The to-be US First Lady Melania Trump has been in news for quite sometime now, mostly because of her beauty and her admiration of Michelle Obama’s brilliant word play. She was so inspired by FLOTUS, that she ended up copying an entire speech? Following Donald Trump’s election as the next US President, social media sites have been on overdrive analysing the Slovenian model’s past and present. Old photos are being dug out, every inch of her wardrobe is being scrutinised, even her facial expressions!

And all this not only by Americans, but by people here in India as well. Film director Ram Gopal Varma stirred a lot of trouble when he compared Melania Trump with Michelle Obama, comparing their looks on Twitter. Soon he was lambasted by all and sundry, including Omar Abduallah. Well, another Mumbai-based Twitter user also had an interesting observation to make regarding the new FLOTUS, and that too quite a while back.

Twitter user @krazyfrog had posted a message way back on July 20 with photos of Trump, saying, “Melania Trump constantly looks like she’s seen you somewhere but can’t remember where,” but interestingly, the tweet was ‘stolen’ by American comedian Chris Rock, who tweeted the same picture with the comment on November 15. What’s surprising is that he even put his watermark on the image.

However, @krazyfog took it light and here’s what he had to say about it. Also, looks like Chris Rock wasn’t the only one.

But the Indian Internet junta didn’t let it go and they fought for @krazyfrog’s original tweet.

And as karma would have it, Chris Rock was called out for the tweet as people thought it was racist of him to be tweeting out a message as such.
