Donald Trump’s outrageous political posturing and polarizing personality are causing a backlash that could hurt the reality TV star’s pockets. RumorFix has learned that over half a million people have signed a petition urging Macy’s to sever their relationship with the hairstyle guru and his clothing line.
Angelo Carusone recently launched the petition to be delivered to Terry J. Lundgren, Chairman of the Board, CEO and President at Macy’s Inc.
“Macy’s has a special deal with Donald Trump. They invest in developing Trump’s brand and sell his clothing line and fragrance at their locations. To this end, they have had major events at Macy’s Herald Square location and they often feature and promote Trump in advertisements designed to celebrate the magic of Macy’s.
Recently, Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren sent Donald Trump a letter touting how excited Macy’s was to be working with Trump and promising to expand Trump’s brand even further than it already is.
But, why is Macy’s celebrating Trump?” Angelo asks.
According to Angelo, Trump engaged in “sexist behavior,” personally attacking women he disagrees with by calling them “unattractive,” ugly or fat. He hypocritically complained about jobs being shipped overseas to China, despite the fact that almost his entire clothing line sold at Macy’s is made in China and other Asian nations.
Angelo also claims that Trump “perpetuated the racially charged birther conspiracy, repeatedly arguing that President Obama has been lying and was not born in the United States.”
So far 609,222 people have signed the petition which is just a few signatures short of the 625,000 signature goal of the petition.
