Jewelry designers Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyade are being harassed and have received threats for teasing Ivanka Trump after she purchased an item from the jewelers' website, Lady Grey Jewelry.
Martinelli and Le Guyade, whose jewelry has been worn by pop stars Beyonce and Rihanna, posted their handwritten note to Ivanka, daughter of Republican nominee Donald Trump, on their Instagram page on Aug. 16:
Dear Ivanka, Thank you so much for your web order! We’re happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety organization, and the Hillary Clinton campaign. We hope you enjoy your new Lady Grey #helixearcuff. Best, Jill + Sabine.
Martinelli told New York Magazine via email: "While we were flattered to receive an order from Ivanka Trump, our social and political views couldn't be further from those of the Trump campaign. When we received her order, we instantly felt compelled to take the money and donate it to a few organizations that were more aligned with our ideals."
According to RawStory.com, that did not sit well with Donald's supporters, who berated the Brooklyn jewelry designers on Instagram:
"Your company is f------!!"
"Loooooosers ! Say buh bye to your company."
"Brag it up!! Very poor business choice! Your company is f------!!"
"Disgusting! Keep your political views to yourself. Run your business with class. Hope you loose lots of money from being so ignorant."
"I’m utterly in shock of your display of professionalism. I hate to, no actually ladies I’m not afraid to say but karma is a b---- and I know it will come back to hurt you."
According to RawStory.com, there were more derogatory comments on Facebook:
"Self-serving, tacky t----."
"F----- worthless c--- suckers!'
"I just sent them about 100 emails. Block up there business."
