Melania Trump just got a very public apology from a journalist who called her a "hooker" at New York Fashion Week.

New York Times' Jacob Bernstein - son of screenwriter Nora Ephron and famed reporter Carl Bernstein - posted his mea culpa on Twitter Tuesday morning, after model Emily Ratajkowski put the publication on blast for something he said to her at a runway show over the weekend.

"At a party last night, a Times reporter who does not cover Washington or politics, referred to an unfounded rumor regarding Melania Trump," the New York Times previously said in a statement. "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."

Ratajkowski exposed Bernstein's actions on Twitter Monday, but didn't name him at the time.

Trump's tweets still managed to generate some backlash though, as her followers called her out for not speaking up "for the women who your husband bragged about assaulting."

"We did speak up. It was called the #WomensMarchOnWashington and everyone called it a riot, due to your hubs crappy orders," another popular tweet added.
