Just imagine how much trouble you can conjugate by putting Melania Trump on a billboard without her permission.That’s what a Croatian English-language school learned when the first lady’s lawyer threatened to sue over five billboards in the country’s capital, Zagreb.
The signs carried the slogan “Just imagine how far you can go with a little bit of English.”
“The billboards were part of a marketing campaign by a private language school in Zagreb, which tried to persuade Croats to learn English by reminding them of the Slovenian-born U.S. first lady’s personal experience,” said The Guardian.
Trump’s Slovenian lawyer demanded that the billboards be removed immediately. So they were.
Ivis Buric, a spokeswoman for the school, was quoted as saying: “We are very sorry that the billboards were misunderstood as something intended to mock the U.S. first lady. It was meant to be something positive, to show her as a role model.”
