John Legend responded to House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Father’s Day message with an expletive amid accounts of families being separated at the border.
“Seriously, f*** you. Reunite the families at the border and we can talk about father’s day,” the singer tweeted to Ryan Saturday.
His post was a response to one the Wisconsin lawmaker had sent out earlier in the day featuring a videoabout his family and the caption, “My life changed the day I became a father. Liza, Charlie, and Sam are my highest priority. Wishing all of the dads out there a happy early #FathersDay.”
Legend’s retort was one of several messages he has posted about the Trump administration’s decision to separate children from their parents at the border.
President Trump, meanwhile, has blamed the Democrats for the family separations.
“Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change!” Trump tweeted on Sunday.
According to CNN, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security revealed Friday that between April 19 and May 31, nearly 2,000 minors had been separated from their guardians at the border.
