- Ivanka Trump took to social media on Tuesday evening to share images of her three young children playing a game of peek-a-boo
- She shared a photo of Arabella, six, Joseph, four, and Theodore, one – attempting to hide under her flawless red, floor-length gown
- Critics called the photos ‘creepy’ and ‘gross’ and mercilessly mocked her caption after she incorrectly wrote ‘peak-a-boo’ instead of ‘peek-a-boo’
- Ivanka has yet to comment on the criticism, and on Wednesday she was at the White House watching her father address reporters before a cabinet meeting
Ivanka Trump is being raked over the coals for sharing a series of photos of her three children playing peek-a-boo under her red ball gown, as critics call the photos ‘creepy’ and mock her incorrect use of the word ‘peak.’
The 36-year-old first daughter may have thought she was just posting a few cute snapshots of herself playing with her kids on Tuesday evening, but many Twitter users slammed her for letting her children play under her dress.
‘Oh good lord, there is so much wrong with this picture,’ one Twitter user wrote. ‘Are you seriously so utterly tone deaf than to post a picture of boys looking up your dress?’
Or is it a dig about men hiding behind their momma’s skirts? Or should we just go … how many boys can you fit in your skirt? #TMI,’ the person added.
Ivanka took to Twitter yesterday evening to post an image of her children – Arabella, six, Joseph, four, and Theodore, one – attempting to hide under her flawless red, floor-length gown.
The fashion mogul shared a similar image to her Instagram page showing an adorable Theodore sitting on the ground at her feet while in his pajamas in the family’s living room.
Ivanka captioned both posts – simply writing ‘Peak-a-boo.’
n addition to calling the pictures ‘creepy’ and ‘gross,’ many Twitter users mercilessly made fun of her for incorrectly writing ‘peak’ instead of ‘peek.’
‘So creepiness runs in the family. Kids playing in your dress? BTW, it’s peek not mountain “peak”. God help us,’ one Twitter user wrote, another person named Cora Mae added: ‘You can’t even spell. By the way, this picture is creepy.’
‘That is a bit creepy…’ the Resist Hypocrisy Twitter account commented. ‘No one thinks letting young boys under a dress where they can look up is a bit weird?’
One person pointed out that most children know the difference between ‘peek’ and ‘peak,’ writing: ‘My 7 year old just peeked over my shoulder, read this and said “That’s ‘peak’ like a mountain, not ‘peek’ like ‘I see you’.” God bless our public ed system.’
Cassandra Paige responded by noting that Ivanka is highly educated and attended the Chapin School, an elite all-girls school in Manhattan, and Choate Rosemary Hall, a famous boarding school in Connecticut.
‘Except she went to expensive private school. I went to public school and I know the difference between peak and peek,’ she wrote.
Other people used the photo as an opportunity to bring up the allegations of sexual assault against her father, President Trump, who was famously recorded telling Billy Bush that he grabs women ‘by the p****y.’
‘Okay Ivaka, peak means the highest point or value of something,’ Jesse Blanchard wrote. ‘Peek is something your father buys beauty pageant to do.’
Is this how the Trumps play? And you think this is normal?’ Donna Connelly asked.
Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, was also slammed in the comments section, with many insisting that he was headed to jail.
President Trump’s son-in-law was thrown into the heart of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe after being implicated as the official who told Michael Flynn to contact Russian officials on behalf of the White House.
While commenting on the photo of Ivanka’s children huddled under her dress, one Twitter user asked: ‘Is Jared hiding under their too? You know, from Mueller?’
