Ivanka Trump has cut ties with her namesake clothing company, but controversy surrounding the brand still follows the first daughter.

On Monday, when the Ivanka Trump HQ’s Twitter account tweeted a recent article from its lifestyle website about summer skin care tips, now that the weather is warming up, Twitter noted the irony.

In April, the first daughter also faced scrutiny when a report surfaced that the Chinese factory that produces Ivanka Trump clothing underpays and overworks its employees.

Ever since President Donald Trump’s June 1 press conference (for which Ivanka was noticeably absent) to announce the United State’s withdrawal from the Paris Agreement — a deal between 196 nations to reduce emissions and prevent global warming — Ivanka, who serves as an adviser to the president, has been criticized for failing to sway her father from his stance on climate change.

During her father’s presidential campaign, Ivanka met with activist Al Gore, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio, the latter of whom gave Ivanka a copy of Before the Flood, a 2016 documentary on climate change that the actor co-produced.

On Wednesday, Us Weekly ran a cover story on Ivanka with the headline, “Ivanka Takes a Stand: Why I Disagree With My Dad.” While the article didn’t include an interview with Ivanka, an unnamed source told the magazine that she was “disappointed” by her dad’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement “but she’s learned to take such defeats in stride.”

The article was mercilessly ridiculed on social media — including by people who believe that Ivanka is actually aligned with her father’s politics — and the hashtag #WhyIDisagreeWithMyDad was born.
