US First Lady Melania Trump has been criticised for the choice of her coat worn on a trip to a migrant child detention centre in Texas. Melania Trump was spotted in the coat, which featured graffiti writing on the back with the words "I really don't care do u?", as she boarded a plane, BBC reported on Thursday. Her spokeswoman said "there was no hidden message" in the former fashion model's sartorial choice. The $39 jacket from Zara has caused an uproar on social media. US President Donald Trump later tweeted that his wife's coat "refers to the Fake News Media". Twitter users were quick to criticise the first lady's jacket faux pas and the not-so-hidden message. One user made the point the jacket would likely have been received far better online, had it been worn on any other occasion. Credit: (Rodger Mallison/Fort Worth Star-Telegram/TNS via Getty Images)
