Late Monday afternoon, with a new report claiming Macy’s is “taking it in the shorts” after firing Trump, the candidate let everyone know how thrilled he is that people are boycotting the retail giant.

“I am so happy that people are boycotting Macy’s,” Trump tweeted.

The billionaire developer included a link to a report by TMZ that said “thousands of customers are cutting up their Macy’s credit card in protest.”

Sources told TMZ: “Macy’s has received complaints from approximately 30,000 customers since ending its relationship with Trump nearly two weeks ago.”

The report said the store has been “inundated with complaints” from customers who believe the chain is unfairly punishing Trump for his views on illegal immigration.

“Our sources say thousands of customers have vowed never to shop at Macy’s again and many of them say they’re cutting up their Macy’s credit card to make a statement,” TMZ reported.

People are said to be expressing their anger by phone, Facebook and mail.

A Macy’s spokesperson told TMZ: “Our Facebook page is often times used by our customers to express their feelings or points of view. Many times it does not correlate to any action.”

On July 6, Trump tweeted out: “@Macys stock just dropped. Interesting. So many people calling to say they are cutting up their @Macys credit card. Thank you!”
