John Legend Rips Donald Trump Jr. in Twitter Battle

The Oscar winner threw some classy shade when his education was questioned.

Word to the wise — and the racists: don't mess with John Legend. Donald Trump Jr., the son of presidential hopeful Donald Trump, learned this the hard way when he criticized five students who were protesting his father at a rally in Chicago on Friday.

Check out what he said, and the singer's priceless response, below:

Trump Jr. fired back, blaming Legend for "unnecessarily" attacking his father, blaming him for the country's "division" in the process:
