Tiffany & Co. wants Donald Trump to know that climate change is not a hoax. The luxury jeweler posted an open letter to President Trump addressing the need for "bold climate action" in the White House. "Please keep the U.S. in the Paris Climate Agreement. The disaster of climate change is too real, and the threat to our planet and to our children is too great," the company warned. "Tiffany strongly supports keeping the U.S. in the #ParisAgreement."
While many people were quick to applaud the company taking a stand during Trump's contentious presidency, some felt the company should have avoided politics altogether. (And we're betting The Donald didn't appreciate the irony of Tiffany & Co. calling him out when his daughter Tiffany Trump is reportedly named after the iconic brand.) Read on to see a few reactions to Tiffany & Co.'s public stance on climate change.
You have just guaranteed my unwavering support of your brand. And yes I am a long time customer. I salute you.

Tiffany, as a lifelong loyal customer and a shareholder, I believe it's best to remain apolitical. Thank you.
