Although it is really funny...
A viral letter supposedly written by rock star *Tommy Lee* doesn't seem to be authentic.
The open letter is aimed at President Trump, and it's extreme level of profanity is absolutely hilarious.
It opens: "Dear Fucking Lunatic..."
And contains some superb one-liners, such as this one: "Do you know how fucking insane you sound, you off-brand butt plug?"
Social media gold, no doubt - but that's actually where Tommy Lee found it, sharing someone else's post to his Facebook.
The original writer - Craig Alan Wilkins - was credited, but as *Snopes* points out even this is dubious, with huge elements of the text taken from a previous article.
The open letter borrows aspects of a piece published on the Daily Kos in December 2017 under the pseudonym Aldous J Pennyfarthing.
