Is it true that Bruce Springsteen reportedly insulted Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is behind all these?
The musician was recently slammed by critics after he called Donald Trump a moron in an interview with The Rolling Stones.
But as the negative comments heat up, Bruce Springsteen reportedly insulted Donald Trump again via a Twitter post and called him an “asshole.”
But what made the alleged tweet more speculative was that he added a hashtag #ImwithHer, which may be in reference with his support with Hillary Clinton.
Does this mean Bruce Springsteen was instructed by the former secretary of state to bash Donald Trump in his social media?
However, a Snopes report clarified that the tweet came from the account name “Bruce Spingsteen” and not from the original account of the musician.
Snopes added that Occupy Democrats earlier reported about the tweet, saying it came directly from Bruce Springsteen without verifying the facts.
The report quoted the publication, “Bruce Springsteen doubled down on his remarks against Trump, following controversial comments he made in his interview with Rolling Stone. The rock legend and American icon ripped into the Republican nominee, making it absolutely clear that Springsteen doesn’t care what Trump supporters think about his opinion on the candidate.”
The fake Twitter account has now been deactivated while Occupy Democratic still has not taken down their report despite verified claims that it was not the musician.
A Snopes reports said Bruce Springsteen’s verified Twitter account is only for his music gigs and not for his personal views on politics.
Bruce Springsteen’s name was drag into controversy when he called Donald Trump a “moron” during an interview with The Rolling Stones.
When asked what made the presidential candidate a phenomenon, the musician said, “Well, you know, the republic is under siege by a moron, basically. The whole thing is tragic. Without overstating it, it’s a tragedy for our democracy. When you start talking about elections being rigged, you’re pushing people beyond democratic governance.”
