Approximately one year ago, #UnwantedIvanka was trending on social media after video of Ivanka Trump awkwardly inserting herself into a conversation with several world leaders at the G20 summit in Japan went viral.
The moment, which was truly embarrassing, had mostly been forgotten about by Americans, lost in the swamp of countless more cringeworthy acts by the first daughter over the last 365 days.
That is until writer and filmmaker Andy Ostroy decided to re-share it with his 80K Twitter followers, along with the caption: “Jeez… how embarrassing. Please do NOT retweet this because I know it absolutely horrifies @Ivankatrump (who’s blocked me) to see herself humiliated like this… #Ivanka #Trump.”

And, just like that, the video was trending again.
So far, Ostroy’s tweet has inspired 2,000 likes, another 2,000 retweets, and hundreds of comments.
I had completely forgotten about this video – Jesus she’s ridiculous.

The ecosystem is male dominated? Why is she dressed like a princess at a ball? pic.twitter.com/UpgLqVCNCV

As eloquent as her father.

It’s almost as if world leaders could give a sh#t what an unelected handbag designer thinks about world affairs. But I might be reading this wrong.

Oooops! My finger accidentally hit retweet.
Too bad, so sad.

Her point of the ecosystem being “male dominate” has no relevance to their conversation WHATSOEVER, she could have just said “two plus two equals four” 🤦♀️

World leaders have important things to discuss. She should have stayed at the children’s table where she belongs forever.
