Teenage Billionaire Jokes About Killing Obama

Peter Brant II, the son of billionaire publishing magnate Peter Brant and supermodel Stephanie Seymour, tweeted some disgraceful comments about President Obama on election night.

Chatting with his friend Andrew Warren, Brant said that he had a "contingency plan" if higher taxes made them poor - "Kill Obama, hahaha."

According to Jezebel, the 18-year-old Brant then posted a screen cap of the discussion on Instagram.

For those unfamiliar with Brant, he and his brother Harry were featured in September's Vanity Fair as "Little Lord Flauntleroys":

Born to a supermodel mother and a mogul dad, Peter and Harry Brant have emerged as the dandy teenage boulevardiers of New York society. Aside from the Met Ball (No invitation? After they’d cued up the gold-plated Rolls-Royce and the baby panther in the diamond necklace?), the boys are everywhere, pursuing the pleasures of the 1 percent, even as bankruptcy, tabloid scandal, and the threat of divorce have shadowed their family.

Now the elder is once again the talk of the town, but certainly not in a way he or his parents would  like him to be.
