Included with the purchase of a gold ear cuff, the note read, “‘Dear Ivanka, Thank you so much for your web order! We’re happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety organization, and the Hillary Clinton campaign.”
The note was signed, “Best, Jill + Sabine,” with the Instagram photo captioned, “Dear @ivankatrump, #thanksbutnothanks #payitFORWARD.”
There’s no internet outrage quite like the outrage of Trumpians. The owners of jewelry store acknowledged Ivanka Trump’s purchase, and posted this to Instagram, where upon there was a trumplosion, so to speak.
“Loooooosers ! Say buh bye to your company,” wrote ilianaruizjcj.

“Disgusting! Keep your political views to yourself. Run your business with class. Hope you loose [sic] lots of money from being so ignorant,” added valleygrrrl, with another commenter chiming in, “I’m utterly in shock of your display of professionalism. I hate to, no actually ladies I’m not afraid to say but karma is a b*tch and I know it will come back to hurt you.”
Things weren’t much better on Facebook, with Beau Patterson calling them, “Self-serving, tacky tw*ts,” and JJ Lars, adding, ” F*cking worthless c*ck suckers!”
Laura Fleckenstein advocated trying to damage their business, writing, “I just sent them about 100 emails. Block up there [sic] business.”
And no comment thread infested with Trump fans would be complete without an all-caps rant, courtesy of Susan Phipps: “EVERYONE BOYCOTT LADY GREY..WE HAVE NEVER OF HEARD OF THIS CHEAP UGLY JEWELRY.. BUT WHAT FEW CUSTOMERS THEY DO HAVE NEED TO BOYCOTT..RUDE..DISREPECTFUL UNGRATEFUL BUSINESS..AND REALLY UGLY JEWELRY! IT MUST BE HARD FOR THOSE WHO WROTE THIS LETTER TO BE SO JEALOUS OF A RICH..SUCCESSFUL..BEAUTIFULWOMAN LIKE IVANKA WHO IS LOVED BY MILLIONS! #boycottladygrey”
I’m afraid Ms. Phipps of the all caps rage is a fine example of someone who doesn’t take out 10 seconds to think anything through. “Cheap ugly jewelry.” “Really ugly jewelry.” Um, that cheap, really ugly jewelry was purchased to be worn by the “rich…successful…beautifulwoman” Ivanka Trump. Ooopsie.
