In an attempt to juice up the sales for his album Dime Trap, T.I. dropped a promo video in which a Melania Trump look-a-like gets naked and gives Tip a lap dance in the Oval Office while the President is away
This got the real White House all hot and bothered, and the First Lady's spokeswoman called for a boycott of Tip.
We don't think that worked. Dime Trap flopped but it was flopping before T.I. released the promo. But the backlash did get one of the President's more ardent fans to turn on actress Melanie Marden, who took off her clothes and played Melania in the clip
Marden met with the West Hollywood police yesterday to report a death threat. According to TMZ, it was lengthy text message which mentioned hiring an assassin to kill her and claimed there was a tracking device on her car.
Here's the video causing all of the trouble:
