Peter Brant II’s ‘Contingency Plan’: ‘Kill Obama Hahaha’

Some people still think it is OK to joke about killing a U.S. President.

According to Jezebel, teen billionaire Peter Brant II is one of them.

The son of publishing magnate, Peter Brant Sr, the young billionaire was in a text message exchange with Andrew Warren, who “describes himself on Twitter as “NYC/HAMPTONS” and says the election is going to make him ‘poor’ now, obviously.” as reported by Jezebel.

And, eventually, he joked about killing President Barack Obama. The not-so-funny threat on Obama’s life is pictured above.

Here is a rundown of the exchange, as reported by Jezebel, below:

If you’re teenaged billionaire Peter Brant II, the Greenwich-raised son of paper magnate Peter Brant and supermodel Stephanie Seymour, you don’t exactly welcome that outcome. If you’re teenaged billionaire Peter Brant II, you exchange snarky text messages about Romney’s defeat with your friend Andrew Warren, who describes himself on Twitter as “NYC/HAMPTONS” and says the election is going to make him “poor” now, obviously. And Andrew jokes about how at least women will still have rights, except, “oh wait I don’t care.” And you, Peter Brant II, joke about having “a contingency plan: Kill Obama, hahaha.” Hahaha!

Then you screenshot that charming display of wit and trenchant political analysis and post that shit on Instagram.

Photo and comment thread screencapped from Statigram (you must be logged in and approved to follow @peter_brantii to view it); the part where Peter Brant II tells a commenter to jump off a cliff is particularly lovely. Peter Brant II’s Instagram account is now private but as of this morning the photo had not been deleted.

Some of the transcript of the text exchange is below.
