Michigan billionaire businessman Donald Foss was derided by his daughter at his own funeral as a “racist, misogynistic, xenophobic” Donald Trump supporter, Media Take Out has learned.
Foss’ child — who does not identify as either male or female and uses they/them pronouns — hit headlines this week after proudly posting footage to TikTok that showed them chastising their dad in front of stunned mourners.
Samatha Foss was the biracial daughter to Donald Foss — the founder and former CEO of auto loans company Credit Acceptance.
The Michigan-based magnate died from cancer on Aug. 14 at the age of 78 and Media Take Out confirmed that he had a net worth of nearly $2 billion at the time of his passing.
Despite growing up with extreme wealth and privilege, biracial Samantha — who is a self-described “black supremacist” — renounced their father at his funeral. She hit him with some very hard truths, saying her father’s death had “solidified the fact that you’ll never be what you could have been, but only what you are — and what you are is a racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, Trump-loving, cis, straight white man.”
“Dad, please know that I am grateful, and highly aware of what you have done for this family, [but] I still don’t miss you,” they declared. “When you died, I felt like there was a hole. I missed something, but it wasn’t you. It was the idea of what you could [have] become.
“I missed being able to hope and wish that one day you’d turn a corner and see the world from my perspective,” they continued.
Concluding the tirade, Samantha stated: “You are everything I aspire not to be and I refuse to stand up here and sing the praises of a man who is the paradigm of white supremacy … I swear to God, I will make this world a better place. Not at all because of you, but in exact opposition to you.”
One friend to the late Foss attempted to refute Samantha’s claims that he was racist.
“He dated women of color, he married her mother, if anybody loved a black woman, it was Don,” the source declared. “[Samantha] went to a very diverse high school in Michigan, they played lacrosse and he [Donald] would go to their games. They didn’t lack for anything.”
Samantha was reportedly raised by Donald and his wife in a $7.3 million mansion in Franklin, Michigan, before they sold the pricey property in 2020.
The elder Foss — who was the son of a used car salesman — founded Credit Acceptance in 1972 before selling it many years later. In 2019, it had total assets upwards of $7 billion.
The businessman later became a prominent philanthropist, creating the Don Foss Annual Scholarship in 1998 and the Don Foss Endowed Scholarship in 2015, which have awarded more than 630 scholarships to students.
