Donald Trump‘s family of businesses are really hurting right now!
Following major retailers dropping online sales of POTUS’ line of home products, it seems his Trump Models agency is also taking a big hit!
Yes, in case you didn’t know, Drumpf has his own modeling agency… because of course he does.
Now, stylists and casting directors are taking a stand against Trump by refusing to work with anyone signed to his agency!
According to one report, the boycott actually began last fall before the Presidential election, but has recently started to pick up steam. One casting director even admitted:
“It’s not a great agency, so it’s not such a big loss.”
Others have even gone public with their stance like hair guru Tim Aylward, who vowed to stop working with any “talent” from Trump Models. Meanwhile, another expert in the fashion industry added, “if there was a girl I wanted, I wouldn’t mind if she was represented by Attila the Hun”.
To each their own, right??
Shannon Coulter, who has become known for the #Grabyourwallet movement, has even weighed in, explaining:
“What we’re seeing is that the Trump name is becoming truly toxic. It seems that people can’t get away from the Trumps fast enough now. I think those casting directors and stylists are making the right call not doing business with them.”
Of course this isn’t the first time Trump Models has been under scrutiny.
Last year, Rachel Blais alleged the agency encouraged her to illegally go around U.S. visa laws, stating to CNN:
“As a model, one of the things you learn quite quickly is that ├óΓé¼┬ª you shouldn’t ask too many questions. If you want to work, you have to do as you’re told. Yet you’re kind of aware that it’s not legal.”
Another Trump model Alexia Palmer claimed she was promised $75,000 but wasn’t being paid nearly close to that:
“That’s what slavery people do. You work and don’t get no money.”
Yikes! It’ll be interesting to see what happens to Trump’s management company!
