Who Is Louise Linton and Why People Slam Her Over Pantless Photo?

The actress and wife of Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin has been dubbed 'Marie Antoinette without pants' for posing in just a sweater for Elle magazine.

AceShowbiz - People all around the web have been talking about Louise Linton and they mostly diss her. The Scottish actress, who has appeared in films like 2016's "Cabin Fever" remake, is slammed for posing in just sweater without pants for Elle magazine.

While the photo seems innocent as it's not that racy or provocative enough to spark debate, many are roasting her on social media. This apparently draws back to Linton's image as the wife to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin who has been constantly flaunting her wealth, even at government functions.

Linton's interview with the magazine in which she tries to rehab her image and prove that she is totally relatable doesn't help either. Following the release of her sexy photo on the magazine, one Internet user dubs her "Marie Antoinette without pants."

"You'd think with all the money she and her husband make, Louise Linton would be able to afford some pants...," another comments on Twitter. "Was going to curl up with a cup of tea and read that article about Louise Linton but decided to rip out my eyeballs and eat them instead," reads another comment.

Another anti-fan tweets, "I don't know for SURE but I really get the feeling I'm not the only one in this yoga class meditating on the idea of throwing raw chicken cutlets at Louise Linton." One other sarcastically writes, "Oh dear God Louise Linton is trending again. Someone check on the puppies and orphans."

In a wide-ranging interview with Elle, Linton apologizes for her Instagram rant in August 2017. She, at the time, hit back at another Instagram user who criticized a post she made last year that touted her affluence and designer clothing.

"I was so stupid," she says about the post which has since been deleted. She adds of herself, "I think after being kicked and slapped on social media a billion times, I had this one time. This lady said I was a deplorable human being, and that hurt."

Explaining her angry response to the critic at the time, she claims, "So I had this knee-jerk reaction and I was like...blarghhhh. I was feeling like a regular person. And regular people, when someone says something mean to you on social media, regular people are allowed to respond. I felt like the kid on the playground that has been so bullied, and finally you punch back."
