Donald Trump Jr. shared a meme on his Instagram account that some people believed was an LGBT joke.

The meme shows a picture of a person standing on the street wearing a fur dress and holding a designer bag. The person also has blue hair, blue lipstick and red nails.

“No no, don’t tell me let me guess…Trump is not your president?” the meme reads. Trump Jr. captioned the meme “I’ll take that bet all day long” along with the crying laughing face and American flag emojis.

Some people thought the meme was mocking the LGBT community and called out Trump Jr. for the joke.

“Are u against LGBT people?” one person asked. Trump Jr. responded: “No, not at all and you can find plenty of evidence against that.”

Other users retorted back to him that the meme was offensive. He replied asking what is“homophobic about this post?”

“Are you implying this person has to be LGBT without any knowledge? I guess you’re the one hiding your beliefs,” Trump Jr. added.

In 2017, Trump Jr. also liked a transphobic tweet aimed at transgender soldier Chelsea Manning. After it was announced Manning was banned from entering Canada, Trump Jr. liked a tweet that included a clown’s face, a pair of scissors and two peanuts, a dig at Manning’s transgender identity.
