John Legend Condemns “Racist” Trump
John Legend, never shy about his disdain for Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, outright called the presumptive candidate a racist this week. Legend and Donald Trump, Jr. engaged in a spat on Twitter following the violence at Trump’s canceled Chicago event.
“Ha 5 students when asked why they were protesting couldn’t even answer,” Trump, Jr. tweeted. “The participation medal/micro aggression generation is pretty sad!”
“I think they were protesting your racist father,” Legend responded. “This isn’t complicated.”
“It’s just the answer when racist racists are saying racist s–t and are endorsed by the KKK,” Legend continued, after Trump, Jr. suggested his father was being blamed unnecessarily for all the country’s divisions. Legend was referring to the endorsement Trump received from infamous Klan leader David Duke, which Trump refused to reject.
And when a Trump supporter called Legend “uneducated,” he pointed out that he attended the University of Pennsylvania, the same school as both Trumps.
It’s not the first time Legend’s family has crossed paths with Trump. His wife, supermodel Chrissy Teigen, was bashed by Trump after calling him an obscene name. Trump retweeted a user who called Teigen a “trashy gutter mouth” who “can’t hold a candle” to Trump’s wife, Melania.
