Ivanka Trump’s fashion line is shutting down so she can focus on her White House duties, and shockingly, pretty much no one is sympathetic.

In a statement to NBC News, Trump said she does “not know when or if” she will ever revive the company, which shares her name.

“I do know that my focus for the foreseeable future will be the work I am doing here in Washington, so making this decision now is the only fair outcome for my team and partners,” Trump said in the statement.

The clothing line has been a source of controversy, as it appeared to conflict with President Donald Trump’s “America first” approach and trade policies. The company also faced boycotts and weak sales that pushed big-name retailers to drop her brand.

Following news of the company’s closure, people on Twitter apathetically mocked Ivanka Trump’s business acumen.

Some people were able to muster up the same amount of care that Ivanka Trump’s stepmother Melania had when she got dressed to visit immigrant detention centers on the border.

Others cared way more—for the immigrant kids separated from their parents, not for the loss of the fashion brand.
