According to reports from TMZ, Melania Trump has threatened to sue the YouTuber who posted a video claiming her 10-year-old son, Barron Trump, suffers from autism.
The tasteless video was first brought to attention by Rosie O’Donnell, who has been publicly feuding with Donald Trump, posted it on Twitter with an even more despicable caption.
Melania was understandably furious about the attack on her son. Her attorney Charles J. Harder quickly released a letter threatening to sue whoever is behind the video.
“The video allegedly seeks to ‘stop the bullying’ of Barron Trump,” Harder wrote in his statement. “Not true…The video did instigate further bullying by Rosie O’Donnell and others.”
Daily Mail reported that James Hunter has been exposed as the person created the video—but he still insists he only did it to protect the future first son.
“I’d be really sad if I’ve made the situation worse because I never could’ve imagined the video would get so much press,” Hunter told reporters. “I was just sending it privately to people who were bullying him to explain to them that Barron might be autistic and that it isn’t okay to bully him for it because I know what it’s like to be bullied for being autistic. But then Rosie O’Donnell shared it and it blew up.”
“I myself am on the spectrum,” Hunter continued, “and I honestly just wanted to bring light to the autism epidemic. I have a lot of respect for Melania Trump. I believe she’s very smart and I think she’ll be a great First Lady.”
Rosie also received immense backlash for dragging a child into her pathetic feud. She was repeatedly scolded by parents with children on the autism spectrum.
What do you think? Does Rosie owe the entire Trump family an apology? Should charges be pressed against both Hunter and her?
