Vanity Fair magazine broke a record for subscriptions on the same day that President-elect Donald Trump blasted the magazine on Twitter, increasing subscribers a reported hundredfold.

The magazine had the highest number of subscriptions sold in a single day among Condé Nast publications on Thursday, the company told Folio Magazine.

The magazine put up a banner on its website following the criticism from Trump, calling itself the “magazine Trump doesn’t want you to read” and encouraging readers to subscribe.

{mosads}Trump targeted Vanity Fair on Twitter after the publication published a negative review of Trump Grill, calling it possibly the worst restaurant in America. According to the report by Folio, the review received 1 million unique views since Trump tweeted his criticism.

“Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @VanityFair Magazine,” Trump tweeted, adding an attack at the magazine’s editor.
