Donald Trump Jr. tried to mock a report showing that air pollution disproportionately hurts blacks and Hispanics, and he was met with scorn and ridicule.


A new study found that black Americans are exposed to 56 more pollution than they cause through consumption, while Hispanics are exposed to 63 percent more than they add to the atmosphere, and the president's son attempted to joke away the research findings.

"Just when you thought you’ve seen it all... now we have RACIST AIR," Trump Jr. tweeted. "This insanity has to stop."

About 100,000 Americans die from air pollution each year -- more than car crashes and murders combined -- and other social media users blasted the president's son for making light of the problem.
