John Legend Starts Twitter War with Donald Trump Jr…And It Is Entertaining To Say The Least

Pop singer-songwriter John Legend and Donald Trump Jr., former Ivy League classmates, unloaded on each other in a heated Twitter battle Friday night.

The two started exchanging barbs on Twitter when Legend referred to Trump Jr.’s father, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, as a “racist” following the cancellation of his Chicago rally, which was postponed due to violent protests.

“Ha 5 students when asked why they were protesting couldn’t even answer,” Trump Jr. first tweeted. “The participation media/micro aggression generation is pretty sad!”


Responding moments later, Legend tweeted, “I think they were protesting your racist father. This isn’t complicated.”

The two continued sparring over the musician’s charge.

“Here we go again,” Trump Jr. wrote in response. “That can’t be the answer for everything you don’t like. That’s why the country is so divided now!”

But Legend offered a different perspective: “No, it’s just the answer when racist racists are saying racist sh*t and are endorsing the KKK.”

Following those comments, both Trump Jr. and Legend stopped tweeting each other. However, one apparent Trump supporter chimed in with a now-deleted tweet, slamming the popular singer for having “no education” — an inaccurate claim.

Legend quickly corrected the record, telling the Twitter user, “the Donalds and I graduated from the same university, funny enough.”

Legend graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania in 1999 with a degree in English, concentrated in African-American literature and culture, according to the Daily Mail.

Trump Jr. graduated in 2000 from the university’s Wharton School, the same place his father received his business degree, with a bachelor of science in finance, real estate and marketing, according to hisLinkedIn profile.

  1. Oh good John ledgend, study African American culture, then you know it was your own people who sold slaves to Democrats and Republicans freed the slaves and Africans were not the only slave, Asians, Irish was actually one of the first some of my forefathers were kidnapped and sold. And I am also not only Irish, Scottish but Native American, Cherokee Indian. We all need to start building America back up strong before we too become a 3rd world country with more killings and bombing on our own land. And what are you and the rest of your elite millionaire groupies going to do to the slave trade and trafficking and killing that is still going on right now with women and children before more hit here and in America which is going on as I write this, kids and women being kidnapped here in America and around the world. Trump also has African American followers and they even say he is not racist. Quit spewing your bullshit and help take up arms to protect the true problems of the world. The kidnapping, trafficking and killings going on around the world. It’s easy for you rich people cause you can pay for bodyguards to protect you and your family but the true working class can’t that why we stand with the 2nd Amendment! Also to let you know my family have sons married and children of Asian, Mexican and cousins married to African American with children and they are all beautiful and we’ll educated, so don’t even try to cut down my beautiful family!
