Among those leading the voice of outrage was Donald Trump Jr., who wrote: “Try to imagine one of the Trump kids dropping the n-word.
“Real quote from Hunter: ‘n***a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates.’ #RacistHunter.”
Conservative activist Scott Presler also piled in on Hunter, writing: “Joe Biden’s son used the n-word multiple times in text messages with his lawyer.
“I wonder where he learned that. Like father, like son. To our global community & people of color, we apologize for the first family — a worldwide embarrassment.”
“If @DonaldJTrumpJr had just ONE text like this, the media mob would be enraged!!! Where is the #cancelculture #RacistHunter,” asked former Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson.
Right-wing TV host John Cardillo added: “When you grow up with your dad telling you a desegregated school is a ‘racial jungle,’ of course racial slurs are part of your everyday vocabulary.”

The uproar surrounding Hunter was ignited by a report in the Daily Mail after the outlet claimed to have obtained messages between him and his $845 per-hour lawyer, George Mesires.
The report claimed the text messages had been lifted from a laptop belonging to Hunter.
In one alleged exchange dated January 2019, Hunter appears to write to Mesires: “I only love you because you’re black … true dat n***a.”
An exchange from a month earlier in December 2018 purports to show Hunter writing: “how much money do I owe you. Becaause [sic] n***a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates.”
Mesires responded: “That made me snarf my coffee.”
“That’s what im saying ni…” Hunter added, cutting off the racial slur before texting an image to his lawyer.
“Why are you so tan?” Mesires said in response to the image, the Mail reported.
“I’m sorry for sexting you accidentally that was meant for another friend named Georgia,” he continued.

Later on in the conversation, the two begin to discuss unconditional love and where it can be found.
“God loves you unconditionally. Beau loves you unconditionally,” Mesires writes, referring to Hunter’s brother who passed away from cancer in 2015.
“Children are too young to understand what it means. But you will show them,” the lawyer continues.
Hunter then drops the N-word yet again in his reply.
“OMG n***a did you just [sic] a fictional character from the imagination of the collective frightened and my dead brothers [sic] unconditional love is what I should rely on and my kids aren’t children George,” he wrote.
The text conversation then shows Hunter go on to make several jokes about his penis.
The Daily Mail also reported that on Hunter’s laptop, he had a meme of his father and Barack Obama saved that also used the racial slur.
The meme shows a picture of Biden and Obama embracing with the caption, “Obama: Gonna miss you man. Joe: Can I say it? Just this once? Obama: *sigh* go ahead. Joe: You my n***a, Barack.”
The meme was saved in June of 2017, according to the outlet.

Donald Trump Jr. retweeted the story with the hashtag #RacistHunter along with the message, “Hunter Biden used the n-word multiple times in casual conversation, text messages show.”
GOP operative Arthur Schwartz wrote: “Children aren’t born racist. Hunter Biden is no exception. He’s a product of the Biden family household.”

Various users accused Twitter of suppressing the search results for the hashtag, posting apparent screenshots showing there were “no results” for #RacistHunter. Twitter has been contacted for comment.
A number of people did come out to defend Hunter, highlighting his troubled past and addiction battles.
“Hunter Biden Is a recovering addict,” wrote one user. “I am sure he has said things he regrets. He is not President nor does he work for us. He is a private citizen who is being targeted by a political operative. sick and sad #RacistHunter is targeting a private citizen @twitter.”
“#RacistHunter is too mild a hashtag to describe these cowards,” wrote another, tweeting a picture of Don Jr. and Eric Trump posing with a leopard they hunted.

The contents of Hunter’s laptop have led to much scandal since a hard drive from the device was first handed over to the New York Post by Rudy Giuliani last year.
The laptop, which a Delaware shop owner claims Hunter abandoned after dropping it off to get fixed, led to much speculation about his business dealings with foreign governments and past drug use.
On Monday, emails from the laptop revealed that Hunter had tried to leverage his position as the then-Vice President’s son to allegedly help a Romanian business tycoon avoid prison time for bribery allegations in 2016.
