The tweet began with a joke about the Republican frontrunner having a small penis, a regular topic in this election season, a few silly emojis, a photo of the candidate, and ended with the showstopping: “PS HIS SON KILLED MY FRIEND.”
It seems, however, that the music legend was referring to her animal friends, and the fact that Trump’s sons are big game trophy hunters, judging by the photos she subsequently tweeted.
“Animal rights activists are revolted by a series of trophy photos that have emerged showing Eric and Donald Trump Jr. posing with a dead elephant, kudu, civet cat and waterbuck while on a big game safari in Zimbabwe last year. In one photo, Donald Jr. proudly holds a dead elephant’s tail in one hand and a knife in the other. In another, the brothers are seen standing beside a 12' 8" crocodile hanging from a noose off a tree. Activists obtained the photos and created [a] video montage of the Trumps' big hunt,” the Gothamist wrote in a 2012 article titled ‘Photos: Donald Trump's Sons Awesome At Killing Elephants And Other Wildlife.’
Last year, another trophy hunter made global headlines, becoming for a moment the most hated man in the United States, after killing Cecil the Lion, a protected black maned lion in Zimbabwe.
