Last night, Presidential hopeful Donald Trump canceled an event at the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion due to "security concerns" amidst a rousing collection of protestors some of which who took to chanting the refrain "We gonna be alright" from Kendrick Lamar's song "Alright" after the Donald no-showed. In the wake of the subsequent media fervor, the billionaire's son Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to defend his father and squelch the message of those who'd gathered to shut the rally down.
Ha 5 students when asked why they were protesting couldn't even answer. The participation medal/micro aggression generation is pretty sad!— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) March 12, 2016
One person who didn't take kindly to Trump Jr.'s claim was "Glory" singer John Legend who tweeted a rather plainly stated, but revealing response.
.@DonaldJTrumpJr I think they were protesting your racist father. This isn't complicated.— John Legend (@johnlegend) March 12, 2016
Trump Jr. passively dismissed Legend's claim with some benign generalities.
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! https://t.co/BFh3XNsl7F— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) March 12, 2016
Following that exchange, when another user came at Legend about his own intellectual prowess, the singer revealed a rather interesting fact.
