The comment in question attributed to the designer is over his supposed refusal to dress the first lady. “I have no interest in dressing a glorified escort who steals speeches and has bad taste in men,” Ford is quoted as saying. However, there is no attribution to where the supposed remark came from and a quick search won’t pull up any interview where Ford said those words. (Yahoo Lifestyle reached out to a rep for Ford for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.)

Still, Trump supporters quickly called for the Los Angeles based designer to be canceled.

Which amused some on the other side of the aisle.

Washington Post article about Ford’s 2016 appearance on The View where he explained why he won’t dress Melania.” Ford’s non-quote went viral when someone on Twitter posted it in a since-deleted message. The same user then tweeted a link to a Washington Post article about Ford’s 2016 appearance on The View where he explained why he won’t dress Melania.

“She’s not necessarily my image,” Ford, who backed Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, said. “Even had Hillary won, she shouldn’t be wearing my clothes… They’re too expensive.”

Nowhere in that interview did Ford call the first lady a “glorified escort.”
