Trump Jr. comes to "black free-thinker" Kanye's defense, calls Alyssa Milano an "entitled white liberal"
Liberal Hollywood cannot stomach megastar Kanye West's staunch support for President Trump, but the rapper just won't give up.
Donald Trump Jr. has accused Hollywood star Alyssa Milano of bullying "black free-thinker" Kanye West for his political beliefs. The pushback came after the actress posted a controversial cartoon of Kanye with the President's trademark hair on Twitter, with a message saying: "Make Kanye Kanye again." The cartoon shows a superimposition of Kanye's face over Trump's.
The pro-Trump megastar sparked outrage from the left after an appearance on 'Saturday Night Live' over the weekend, prompting Milano to post the said image on Monday.
Here's what Alyssa Milano shared on Twitter:
Kanye had called for the 13th amendment to be abolished as it was "slavery in disguise" after delivering an impromptu speech expressing his support for the president as he donned a "Make America Great Again" hat.
However, Don Jr. rushed to defend Kanye from the incoming backlash and called Milano an entitled "white liberal," Daily Mail reports. "Shocking! It's almost like this white liberal thinks she's entitled to bully this black free-thinker into not being himself or believing what he wants," he wrote on a retweeted post by Milano.

In response, Milano posted a link to her op-ed for far-left news network CNN, explaining why US citizens "cannot let Kavanaugh and Trump be the lasting face of who we are as a nation."
"You should have someone read you my new op-ed for @CNN," she addressed Don Jr. in her tweet. The actress, who has been one of the strongest firebrands in the #MeToo movement, has consistently slammed Trump on various occasions. On the other hand, Kanye has upset many liberals after voicing his support for the populist US leader.
Kanye closed the SNL event singing a track off his latest album while wearing Trump's signature red MAGA hat.
He made it a point to stay on the microphone even after the live show ended and delivered a completely impromptu monologue voicing his support for Trump and bringing to the fore various other political issues. According to a footage posted on Instagram shared by comedian Chris Rock, West said: "So many times I talk to a white person about this, and they say, 'How could you like Trump? He's racist.' Well, if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago."
West also targeted establishment Democrats for forcing marginalized classes to be dependent on welfare checks and freebies and yet again expressed his interest in running for the presidential office in 2020. That said, the New York audience gave mixed responses Kanye's words, with some applauding his speech while others booing him down.
President Trump was quick to recognize Kanye's support and lauded him for his performance on Sunday. "Like many, I don't watch 'Saturday Night Live' (even though I past hosted it) - no longer funny, no talent or charm," Trump wrote. "It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told 'no'), was great. He's leading the charge!"
Later, Kanye doubled down on his beliefs, posting a selfie on Instagram wearing the same MAGA hat with a message: "We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment."
"The 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise meaning it never ended. We are the solution that heals," he later added, but also clarified that we must "not abolish but let's amend the 13th amendment We apply everyone's opinions to our platform."
Being one of the few prominent African-American celebrities to voice their support for the President, Kanye has stunned fans across the world. After Trump's landslide presidential victory in 2016, the rapper went to visit his "brother" at Trump Tower to congratulate him. His wife, reality star Kim Kardashian, has visited the White House twice until now to discuss various socio-political issues with the commander-in-chief.
