Never let spelling get in the way of a good Twitter rant.
“Star Trek” actor LeVar Burton has been receiving hate mail intended for LaVar Ball in the middle of his feud with President Trump.
“You’re a has been actor with a thief for a son and Trump is the president of the United States. Get the picture?” one person tweeted.
“I wonder what you did to piss off your producers that they made you sit through that shit-show of an interview with @levarburton…. what an arrogant a–hole!!” another wrote to CNN host Chris Cuomo.

“LaVar Burton broke the rules of good manners. He insulted our president and the president of China. He should be ashamed that his son dishonored him by stealing,” tweeted another.
The mix-up comes a day after Ball went on CNN to defend himself against Trump, who has lashed out for not receiving enough thanks for getting three UCLA basketball players — including Ball’s son, LiAngelo — out of Chinese jail after shoplifting.
“Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar,” Trump tweeted over the weekend.
“Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!”

Burton has laughed off the confusion.
“One of many sleights I am having to endure these days,” he tweeted.
