Trump denies knowing Lil Jon, who was on 'Apprentice'; Omarosa and Twitter ...

Twitter's having a field day after Trump denied knowing "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Lil Jon at the post-midterms press conference.

The rapper addressed the incident in a statement shared to Twitter in 2016, the day a report on the same topic was published by The Daily Beast .

"When this ‘Uncle Tom’ incident happened on 'Celebrity Apprentice' in the boardroom several of my cast mates and I addressed Mr. Trump immediately when we heard the comment,” the "Turn Down for What" artist wrote on Twitter.

After the Wednesday's conference, Twitter was abuzz with people who found Trump's remarks comical, including former presidential aide and "Apprentice" contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper had a similar idea, tweeting a photo of Trump next to Lil Jon, beaming and give a thumbs up.

Another user did some digging to find a Trump tweet from 2012 lauding the "fabulous" Lil Jon, and exclaiming: "The fans love him!"
