Ivanka Trump's art collection is causing the future first daughter some trouble.
A group of artists is demanding she remove their artwork — which is often featured in her Instagram posts — from her New York apartment, Bloomberg reported.
The artists are working with the Halt Action Group, which has initiated a "Dear Ivanka" Instagram campaign to protest President-elect Donald TrumpDonald TrumpGOP grapples with chaotic Senate primary in Pennsylvania Trump social media startup receives commitment of billion from unidentified 'diverse group' of investors Iran thinks it has the upper hand in Vienna — here's why it doesn't MORE via messages to his daughter.
The protest group's website directly addresses Ivanka Trump and mentions some of her father's top advisers by name.
"Dear Ivanka, we need to talk about your dad. Racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, and homophobia are not acceptable anywhere—least of all in the White House," the message begins.
"Steve Bannon has no place in the White House.

Talk of a Muslim registry has no place in the White House. Hate has no place in the White House. We refuse to 'wait and see'. We look to you as the voice of reason."
The group was founded by curator Alison Gingeras, dealer Bill Powers, artist Jonathan Horowitz and other members of the art scene. Trump has invested in young artists who now feel they have a unique platform to voice their concerns, Bloomberg reported.
"Through her collecting and social appearances, Ivanka Trump belonged to a certain degree to our world," curator Alison Gingeras told Bloomberg.
“I think there are a lot of artists that are uncomfortable now being incorporated, or leveraged, as part of the Ivanka Trump brand," added dealer Bill Powers.
"Ivanka Trump, please get my work off of your walls. I am embarrassed to be seen with you," artist Alex Da Corte wrote to the president-elect's daughter.
Dear @ivankatrump, Is it strange to feel that the press is always watching you? That there is some kind of vested interest in your foibles, both real and imaginary, past and future? It must be a lot of pressure to leave your house everyday and know that the phalanx will be waiting outside, looking to either applaud your chicness or rip your seeming indecision about who you actually are to shreds. We here at Dear Ivanka receive our fair share of hate mail too, and we just wanted to reach out and commiserate. We want you to know that we are with you every step of the way. The difference between us is that we refuse to normalize the rhetoric of your father’s shit-show administration, we don’t feel like smiling at the camera or waving at reporters, we don’t feel like pretending that nothing is wrong. We want to get to know all of you- negative, positive, embittered, angry, suffering, pleading, and hopeless. Who is in the bubble? We are both from New York, Ivanka. But we aren't a parade of billionaires and oil men. To all of those who think that parroting Donald Trump’s appalling vitriol is going to muzzle us, we have news for you: we won’t stop, we won’t be silenced, we will not accept fascism as the natural political transition from one administration to the next. We are not partisan. We are here, Ivanka, and we’re not going anywhere. Sincerely, HALT #ivankatrump #noliberaltears
