Peter Brant II Says ‘Kill Obama’ Instagram Was A ‘Poorly Executed’ Joke

While much of the fashion world celebrated President Obama‘s Tuesday night victory with champagne, confetti, and blowout Election Night bashes, Peter Brant II was left sobbing into his (non-alcoholic) Dom Perignon. What’s a teen billionaire to do with a Democrat in office for a second term? Well, for one, text friend Andrew Warren about his “contingency plan” to kill the President now that the pair will have to suffer through four years of being “poor.”

The son of publishing mogul Peter Brant and supermodel Stephanie Seymour and the elder of New York City’s favorite pair of society spawn, Peter has an extensive social media following. Which, unfortunately for him, meant that that his decision to post said private iPhone conversation to his Instagram page led to just the teeniest bit of ire from people who didn’t find his assassination joke quite as funny as he did.

Today, Brant took to Twitter to apologize for his so-called “plan”:

I don’t Intend anything negative or harm to our President my facetious statement was a poorly executed attempt at humour, & 4 that I’m sorry

Let this be a lesson to all of you filthy rich society teens! ….or something.
