John Legend Completely Shut Down Paul Ryan's Father's Day Tweet With Some Truth

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

Grammy Award winning musician/singer, John Legend, who has been nicknamed "the nice guy of R&B" finally had enough and slammed Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for his incredibly tone deaf father's day tweet. 

Ryan took to Twitter to share a smiling photo and talk about joy of being a parent, when he very well knows Donald Trump and the GOP's new "no tolerance" immigration policy has ripped 2,000 children away from their parents. 

It seems Legend, who is rarely seen without a smile on his face, had enough. We can't say we blame him. 

He wrote in a captioned tweet to Ryan:

Seriously, f--- you. Reunite the families at the border and we can talk about father's day.

The reason this is coming into the forefront is that the current administration upped the charges against parents coming over the border to an automatic federal crime where with previous administrations families with children were referred to immigration courts. 

What seems on paper to be a slight change has caused significant trauma to children.
