Aaron Carter just pulled a Kanye West.
Only instead of telling white critics to stop listening to his music, the singer went on a bizarre Twitter rant that highlighted his support for Donald Trump.
“Does America want to have a president who FOLLOWS or someone who leads?” Carter asked on social media. “I vote For@realdonaldtrump.”
Okay, fair enough we guess.
Based on various polls and primary results, Carter is not the only person who feels this way.
But after followers voiced their displeasure with his view, Carter proceeded to really jump off the deep end.
“People look for anything and any chance they can to hate me for something it’s always SOMETHING I fight back and for myself not changing,” he wrote, later adding:
“Just looking at these comment from trolls in my mentions just PROVES how immature our country has become. GROW UP in more ways than 1 thx.”
We’ll refrain from pointing out the irony in saying the country is immature… while simultaneously saying you support a name-caller such as Donald Trump for President.
Carter did say that he doesn’t agree with Trump’s stances on gay marriage or immigration, but “70%” of him is on Trump’s side, so this is the message he has for haters:
When things finally escalated beyond a point where Twitter was suffient, Carter went on Periscope to speak his mind in an expletive-laden video.
“People want to call me this and that, and this and that,” he ranted.
“And they want to hate and do this and that, but guess what, bam, bam, bam!” said Carter, punching towards the camera. “I’m gonna fucking fight back, motherf-cker.”
Concluded the artist:
“Bam, bam, bam! One, two, three. The third one’s gonna knock you out. Don’t f-ck with me.”
We’re just gonna back away slowly now and say that Carter definitely sounds like the the type of person who would vote for Donald Trump.
