Iran’s Press TV tweeted a meme on Sunday of men at the G20 ogling US President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump. Ivanka, who is an advisor to the US President, was at the G20 to speak on women’s rights.

A photo of Ivanka walking in front of G20 leaders was posted by Iran’s Press TV showing the men staring at her. It was then doctored to highlight the Japanese Prime Minister Shino Abe, Argentine President Mauricio Macri, Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and several other world leaders. The image shows several of the leader faces highlighted as if they are ogling Ivanka or staring at her suggestively.

Iran is run by a theocratic regime that forces women to cover their hair. Yet, the country’s own media tweeting the image with “no comment” appears to be a sexist. The tweet was critiqued. Neerja Gogoi, a feminist, wrote that it was “low level journalism” and that while there is a lot to critique, this wasn’t the way. Others responded to the tweet, arguing that Ivanka had no right to be on the stage with the leaders.

The tweet comes amid tensions between the US and Iran.
