Rumored Donald Trump Jr. mistress Aubrey O'Day returns with makeup-free selfie, gets trolled

Aubrey O’Day isn’t letting persistent rumors of an alleged affair with a married Donald Trump Jr. from 2011 to 2012 stop her from using social media. In fact, according to the caption on her latest Instagram photo, she’s “embracing the shade.”

That’s good, as there is plenty more shade — and shaming — where that came from. The singer made her return to Instagram Thursday with a rare makeup-free photo. And while many fans praised her barefaced beauty — which fetched comparisons to Christina Aguilera’s new minimalist cover shoot — there was an army of trolls posting negative remarks trashing her looks and reputation.

Critics didn’t hold back their abuse.

“She may have outer beauty, but a woman who cheats with a married man with five kids is a skank and desperate,” read one scathing comment from a troll who also called the former Danity Kane performer a “walking STD.”

“Anything to stay relevant right?” added a follower. “Poor children if you ever end up having any.”

“You cheated with a married man who has five kids,” chimed in another outraged commenter. “Worse, it’s that deplorable DTJ. So gross.”

But O’Day did have people defending her from the hurtful comments. Others are simply hoping that her return to social media means a juicy Trump exposé is on the way.

“Some ppl wanna come at u negative, but u are stunning in ur own AMAZING way,” a fan wrote. “Especially in this picture!!!”

“F*** ’em but you got an opportunity to tell your story and you hold that power, use it wisely,” added a supporter.

Could this barefaced pic be a hint that O’Day has nothing to hide anymore? Stay tuned … but don’t expect her to crumble under the criticism.
