Donald Trump Jr. accused Vanity Fair of buying Twitter followers on Thursday night in response to an article the outlet published claiming he was worried that his father hasn’t been sleeping since the infamous NYT op-ed came out last week.

Don Jr. quote tweeted the article and added, “What a joke, you think I worry my father isn’t sleeping? I have never and will never worry about that. Keep making crap up. Oh, VF with 4.8m “followers” how do you average less than 20 RTs for your last 20 or so posts? BUYING FOLLOWERS MUCH? SAD, PATHETIC, & IRRELEVANT!”

The Vanity Fair article is titled, “‘Trump Believes There’s A Coup’: Freaked By The Times Op-Ed, The President Is Seeing Enemies Everywhere,” and it was published Thursday afternoon.

“Don Jr. has told people he’s worried Trump isn’t sleeping because of it, a source said. Meetings have been derailed by Trump’s suspicion,” according to the article.

Earlier this month, The New York Times published an anonymous op-ed by a senior Trump administration official claiming that the administration was succeeding in spite of the president, not as a result of him. (RELATED: Five Key Questions About The New York Times’ Anonymous ‘Senior Official’)
