TIP Harris, Melania Trump

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.

  • Mister Fantastic

    I hope all the advertiser pull from that "show". You ever notice he change his voice when speaking to white people? Wanna be O.G. fake, Snitching on Big Meech and BMF, and got his snitching court SEALED. Kermit, pay your employyes, and be faithful to your blue eyed piggy. SuuuWEEEEEE!

    Donald shouldn't care. My wife is active in the African American arts.

  • Navybeans95

    OK..so why go after the lookalike? She's acting in a music video...do they teach stupid?...smh

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I won't cater to neither one of these parties .... Trumps or The Hustle .... Fawk all they lack of integrity azzes ... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1425c997ed3319b16098cad0d4bebaabde80cd22860d557863b4ff2c949aed9.gif

    If this stunt is affecting little Napoleon TI's coins then that's good news!

    Listen, I don't like Metamucil and her constipated looking alien ass because she is no innocent bish and her mentally incompetent huzzband is forever disrespecting her (that orange POS held an umbrella for himself in the rain the other day while he allowed her to walk behind him in the rain with no umbrella). Anyone still believe they are still together? They are together for publicity only.

    This is exactly what TI gets for acting like a snot-nosed little kid. Grow up and show your kids better. Now everybody laughing at your stupid AF ass for messing up your coins. Now your undoubtedly whack ass shows will probably be canceled too.

    Stop trying to use shock value to get your PR buzz, because most people are on to it, and the others will stop your money. TI been in this game along time, he shouldn't have to resort to this to get buzz if he would just stop with the shenanigans and put out real music. Now with people pulling out ads for his tv show, and probably gonna stop or slow down his tour draws, he's gonna be looking silly. He should be better than this. I don't give one rat's azz about Trump or his wife, but common sense should have been on TI's mind instead of "creating shock and drama" to get people interested in his album/cd. This may hurt him in the long run.

  • Jay Blossom

    T.I. is captivated by the captors. Now they are cancelling his dumb azz.

  • dontgetblocked

    I said a few days ago that TI needs to leave that white man and his woman alone. You're a black felon with skeletons in your closet. The total and complete destruction of TI and his family begins in 5-4-3-2-1.

  • Malcom Flex

    Stop telling the truth!

  • FukkFolks2018

    So...where is root story about how he is supposedly losing advertisers? I think its safe to say... I can find almost ANYTHING, and....I don't see it. Drop the receipts

  • FukkFolks2018

    Where have they pulled ads from? Goes to look again

  • pecancandy

    Ghetto elite....lol

  • Malcom Flex

    Whoops!

  • Prettybrowneyes

    Hmmph....I'm still waiting ?

  • DeJeri

    EXACTLY. She posed nude and she wore that jacket. If she never did those things than it would not have been possible to mock her in the first place.

  • DeJeri

    You have a point. The demographic of people that watch his show wouldn't care anyway so the sponsors would be losing money if they pulled their ads.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    My thing is just like he did with the Houston’s restaurant craze, do that. Go out here in the A and help ppl to vote. Our ppl really don’t vote in governer elections bc we think we don’t make a difference. With Stacy Abrams being in it, help our ppl to elect her

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I never watched an episode! Hey Jen!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Lol

  • imright

    hes also an informant , he’ll b fine.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I frfr don't see it. Like a story. If advertisers pulled ads behind Tip...we think they are going to be quiet about it? A black man with a felony record?? I mean it could be true. Time will tell

  • pure_igenue?

    MAGA's watching TI's shows??? DOUBT IT!

  • Coffee1st

    I don't understand the point. Maybe im missing something.
    Don't like Trump but this is petty.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Abrams wants illegal aliens to have access to The Hope Scholarship... yeah it’s no for me.. I’ll take the bus driving Kemp...
    Just because abrams is black doesn’t mean squat.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Lmfao

  • Fire & Ice

    Me either.

  • Candance

    Why is everyone so upset. You can google her and find nudes so whats the bug deal??? She is who she is!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    ? Don mad af.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Yes for the ATL’s ghetto elite ???????

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I wonder if this is true......

  • Fire & Ice

    JESUS ???

  • Alicia.Ashe

    So most is from Fox News so you know it’s not a fact.

  • Dun Dilly

    Trump gonna clap back at Tiny's appearance in 3,2,1....

  • C Mack

    Period

  • Mielle Downey

    TI and TIny and soo dumb. Waiting for the Crosby effect in 5,4,3,2,1......blastoff. When digging graves for other be sure to dig one for yourself. Karma is the one he should have had a conversation with before his brain got fried trying to one up Trump. His poor daughters though... what an exemplary father he is. Black do better.

  • EMILY POST

    Lol that’s what he get

  • Rhondalousey

    Hurt who? No one was hurting when they called Michelle a monkey, life went on as usual. So portraying don's wife as what she used to be right before she got in the white house should be no sweat off of anyone's back. She's fine.

  • Mielle Downey

    Skin folk ain't always kin folk and you can ask Detroit and Kawame Fitzpatrick about dat. this black man destroyed that city and is in handcuffs like he should be..Vote your conscience and not your skin color.

  • ibedatchick

    #facts

  • FukkFolks2018

    Kwame didnt destroy shit. Detroit was in the toilet when he got there. Their annual burning of the city Devils Night is coming up soon. I guess he is responsible for the citizens going out and torching half the city on Halloween. Since the 50s but it really took off in the 80s. He was an asshole fraud. But Detrot is a lot of folks doing. Not just Kwame's

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I get it but get ppl to vote period no matter who u know what I’m saying?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    "I don't care. Do you?"
    I bet she cares now. Her ratty past is on display.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Li-Wright

    Think about this: What if it had been Michele Obama? TI did a dumb thing, really dumb. It may even impact him getting that Atlanta TV show @ Fox.

  • Ni Ni

    an opportunity to empower women.
    ________________
    I'm so sick of this bs. Plus, she really does sound like a blonde.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    And she copied Michelle 0's speech. It's not like she has high integrity.

  • Ni Ni

    Welp, T.I. started it.

  • Ni Ni

    Idk, maybe that was who she Was....considering she is not still doing it and i haven't heard of her posing in years. It looks like she has embraced adult hood unlike the Kim K's who are still getting nekkid.

  • Ni Ni

    Goodnight Vanna???!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Lol

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Right exactly ??

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    If Keith Urban or some other country singer, made a video depicting Michelle Obama dancing butt naked and tramped stamped out... Some blacks, like Sharpton, fake woke Shaun King, and Soros funded DeRay McKesson would be having a coronary. TI was wrong, and now he’s facing the repercussions.

  • Jethro

    Why are the deplorables so thin-skinned and bloodthirsty? ? Even Satan has more self-control.

  • Jethro

    This is about tRumptards; try to pay attention.

  • Jethro

    When will her husband embrace it?

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    I was hired (as an actress) not a stripper
    Call it what you want, but naked in the video. We call chicks like you, sl uts!!

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    I agree! The left has lost its mind, and can’t control their illness any longer

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Hahahha. Yes ALL the advertisers need to pull out of his trash as s show!!

  • Ci Sam

    I dont understand what the point was for T.I. to do that ... I'm just lost

  • Ci Sam

    I'm searching for the point as well.. just blatant disrespect with a completely missed message

  • Truth

    Empower women???? wtf.....

  • Rayne

    I saw a meme of the Michelle and Barack fawking in the Oval Office on the floor. Where was the outrage then? I was pissed and everybody reported that isht.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Pardon? The article clearly talks about
    TI’s tasteless video.. if you’re “paying attention” you’d see that many commenters don’t understand the big deal of TI’s disrespectful actions..
    #MAG

  • Eileen

    Disgusting...how does this empower women? smh

  • Eileen

    You are right the left has left their minds....

  • B.Loveitt

    Don't like TI but will be streaming and buying whatever he drops. Everybody cut the show on in the house when it the new season starts just for the ratings...phuck these sad deplorables and they mammies.

    Cheers...

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Look at the title. The ads will be pulled from his and Tiny's reality tv show. If enough advertisers pull ads, there is no way to support the tv show, which obviously him and Tiny need. Advertisers is how a show stays on the air.

  • Amy

    Well the The first Tramp should have thought about that herself when she posed nude years ago. Does her camp not remember that? I guess this was an accurate portrayal it reminded her of her past.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    T.I. dumb ass will regret this

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Oh this stuff is just fine because it’s againt trump

  • Jethro

    tRump says he loves the poorly educated, so he must adore you.

  • BloodBlood

    F!ck them wasn't nobody mad at the picture of Michelle & Obama

  • Judge Mental Will

    Do you lady... Who cares about haters.... But all that empowering women mess is crap! You not saving the world by stripping.

  • free

    i want to laugh but i really can't. i know in my heart it's disrespectful and he shouldn't have gone there.

  • shelly

    Trump supporters are punks. They do everything in the cloak of darkness. Just laugh an keep it moving

  • shelly

    How does Melanie empower women?

  • shelly

    What repercussions?

  • OvertheMississippi

    Have yall noticed that Trump has not mentioned this AT ALL????? Is he snickerimg under his breath because he really does not give a d@mn bout her.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Mam, Sandra clearly stated in the article that TI has received backlash, including advertisements being pulled from his new show.

  • Anika Kelly

    they were not up in arms when they depicted Michelle Obama as a ape, monkey, loud-black woman, etc...so eff these hypocrites

  • Faithz

    Thank you for that truth, and they wasn't up in arms when
    we watched, and heard heard the Video of Dump talking about where to
    grab them, now that was bad, and even Billy Graham said it was okay I though Wtf....

  • TransMichelle

    Ain't no way in hell Odumba had this much negativity. The Donald has 92% or somewhere around that number of the main stream slave media against him. Odumba didn't because he was their slave. Don't even try it

  • TransMichelle

    Yep I call him T-Idiot. He's a punk.. T-Idiot is the example of a dumb dumb nicca.

  • TransMichelle

    No she doesn't care stop trippin

  • TransMichelle

    Why are black folks so dam dumb? You write anything and expect people to believe it. That's why we last in everything. At this site: http://thefappeningblog.com/naomi-campbell-naked-35-photos/ you can find a ton of nude photos of Naomi Campbell very much like the photos Melania took. Models at some time in their career take nude photos for whatever reason. You're a plantation nicca following white liberals. Dummy

  • Faithz

    Off Topic...And no one is streaming about slicing Medicaid, which helps subsidize the cost at Nursing homes. And where in the world is the outcry for them Giving the Tax breaks to the top ten percent, and big Corporations, while those of us who are in between, and as the very bottom continues to struggle to keep the lights on from drowning in Medical bills, food, living expenses, and just to keep the lights on. Then you got the shyt talkers keeping a really good shine on Dumps behind, in his honor, But I say honor him for what? America is a great Country, but where is the out cry for them talking about the only way to handle the Country high As Deficit is to Slash , Cut, and beat the poor out of their hard earned coins while they trash each of us, for having anything to say about it! The Richest among at the top, like Dump, and his richest friends the World keep pushing many of us further into further into property.

  • TransMichelle

    For those talking about Melania's nude photos. At this site you will find dam near the exact same naked poses of the model Naomi Campbell.
    http://thefappeningblog.com/naomi-campbell-naked-35-photos/
    Models do take nude photos during the career for whatever reason. So you all can take a seat. I would have loved to post the photos outright but because of the other thread dealing with this issue I won't. You can see the photos for yourself.

  • Junkanoo

    Trumps supporters are a unhinged hateful lot very much similar to how the police force attracts a lot of power hungry racists cops. Some things in the air the same austerity , xenophobia, corruption and greed is playing out in many countries around the world.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Sandra stated. I have yet to find proof. It's not in that Fox news write up. It's not anywhere yet other than here.

  • gail jones

    I always turn my tv's on for certain shows, even if I don't like them. Glad I'm not alone in this.

  • FukkFolks2018

    There is zero proof of this pulling ads asserertions. Until proof pops up that a real boycott is going on, I'm reserving comments. During searches this story here on this blog is the only one that comes up. No news outlet. If a boycott was going on over TI? It would be mainstream news. They wouldnt be able to hardly wait to drag him in the media. Like a kid at Christmas

  • gail jones

    Why you call Shaun fake woke.

  • ohdearme

    Funny that Trump slams the left for being dangerous and more, yet it's him and his supporters that love to issue death threats and more when they don't like what they see. Projection much? Trump loves the representative that body slammed a reporter touting "that's my type of guy" really a POTUS uttered that? In the same breathe he wants you to believe that he really has concern for the missing journalist? FOH bigot!

  • http://bitchbecomesher.com Tasha Nicole

    Ummm yeah...I knew this was going to happen. It's not art and its very distasteful and I'm not even a Trump supporter.

  • Omandesert

    Wasn’t it a creative choice for flouts to pose naked on bear rugs and bump titties with other naked female models? Same thing. Fox News is a joke.

  • country57

    You're right!! Fox would be all over ads being pulled. They would rip him up all day.

  • Trey

    Good job sabotaging your own show....change the name to "Hustle backwards".....dummy

  • Trey

    The amount of dirt and skeletons Trump and his "investigators" could get on Tiny would be overwhelming.....why Clifford...why?

  • TransMichelle

    That's why I call him T-Idiot.

    “It was a creative choice for me, and also an opportunity to empower women
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I don't know how this 'empowers women' but I can respect her standing by her choice. She did it and she owns it. I hate when folks do something outrageous and then start back peddling when the pressure comes. I'm sure he expected some backlash so It will be interesting to see what happens with this show...

  • tia

    Til this day Michelle is still being dragged and called all kinds of names.
    But on another note, was this really necessary for T.I.? Sometimes he's on point and a whole lot of other times, he is ignorant as hell. Just a big 'ole dummy!!

  • tia

    me too??

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    You get whatever type of energy that you put out in the world. I think we all know the type of energy that Trump spreads. It just came right back. What's the big deal? Melania was a whore.
