*Don Cheadle did some explosive tweeting of his own over the weekend, setting off a firestorm after saying that President Trump once used the N-word during a golf tournament with the father of one of the actor’s friends.

“Hated him since he asked my friend’s father at a Doral pro-am if he ever ‘f—ed a n—-r…’” the Oscar-nominated actor tweeted on Sunday. “Did it for me.”

The actor left it at that, offering no further details about the encounter, or the identity of his friend — or her father. This of course caused a number of followers to question his claim, with some writing off Trump’s alleged racism as more “locker room talk.”

“If I taped her father swearing to it on a stack of bibles you’d STILL say it was a lie and you know it,” Cheadle wrote about demands to substantiate his claims. “There’s no compelling ‘proof’ for U.”

The actor also roasted Trump supporters who were quick to defend the president despite his questionable record on race issues throughout his real estate career. “Aw, what’s a couple of N bombs between friends?” he asked.
