Loose Women hit with Ofcom complaints after Ivana Trump ‘immigrant rape’ rant

Loose Women viewers furiously complained to Ofcom after seeing Ivana Trump's interview where she said immigrants "steal and rape women".

The media regulator reportedly received almost 100 complaints in the hours after 71-year-old former model Ivana's controversial rant.

Her shocking television appearance on Monday 14th September left viewers completely outraged as they branded the live television interview a "car crash".

The discussion which viewers found a "painful" watch saw Ivana praise her ex husband Donald Trump.

She not only supported Trump, but also shared her own abhorrent views.

She said: "He is pro everything I believe in. He is Republican and so am I. He's achieved so much, especially with immigration.

"I am immigrant, but they have to come to the country legally, they have to get a job, they have to pay taxes like the rest of Americans…

"A lot of people don't dress even American, they dress whatever they dress in.

"And they don't get a job and they steal and they rape the women. That's not our idea."

Jane Moore told Ivana: "What you've just said about migrants a lot of people would find quite offensive.

"You're a migrant yourself – are you not shutting the door behind you? Do you not understand some people just want a better life? How you describe them is quite inhumane."

Ivana replied: "It is inhumane but everybody has to pick themselves up.

"They have to go and apply for the visa properly then they come to America. They can come and cross the border properly."

Viewers fumed on Twitter during the episode, but nearly 100 decided to complain to Ofcom as they were so outraged.
