Disney Star Jenna Ortega Calls Out Melania Trump With ‘I Do Care’ Jacket
Disney Channel star Jenna Ortega may only be 15 years old, but the young actress has no problem calling out an elder, especially First Lady Melania Trump.
Walking the red carpet at the 2018 Radio Disney Music Awards on Friday night (June 22) in Los Angeles, Ortega sported a white and gold jacket that made reference to Melania's now infamous, "I Really Don't Care, Do U?" jacket. Taking a subtle dig at the first lady, the back of Ortega's jacket cleverly read, "I Do Care And U Should Too."
And if it wasn't clear that her fashion choice was directed at Melania, Ortega cleared up any gray area on Instagram, posting a photo of herself sporting the top and writing in the caption, "dear @flotus."
The actress, who is of Mexican and Puerto Rican descent, has been open about her Latina heritage in the past, penning an essay where she stated she was extremely proud of where she comes from.
Melania made headlines earlier this week when she wore the green jacket while visiting a facility where immigrant children separated from their parents were being held. While the first lady did not respond to the backlash, President Donald Trump said the jacket was a message to the "Fake News Media."
The commander-in-chief tweeted, "'I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?' written on the back of Melani's jacket, refers to the FAKE NEWS MEDIA. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!"
