The Melania Trump look-a-like model who appeared in rapper T.I.'s controversial music video clip is getting death threats, according to Fox News.
Melanie Marden shared a message on Instagram explaining that her appearance in the 1-minute clip was a "creative choice."
In the music video, Marden wore that famous green jacket with the words, "I Really Don't Care, Do you?" -- while she performed a strip tease in a replica of the Oval Office.

"I was hired (as an actress) not a stripper to portray Melania Trump," she wrote. "It was a creative choice for me, and also an opportunity to empower women. I stand firmly in my decision to share all of myself in this role."
Marden went on to say she wanted to be "brave and fearless" in her first role that required full nudity. She said she "felt good about being a strong enough woman to portray a nude First Lady."
She also addressed the IG users who threatened her in the comments section, saying:
"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 nothin to do with me. For that I am sad and wish you much healing."
The video clip, posted to T.I.'s Twitter feed on Friday, sparked outrage online. "How is this acceptable? #disgusting #boycott T.I.," tweeted Melania's spokesperson Stephanie Grisham.
In a statement to Fox News, Grisham wrote:
"Like it or not, she is the First Lady and this is the White House. It's disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics. These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country -- it needs to stop."
A few of VH1's advertisers quietly pulled their ad spots from T.I.'s new reality show, T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, that is set to debut next week.
One advertiser specifically cited a full length music video featuring T.I. and Marden (as the First Lady) engaging in a graphic love scene as the reason for pulling their ad spots.
