Donald Trump Jr. tweeted Thursday that federal prosecutors only dismissed the DWI charges and reckless driving against rock icon Bruce Springsteen because of “lenient privileges”.
The 43-year-old Trump Jr. on Wednesday cited the result of a post out after dismissing his 6.7 million followers.
“I’d say it’s #WhitePrivilege, but we all know it’s really #LiberalPrivilege,” read the post, which was retweeted over 3,200 times as of Thursday afternoon.
While prosecutors dropped the two charges, Springsteen, 71, pleaded guilty to a single count of drinking in his closed area, an arrest on 14 November at the Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook.
Prosecutors noted that Boss’s blood alcohol content was only 0.02 at the time, or well below the state’s legal limit when driving, of 0.08.
“I had two small shots of tequila,” Springsteen said during a virtual hearing.

Assistant US Attorney Adam Baker said Springsteen refused to take early breaths in the park, but he did not require the law to do so.
Baker told a judge, “While he was at the Ranger station, he underwent a legally required breath test.”
