Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller has responded to real estate mogul Donald Trump a day after getting hit with a flurry of insults over Twitter.
Rather than add fuel to the fire, Miller extended his hand to the Trumpster.
“i’m not trying to put any negative energy into the world.@realDonaldTrump let’s be friends.,” Mac tweeted February 1st. (Mac Miller’s Twitter)
Yesterday, Donald threatened to take legal action toward Mac for using his name as a song title.
“Little @MacMiller, you illegally used my name for your song “Donald Trump” which now has over 75 million hits.,” he tweeted January 31st.
“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!” (Donald Trump’s Twitter)
A few sites speculated whether or not Trump’s page may have been compromised.
By the end of it though, we were starting to think that maybe The Donald got hacked, because this one was just odd: “Little @MacMiller–I have more hair than you do and there’s a slight age difference.” The video for “Donald Trump” currently has over 75 million views on YouTube. In a recent interview, Mac Miller wasn’t too enthusiastic about The Donald. Mac isn’t a fan of his political aspirations–can you blame him?–and hates even more when Trump references his name on Twitter. “He’s being such a f—ing douchebag…he still tweets the video … and says things like ‘Mac Miller. You’re welcome.'” (RapFix)
Back in summer 2011, Trump reacted to Miller’s self-titled ode and proclaimed him a hip-hop great.
“A lot of people are calling me about the Mac Miller rap song,” Trump said in a video. “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. So in one way, I’m proud of him. I haven’t actually seen the , 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.” (From The Desk of Trump)
