The US president's daughter and advisor Ivanka Trump hates Saturday Night Live (SNL) for portraying her in a mock ad for a perfume called "complicit", former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman revealed in her book, according to People magazine. Newman wrote that although SNL has mocked everyone in Trump's administration, Ivanka has complained the most about it.
"At the senior staff meeting, Ivanka couldn't stop bemoaning [the SNL sketch], how offensive it was, how ridiculous it was," Newman reportedly wrote.
The former aide suggested in her book, that like Donald Trump himself, Ivanka is "thin-skinned and could not seem to take a joke."
Many Twitterians suggested upon hearing the news that Ivanka should grow thicker skin if she wants to survive in the White House.

Others noted that the sketch contained nothing to complain about
Why is she complaining? Scarlett Johansson portrayed her. I want to be portrayed by her!— CardiffHwy128 (@CardiffHwy128) August 16, 2018

Many Twitter users left caustic remarks saying Ivanka's reaction was allegedly caused by the sketch hitting a little too close to home.

Can’t wait for Ivanka’s next fragrance, CONVICTION…— Clay Moore (@Claymorecomic) August 16, 2018
It’s made from the tears of small immigrant children and smells like child-labor sweatshops.

Omarosa, who now claims she has recordings of Jared and Ivanka, is apparently so adept at obtaining kompromat that Putin offered her a job with the Kremlin.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) August 14, 2018
Saturday Night Live released its mock ad on March 2017, depicting Ivanka Trump as the face for a perfume called "Complicit" hinting at ongoing investigation into alleged collision between Trump's electoral team and Russia. After the clip aired, Trump reacted to it by saying the only thing she was complicit in is being a "force for good."
