Real estate tycoon, and “The Apprentice” boss Donald Trump is upset about something, big surprise there. This time Trump is going after rapper Mac Miller over royalties for a song called, of course, “Donald Trump.” The song’s video has received over 75 million views on YouTube, and Trump thinks he’s entitled to a slice of the pie.
Rather than go to a court of law, Trump decided to head to the court of public opinion, by going after Miller on Twitter. Through a string of tweets Thursday, Donald let his frustration out. “Little @MacMiller,” he tweeted, “I want the money, not the plaque you gave me!” Trump also threatened legal action, tweeting, “Little @MacMiller, I’m now going to teach you a big boy lesson about lawsuits and finance. You ungrateful dog!”
The song in question, released nearly two years ago, is a profanity-laced rap about what Miller would do if he were as rich as Trump. The answer is, naturally, take over the world. Before ending his diatribe about Miller, Trump made sure to mock his haircut as well, tweeting, “Little @MacMiller – I have more hair than you do and there’s a slight age difference.” The irony of Donald Trump mocking another person’s hair is lost on nobody. So far, no response from Miller.
