John Legend Calls Donald Trump 'Racist' in Twitter Feud with Presidential Candidate's Son

It’s safe to say John Legend won’t be voting for Donald Trump.

The Oscar and Grammy winning singer entered in a Twitter feud with the GOP front-runner’s son Donald Trump Jr. It all started when Legend, 37, replied to Trump Jr.’s tweet about Friday’s cancelled Trump rally in Chicago.

“Ha 5 students when asked why they were protesting couldn’t even answer. The participation medal/micro aggression generation is pretty sad!” Trump Jr., 38, wrote to which Legend fired back: “@DonaldJTrumpJr I think they were protesting your racist father. This isn’t complicated.”

The musician’s pregnant wife Chrissy Teigen also retweeted and replied to her husband’s tweets writing, “@johnlegend got em.”

In response, Trump Jr. said, “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!”

Legend also engaged with “Trump trolls,” specifically one user who discredited the Underground executive producer’s higher education. “The Donalds and I graduated from the same University, funny enough,” the father-to-be said.

Trump attended Fordham University for two years before entering the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. He graduated from in 1968 with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Legend graduated from UPenn with a degree in English with an emphasis on African-American literature.
