Ivanka Trump's Brand Issued a Statement About That Awkwardly Timed '60 Minutes' Ad

This is...kind of an apology?

Ivanka Trump recently came under fire for using Donald Trump's 60 Minutes interview as an opportunity to promote a $10,000 bracelet, thus blurring the lines between business and politics. The designer sent out a "style alert" to journalists about the piece she wore during her segment of the interview, and was accused of a) using he dad's political position to her own advantage, and b) promoting an item that most U.S. voters couldn't dream of affording.

The brand has low-key apologized for the misstep, saying the "style alert" was sent by "a well-intentioned marketing employee at one of our companies who was following customary protocol, and who, like many of us, is still making adjustments post-election."

Hopefully this means Ivanka won't be trying to monetarily capitalize off her father's presidency in the future.
