Melania Trump Look-Alike Who Starred in Controversial T.I. Video Says She's Been Getting Death Threats
Model Melanie Marden played the first lady in a controversial video that showed her stripping in the Oval Office.
The Melania Trump look-alike seen stripping down in T.I.'s controversial video claims she has been getting death threats.
Model Melanie Marden posted on Instagram that she stands "firmly" behind the decision to take on the role.
"I wanted to be brave, be fearless and for the first time in my life do a role that required nudity," she wrote. "... It was a hard decision for me but I’m proud of myself for being so brave."
She added: "I send love to all the people who called me names and made accusations or delivered hurtful insults. These are clearly deep wounds inside of you. That have nothing to do with me. For that I am sad and wish you much healing.
"To all the political people threatening me, I remind you this is a music video," she concluded. "Relax!"
T.I. stirred outrage after posting the video on Twitter last Friday. The clip shows Marden walking into the Oval Office in only that infamous “I REALLY DON’T CARE DO U?” jacket, which she ultimately sheds, then climbs atop the Resolute Desk as T.I. lights a cigar.
The video also shows "Melania" defacing her husband’s presidential portrait with red spray paint.
Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for the first lady, has called for a boycott of T.I.’s music in response to the salacious Twitter post.
“How is this acceptable?” Grisham tweeted over the weekend.
