In fact, at least once a month, a minor controversy erupts over Ivanka's incorrect use of one word or the other.
Take, for instance, one of Ivanka’s first forays into the world of Twitter gaffes. In November of 2016, Ivanka tweeted “I cannot believe that Theodore is 8 months old today! Happy birthday little teddy bear!”
It was a very nice tweet and all, except… that wasn’t how birthdays worked, and Twitter was quick to let her know it.
Ivanka's Twitter word gaffes became so common, Vice political writer Eve Peyser compiled an entire thread of them.
There were her questionable uses of the words “relative” and “otherwise,” and her ill-fated attempt to impress the masses with her use of the word “albeit” – there were even snarky comments on her misspelling of the word undeniably as “indeniably.”
This week, Ivanka sashayed onto Twitter with another gaffe for the ages. This one, however, was so simple, even an elementary student could call her out on it.
Ivanka posted a picture of herself on Twitter wearing a red formal dress with her children peeking out from underneath it. She accompanied it with a simple caption. “Peak-a-boo!”
Cue the sound of a thousand faces slapping into palms.
As any elementary school student will tell you, “peak” refers to the highest height, while “peek” refers to a furtive glance. We didn’t even have to go to the dictionary to find this definition, it’s pretty standard.
People on Twitter weren't impressed by Ivanka's newest gaffe.
Again, this is a pretty elementary school mistake and people weren’t about to let it go.

“Peek” – a quick, furtive glance
“Peak” – what your brothers did in nursery school https://t.co/VdGEWCRXV8

Kremlin Barbie, it’s “Peek.” Like when your father PEEKED into the dressing rooms of underage pageant contestants. https://t.co/Wq00Vhb2A0

Ivanka also posted the tweet to Instagram, which just goes to show – you can lead the horse to social media, but you can’t force it to use spellcheck.
