Reality TV star and publicity-obsessed magnate Donald Trump is threatening to sue a rap artist.
The real estate mogul is upset over Mac Miller’s song Donald Trump, reports AllHipHop. Trump threatened legal action against the Pittsburgh-based Mac Miller via Twitter. Trump tweeted, “Little @MacMiller, I’m now going to teach you a big boy lesson about lawsuits and finance. You ungrateful dog!”
Trump says he now wants royalties because of the use of his name in the song. In the past, Trump has been supportive of Miller and even once referred to him as the next Eminem. The video has garnered more than 75 million views since it was released with Trump’s blessing.
Trump began the legal threats after a video clip went live of Complex Magazine naming Mac Miller “Complex’s Man of the Year.” In the interview, both Miller and Complex’s owner Mark Ecko refer to Trump very negatively.
