Model Karlie Kloss got absolutely roasted by actress, writer, and young founder of Rookie, Tavi Gevinson, for posting a graphic to Instagram about ending racism when she's so connected to the Trump family...

In case you don't know, Karlie Kloss is married to Joshua Kushner, who is the brother of Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump's husband. Jared Kushner is the senior advisor of President Trump and has also been in charge of peace plans for the Middle East. While Kloss hasn't publicly denounced her ties to Trump, she has very safely expressed that she disagrees.

In an interview with Vogue in 2018 Kloss said, "Josh and I share a lot of the same liberal values that guide our lives and the things we stand for." "Liberal values" we can only assume would mean "disagreeing with Trump," but it's still a fairly weak way of saying she's not on the side of her brother in-law. I would love to be a fly on the wall at their Thanksgiving...

So, after George Floyd's murder by white Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, Kloss joined many others in expressing solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement. However, a lot of people feel that posting a graphic or a quotation without backing it with links to educational tools for where to donate to organizations that fight police brutality and racism is "performative activism." And, coming from someone so closely tied to Trump, the optics aren't...great.
