Donald Trump, Jr. proves that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Taking a page out of his father’s playbook, Junior went on a Twitter rant about an organization who dared say something about him that wasn’t complimentary by lobbing accusations in a misspelled tweet.

On Thursday, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) released a $169 Halloween costume depicting Trump, Jr. during one of his big game hunting trips. A name tag says “half cocked” and Junior’s red hat and camouflage clothing are covered in blood and scratches with a leopard attacking him from behind. PETA’s president, Ingrid Newkirck, said when announcing the costume.

‘There’s nothing more frightful than an entitled ghoul who gets his kicks from gunning down wild animals.’

Junior, a vocal advocate for the Second Amendment, which he uses to go kill wild animals bigger than he is to prove how much of a man he is, hit back in a tweet that included a link to a Huffington Post article that blasted PETA for euthanizing animals.

‘People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is an organization that publicly claims to represent the best interest of animals — indeed their “ethical treatment.” Yet approximately 2,000 animals pass through PETA’s front door every year and very few make it out alive. The vast majority — 96 percent in 2011 — exit the facility out the back door after they have been killed, when Pet Cremation Services of Tidewater stops by on their regular visits to pick up their remains. Between these visits, the bodies are stored in the giant walk-in freezer PETA installed for this very purpose. It is a freezer that cost $9,370 and, like the company which incinerates the bodies of PETA’s victims, was paid for with the donations of animal lovers who could never have imagined that the money they donated to help animals would be used to end their lives instead. In fact, in the last 11 years, PETA has killed 29,426 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other domestic animals.’

Of course, there is no comparison between ethically euthanizing the hundreds of thousands of animals who go uncared for and are left as strays each year and shooting wild animals for the sheer fun of it, but Junior doesn’t seem to realize that.

Twitter reacted in full force. Read some of their comments below:
