‘Burn Baby Burn’: David Crosby Deletes Tweet Cheering Trump Tower Fire
David Crosby, the iconic 1960s hippie singer-songwriter, deleted, but later confirmed a tweet cheering the fire at Trump Tower in New York City Saturday that read, “oh boy……burn baby burn”. ‘Burn baby burn’ is a rebellious chant used by Black radicals, hippies and communist revolutionaries in the Sixties that reportedly was inspired by the 1965 Watts riots.

Guterman apologized but still kept tweeting derogatory things such that he was rebuked by Eric Trump.
