The latest twitter rampage comes compliments of top business mogul Donald Trump.
Trumps latest twitter rant is directed at rapper Mac Miller. The businessman and host of The Apprentice franchise is threatening to sue the rapper, claiming he illegally used his name in the song ‘Donald Trump.’
In a set of tweets from the mogul’s @realDonaldTrump account it is clear that Trump is enraged: “”Little @macmiller, you illegally used my name for your song ‘Donald Trump’ which now has over 75 million hits,” he continues. “Little @macmiller, I want the money not the plaque you gave me! Little @macmiller, I’m now going to teach you a big boy lesson about lawsuits and finance. You ungrateful dog! Little @macmiller—I have more hair than you do and there’s a slight age difference.” Miller reportedly has not responded to any of the tweets aimed at him.
Interestingly this is a complete about-face from Trump who last August praised the rapper on YouTube. He said back then, “A lot of people are calling me about the Mac Miller rap song. Now, it’s named ‘Donald Trump.’ Maybe you should pay me a lot of money, but it just did over 20 million people, tuning into Mac Miller,” he said. “So in one way, I’m proud of him. I haven’t actually seen the language; it’s a little hard to understand on the song itself. Probably, it’s not the cleanest language you’ve ever heard, but this kid is the new Eminem. Everybody says he’s fantastic. Let’s see what it is. But the ‘Donald Trump’ song just hit over 20 million, that’s not so bad. I’m very proud of him.”
We all await the outcome of this feud and if Trump will file a suit against the Pittsburgh rapper. This would not be the first time an artist would be sued for using a celebrity name in a song. In 2005, Rosa Parks settled a suit against OutKast for their 1998 song that used her name in the title.
