John Legend got into a Twitter beef with Donald Trump Jr. this past weekend.

Junior, who is very supportive of his father’s political campaign and platform, took to Twitter to say how he felt that protesters had no real reason to oppose his father’s rally in Chicago.

John replied by saying:  “I think they were protesting your racist father,” he wrote. “This isn’t complicated.”

From there, Legend and Trump Jr. exchanged some heated words. Check out the thread:

This isn’t the first time a Legend has gotten into it with a Trump: just last year Chrissy Teigen took shots at Trump after he promoted a meeting with black evangelists. While Trump never said anything to Chrissy directly, he did retweet a supporter of his who said: “Wow! Trashy gutter mouth woman. You can’t hold a candle 2 Melania Trump when it comes to beauty and eloquence.”
