John Legend and Donald Trump Jr. definitely don't see eye-to-eye on Trump's father.
The R&B singer took aim at the Republican frontrunner's son, Donald Trump Jr., on Twitter Friday night.
Donald Trump Sr. cancelled his Chicago rally Friday amid tension and safety concerns among supporters and protesters. Trump's Jr. posted a tweet commenting that protesters didn't know why they were protesting.
Ha 5 students when asked why they were protesting couldn't even answer. The participation medal/micro aggression generation is pretty sad!— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) March 12, 2016
It's pretty embarrassing. Trump supporters were articulate and the antis could barely speak and had no answers. https://t.co/FIhnHkEXDG— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) March 12, 2016
Bustle reports that major U.S. news outlets, including CNN, USA Today and the Chicago Tribune, did not feature any interviews with protesters that matched Trump Jr.'s claim in their coverage.
Legend wasn't about to let Trump Jr.'s commentary go unchecked. The Grammy and Oscar winner responded plainly, tweeting, "I think they were protesting your racist father."
.@DonaldJTrumpJr I think they were protesting your racist father. This isn't complicated.— John Legend (@johnlegend) March 12, 2016
Trump Jr. shot back:
Here we go again. That can't be the answer for everything you don't like. That's why the country is so divided now! https://t.co/BFh3XNsl7F— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) March 12, 2016
One Trump supporter called Legend's education into question, which Legend shut down:
Legend and both Trumps graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, one of eight Ivy League schools.
From there, the Twitter storm raged on:
@jaygiannone he's not racist?? Where have you been??— Not Your Babe ♡ (@AmandaSykes4L) March 12, 2016
@johnlegend got em— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 12, 2016
Not surprisingly, Mrs. Legend (otherwise known as supermodel Chrissy Teigen) has her husband's back.
