The Daily Mirror sparked outrage over the weekend after publishing a trend piece highlighting men in “lacy lingerie” which the British tabloid declared was “now a thing.”
“Ladies, if you’ve ever looked at your man’s underwear and thought it was a bit dull, then you’re not alone,” read the piece by audience writer Courtney Pochin that promoted a new company that was producing the garment. “The company’s bras don’t come with actual cup sizes, but some padded options are available and sizes range from small to extra large.”
“People on social media have mixed opinions on the idea of their partner wearing underwear,” she added.
It didn’t appear very mixed on social media, however, with many triggered by an image of a headless man in a pink bra.
“Maybe on Halloween or if you lose a bet really badly… ah who am I kidding not even then,” said Donald Trump Jr. “Who is pushing this garbage?”

While the president’s son may have been perturbed by the photo, it wasn’t a big deal for his father, President Trump, and his current chief attorney Rudy Giuliani. The former New York City mayor infamously went full drag in a 2000 press roast sketch which included the elder Trump making moves him.
“Oh Donald, I thought you were a gentleman,” Giuliani said before slapping him.
“Can’t say I didn’t try,” the real estate magnate responded coyly.
