Ivanka Trump reportedly purchased an ear cuff Tuesday from the Lady Grey Jewelry website only to be mocked by the company’s owners on social media.

Sabine Le Guyader and Jill Martinelli, who released their first Lady Grey collection in 2009, posted on Instagram a handwritten note addressed to the Republican presidential nominee’s daughter after she reportedly purchased an $84 gold Helix Ear Cuff online.

“Dear Ivanka, Thank you for your web order! We’re happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety Organization, and the Hillary Clinton campaign,” the note read. “We hope you enjoy your new Lady Grey #helixcuff. Best, Sabine and Jill.”

Ms. Martinelli told New York magazine that the note was included in Mrs. Trump’s order and shipped last week from their studio in Brooklyn.

“While we were flattered to receive an order from Ivanka Trump, our social and political views couldn’t be further from those of the Trump campaign,” Ms. Martinelli said. “When we received her order, we instantly felt compelled to take the money and donate it to a few organizations that were more aligned with our ideals.”

While many online commenters laughed at the gesture, others called it rude and unprofessional.

The Lady Grey Instagram account was set to private this morning, but has since been made public again, New York magazine reported.
