Donald Trump Jr. Claims 'SNL' Bullied Kanye West—And The Irony Is Almost Too Much For Twitter

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

The President's namesake, Donald Trump Jr., in an act of supreme foot-in-mouth, accused NBC's Saturday Night Live (SNL) of "bullying" rapper Kanye West—and Twitter wasn't having it.

Wearing a red MAGA hat, West performed his song Ghost Town just before the final credits of SNL this weekend and then launched into what has become one of his trademark rants—one that left audience members booing him.

West's pontification, caught and posted on Instagram stories by comedian Chris Rock, was cut short, but not before West had the chance to express his displeasure at being "bullied backstage" at SNL over wearing the hat during his performance. 

West was unclear about who, exactly, bullied him:

You see they laughing at me. You heard ’em, they scream at me, they bully me. They bullied me backstage they said, 'Don’t go out there with that hat on.' They bullied me backstage. They bullied me. And then they say I’m in a sunken place. You want to see the sunken place? Okay, I’ma listen to y’all now. Or I’ma put my Superman cape on, which means you can’t tell me what to do.
