Artists in the music world are continuing to use their voice in response to the death of George Floyd and the subsequent protests, with Axl Rose now blasting President Donald Trump.

The Guns N’ Roses frontman took issue with Trump’s tweet on Sunday, in which the President blamed the “lamestream media” for “doing everything within their power to foment hatred and anarchy.”

“Lamestream media ISN’T doing everything within their power 2 foment hatred n’ anarchy, that’s U!” Rose wrote in his own tweet. “As long as we get what Ur doing, that Ur FAKE NEWS n’ a truly bad, repulsive excuse 4 a person w/a sick agenda, we can work past U w/whatever it takes 2 a better, stronger future!”

Last month, Rose exchanged social media barbs with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchincalling him an “a**hole.”
