On Thursday, Donald Trump Jr took to Twitter to call out Bruce Springsteen over his dropped DUI charges. He claimed that the singer's left-leaning political views got him exonerated. This comes after the US government on Wednesday dismissed the charges of DUI and reckless driving against the singer at a virtual hearing. 

The former President's son took to the social networking site to share his thoughts. "I’d say it’s #WhitePrivilege but we all know it’s really #LiberalPrivilege," Trump Jr tweeted.

Springsteen was arrested in November in New Jersey for driving under the influence, reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area. The singer pleaded guilty to the charge of drinking in a closed area after reportedly telling the judge "I had two small shots of tequila". His other two charges were dropped Wednesday and he was fined $540.

"The evidence we reviewed indicates that after the defendant's arrest, he submitted to a breath test at the ranger station, and his BAC reading was .02, which as the court is aware is well under the legal limit of .08," Assistant US Attorney Adam Baker said.

'Liberal Privilege is when your surname is Trump'

Ever since news of the singer's partial acquittal started doing the rounds, many happened to lash back at Trump Jr with some facts that he seems to have forgotten and to explain basic things. Others corrected him saying that it is actually not liberal privilege at all.

"Hey @DonaldJTrumpJr ... “Liberal Privilage” is when your surname is Trump..." a user kindly pointed out to him. "Also the LAW. Blood alcohol level BELOW the legal level," one tweeted. "How dare they drop the DWI when his blood alcohol level was 1/5th the legal limit," another user snapped back at Trump Jr along similar lines.

'Pathetic excuse for a man'

Some more reactions from social media users were not kind to Trump Jr pointing out his own privilege.

"This douchrocket said Bruce Springsteen’s charges were dropped because of liberal privilege! Says the most Privileged Brat in America!" one tweeted. "Who is jr to talk about privilege? That’s laughable - it’s the only reason he has a voice," another one said. "Poor Junior. I guess all that coke makes one need to comment on every single bullshit thing going on in the world. What a pathetic excuse for a "man". Sad..." another user mocked him. 



 

 



 

 



 

 

While Trump Jr is busy shifting the blame, some social media users are speculating other possibilities. Many are pointing out that it is hardly a coincidence that Springsteen was let go after he announced a podcast with former President Obama on Monday titled 'Renegades: Born in the U.S.A'.

"I'm sure it's a total coincidence that the government dropped drunk driving charges against Bruce Springsteen just two days after it was announced he'd be starting a podcast with Barack Obama," one user added.
