Donald Trump Jr is receiving a backlash on social media after he posted a meme mocking the woman who recently came forward and alleged that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were high school students. In a direct attack on the Democrats, the son of the president shared the image on Instagram suggesting that the recent emergence of the sexual assault case is to divert attention.

“Oh boy… the Dems and their usual nonsense games really have him on the ropes now. Finestein had the letter in July and saved it for the eve of his vote… honourable as always. I believe this is a copy for full transparency [sic],” he wrote. The image, a piece of paper with childish handwriting read: “Hi Cindy, will you be my girlfriend,” followed by two boxes marked “yes” and “no.” and signed with “Love, Bret”.

The image was posted before the woman, Christine Blasey Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, stepped forward to reveal her identity after the anonymous letter created a huge stir.

The meme irked hundreds of people across social media platforms and many were stunned how he could do it post the #MeToo movement. While some lambasted him for his ‘insensitive’ and ‘distasteful’ reaction, others suggested his suspension from all social media platform.

Ford in an exclusive talk with The Washington Post elucidated the event which occurred over three decades ago. She said that he had “groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers … clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it”. “I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” she said. “He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing,” report added.
