Jane Lynch and Billy Eicher among celebrities calling out the first lady for her tone-deaf fashion choice.
Melania Trump made another big fashion faux pas on Thursday, heading out to visit a Texas detention center for migrant children while wearing a jacket emblazoned with the phrase, "I REALLY DON'T CARE DO U?" on the back.
While some were skeptical of Photoshop, a spokesperson for FLOTUS confirmed that she did indeed wear the jacket in question. "There was no hidden message," the spokesperson said. "After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe."
Extremely Ron Howard Voice: They did.
Twitter was immediately flooded with outraged reactions from celebrities, media personalities and regular old Joes, despite the fact Melania did change into another outfit during her plane ride to the U.S.-Mexico border. Eventually, Donald Trump even chimed in, negating the spokesperson's statement by saying, "'I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?' written on the back of Melania's jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!"
The jacket, which was first called out by The Daily Mail, is reportedly from Zara, where it retails for $39.
Below is just a sampling of the Twitter furor:
They are right. Not hidden at all. She wore her message across her back. Shame on her. https://t.co/wKyyX0ASZH— Ava DuVernay (@ava) June 21, 2018
Melania Trump attempts her fashion spin on let them eat cake! Meanwhile toddlers are locked in cages. This administration is a who’s who of Classless bottom dwellers.— Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) June 21, 2018
No message? The jacket literally has a message on it. How does no one running this country understand the meaning of optics. Jesus! https://t.co/thBD9XxxCb— Jesse Tyler Ferguson (@jessetyler) June 21, 2018

She’s disgusting. They all are. Impeachment isn’t even enough honestly. https://t.co/HoanZLP4Sf— billy eichner (@billyeichner) June 21, 2018
Is @FLOTUS so unfamiliar with English that she doesn’t know what the back of her jacket today says? That her initiative #BeBest is grammatically incorrect? Is there NO ONE ON HER STAFF to help her with these things?— Jane Lynch (@janemarielynch) June 21, 2018
I just can’t. Tone deaf much? https://t.co/nGhWkw5PeA— Sunny Hostin (@sunny) June 21, 2018
These people are beyond fiction. Nobody could dream them up in their worst nightmares. Now imagine supporting them so you could turn your fifty billion into 70 billion. How much can anyone spend? How can someone like Murdoch, so close to the end, not care about people? https://t.co/5wFjpf7XRy— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 21, 2018
Is this a joke? I didn’t think anyone could be that out of touch with reality... https://t.co/F9MowJDPnF— Lili Reinhart (@lilireinhart) June 21, 2018
The jacket Melanie wore on the way to meeting the kids held in internment camps has “I don’t really care, do you?” written on the back.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) June 21, 2018
Fuck these people and fuck anyone who says we should be polite to them or maintain decorum. pic.twitter.com/Velfj2Nr4j
Fuck Melanie...she deserves no sympathy...even if she divorces him she was a complicit part of this whole operation. And let's not forget, she was a birther.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) June 21, 2018
No, at this point I’m done giving her the benefit of the doubt. https://t.co/yXbDvOrPt6— Michael Ian Black (@michaelianblack) June 21, 2018

Under any circumstances the First Lady of the United States shouldn't wear a jacket that says this. But to wear it today on her way to visit a shelter full of migrant children is straight up trolling. THEY HAVE TOLD US WHO THEY ARE. BELIEVE THEM. https://t.co/wLiZi6U92K— Leslie Grossman (@MissLeslieG) June 21, 2018
Wait, wait, wait. I just got wifi to work on my flight. This Melania jacket thing cannot be real. Can't. I'm choosing to not believe it.— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) June 21, 2018
Wow, seems like a legit question for any first lady -- but especially one who doesn't choose her clothing by accident! https://t.co/v4uUPAOeA9— Abby D. Phillip (@abbydphillip) June 21, 2018
I do. I really do. https://t.co/Xtpt0MrAGu— andy lassner (@andylassner) June 21, 2018
Melania ain’t shit. Stop pretending she’s an unwilling hostage. She married for money, she was on board the birther train, and here she is wearing this to visit her husband’s concentration camps. She really don’t care. Do u? https://t.co/UyYlWF0lk7— Brad Walsh (@BradWalsh) June 21, 2018

Here's some other slogan apparel from Zara that Melania might want to consider the next time she visits the child detainment camps in Texas pic.twitter.com/EIhkravDva— Michelle Collins (@michcoll) June 21, 2018
