John Legend Calls Donald Trump “Racist” In Twitter Battle With Donald Trump Jr.

John Legend took to Twitter to slam Donald Trump as a racist on Friday, March 11, after Donald Trump Jr. criticized the protesters who shut down his father’s Chicago, Illinois, rally earlier that day. You can view the tweet below.

Legend didn’t let the comment slide and immediately¬†fired¬†back at Trump Jr.

Trump Jr. continued to fan the flames and responded back to Legend, downplaying the comment as another unnecessary stab at his father.

Supporters and critics of Trump jumped into the Twitter fight with their own thoughts, arguing with Legend, Trump Jr. and also amongst themselves. One particular user found himself in the Twitter spotlight when he took a jab at Legend. The singer got the last word.

Legend and both Trumps attended the University of Pennsylvania.

On Friday, protesters at the University of Illinois at Chicago filled the arena where Trump was supposed to lead a rally. The GOP presidential hopeful postponed the event due to safety concerns.

Earlier this week, a Black protester at a campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina, was punched and attacked by a man in a cowboy hat. He was later identified as 78-year-old, John McGraw. At least two officers who saw the incident happen did not immediately take action to arrest McGraw.
