NYT Reprimands Reporter After Actress Tweets About ‘Hooker’ Remark

nyt

A New York Times reporter has been reprimanded for a comment they made last night about Melania Trump.

Actress Emily Ratajkowski tweeted this morning that a Times reporter — whom she did not name — said that “Melania is a hooker.”

She said it’s important to call out slut shaming no matter your politics, and a Politico report this afternoon says that the reporter has been reprimanded:

At a party last night, a Times reporter who does not cover Washington or politics, referred to an unfounded rumor regarding Melania Trump, a Times spokesperson said in a statement to POLITICO. The comment was not intended to be public, but it was nonetheless completely inappropriate and should not have occurred. Editors have talked to the reporter in question about the lapse.
