Tom Ford denies sending out a tweet that referred to First Lady Melania Trump as a "glorified escort" on Monday. The tweet, which was shared on an anonymous account, began with the words: "Who likes Tom Ford?"

The tweet continued: "Tom Ford refuses to dress Melania Trump: "I have no interest in dressing a glorified escort who steals speeches and has bad tasted in men."

The tweet quickly went viral on Monday. Many Twitter users praised Ford, while others defended Melania. The fictitious tweet was reported by mainstream news outlets as an authentic quote.


But Ford eventually denied ever saying those words.

"This is an absolutely fabricated and completely fake quote that somehow went viral," a spokeswoman for Ford tweeted Tuesday afternoon. "Mr. Ford did not make this statement; it is completely false."

The account that originally shared the tweet removed the post and apologized after garnering more than 16,000 followers.

Ford is a Democrat who famously refused to dress Mrs. Trump - as did other openly homosexual fashion designers - after President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.


"She's not necessarily my image," Ford said of Melania during an appearance on The View in 2016. He went on to explain that he likely would not have dressed Hillary Clinton either, even though he voted for her and he was very sad that she lost the election.

Ford explained that his clothes are "too expensive" for the everyday woman. Prices for his gowns can run anywhere from $2,000 to more than $58,000.

When a ’View' co-host mentioned that he once dressed former First Lady Michelle Obama, Ford said, "I thought it was appropriate" for the event at the time.

Ford further elaborated on why he wouldn't dress Mrs. Trump.

"Given this President's beliefs about 'made in America' - I think the clothes they wear should be made in America," he said. "I think that whoever is the President, or the First Lady, should be wearing clothes at a price point that are accessible to most Americans, and wearing clothes made in America. My clothes are made in Italy, they're very, very expensive. I don't think most women or men in our country can relate to that, and I think the First Lady or the President should represent all people."

  • LeeSeeCee

    Where is the lie? Even Donald referred to the tweet with a self-owned diss of Tom Ford doesn't have anything to dress like this (referencing Melania). Melania is a thing to him, not a person. He's proud of his eastern block barbie.

    Truer words have never been spoken.

  • iWasteTime

    1. This is old. How did it go viral this week. This is a story from 2016.
    2. He absolutely refused to dress her and any politician. Tom said they should wear clothes, that are indeed, made in America.
    3. What is really happening that the Trumps are trying to distract us from?
    Are they swapping in Melania?

  • the guest

    Ok, Mr. Ford, you did, but not in so many words.

    Tom Ford is a family man with children, he's going to back track a little and I don't blame him because Donald Trump and his supports are unhinged and do not operate within the perimeters of civility.

  • Roderick2011

    Maybe someone should ask Trump why only one of his three wives were 'made in America'?

  • Guest

    He don't like her. He said what he said. Okay.

    Journalism is dead ????? I haaate seeing social media fiascos on the news (real or not), especially if they haven’t been vetted!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    “do not operate within the perimeters of civility.”

    Nope. They do NOT ?

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Truth..if Donald didn't have money she wouldn't be with his cruddy azz

  • morenYAHdelsur

    No credibility. No character. No originality. No alma mater! Where tf she went to school at?! I’ll wait LOL.

    Just. No. Melanoma (auto correct did that ??????).

  • Mielle Downey

    Tom is a true lying Democrat and just shitted on America. He is American but is a globalist elitist pos. You dressed Michelle because it fit your narrative at the time. So Americans are believing that they are not able to wear his close because the majority are poor working class trash who cant afford his clothing. Liberals are awful liars and only the sheep accept his so called truth. What a sham of a people.

  • Meme

  • Lady_Elle

    Melania is very smart and cunning!



  • Logan Roberts

  • Meme

    I have no clue as to what the Mongols have to do with Melania looking like Caitlyn but hey whatever turns you on maybe you're trying to point out how much she looks like genghis khan and yes I do agree with you she does look like genghis khan (a lot)mind you i believe she looks most like Caitlyn, but if you don't believe me look it up on the net there are plenty plenty side by side comparisons. America has been the great land of opportunity for Melanie only in America you can you go from top shelf call girl to first lady i love it!!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    His explanation is reasonable. I don't and won't own anything from Tom Ford. He is overpriced. The whole made in America thing is out the window. The world operates off a global economy.

  • dontgetblocked

    The last person he should have dressed is Moody Michelle.

  • Eileen

    Openly homosexual? really sandra and why shouldnt a FLOTUS wear a few designer digs? Can a FLOTUS truly represent all of Americas women? NO! But she can represent aspirations for all american women.

  • Rhondalousey

    He did say it and he did not lie

  • Vonn

    Right, she would still have ads in the back of magazines trying to make a buck.

  • Rere

    ..where is the lie? ??

  • Malificent

    He is speaking truth - his truth and the worlds truth. This president and his whole regime represent the small percentage of wealthy people and not the real Americans.

  • Malificent

    Check Michelle Obama

  • MRiGOThim

    I detected no lies :P

  • Mirella

    I don't get it. When you say "Refuse to dress" , you mean I refuse to dress you for free. Because Melania can go to a Tom Ford store and buy herself a dress, right? That's a crazy argument "My clothes are too expensive for your budget". But okay.

  • SandraRose

    What he means is, he - Tom Ford - will not design a dress for Melania. It's supposed to be an honor for specific designers to dress, aka design a dress, for a celebrity. Also, he is saying the average American woman can't afford his dresses.
