reporter who called Melania a ‘hooker’ at Fashion Week event, NY Times reprimands ‘slut shaming’

An unidentified reporter was reprimanded by the New York Times for calling first lady Melania Trump a “hooker” at a New York event.

“At a party last night, a Times reporter who does not cover Washington or politics, referred to an unfounded rumor regarding Melania Trump,” a Times spokesperson told Politico in a statement Monday.

“The comment was not intended to be public, but it was nonetheless completely inappropriate and should not have occurred. Editors have talked to the reporter in question about the lapse.”

Supermodel Emily Ratajkowski was seated next to the reporter during a New York Fashion Week event on Sunday and commented on the remark in a series of tweets, calling the comment “disgusting sexist bull—t.”

The 25-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model slammed the “slut-shaming” of the first lady, who once posed nude in photos during her own modeling career.

Trump filed a lawsuit against the UK’s Daily Mail for an article including the rumor that she was once a “high-end escort.”

In another tweet, Ratajkowski called out gender-based attacks.

It seems many were in agreement with the supermodel and the actions by The New York Times in response to their reporter’s inappropriate comments.
