If this is true, it is absolutely crazy!

Lady Grey Jewelry just dropped the mic on the Donald Trump campaign — and we are so here for it!!
Ivanka Trump recently purchased a Helix Ear Cuff from the celeb-adored indie brand, and what she got in return was probably a little more than she bargained for!
Catching wind that the Trump Organization VP placed an order on the site, Lady Grey co-founders Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader decided to take the opportunity to send the message that they are with her and definitely not with him.
In fact, instead of profiting off the purchase, Jill and Sabine decided to take the money and pay it forward to causes they care about: the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety Organization, and yes, the Hillary Clinton campaign.
They took to their Instagram page using the hashtag #thanksbutnothanks to show the handwritten note that reads:
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.
Jill + Sabine
Beasts! We LOVES it!
Naturally, the company's page instantly started to fill with commenters both applauding and questioning their professionalism.
But talking to The Cut, the brand designers defended their decision:
"The note was included in her package and shipped last week directly from our studio in Brooklyn. 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."
Snaps all around!
Wonder if Ivanka will be rocking that ear cuff any time soon???
