Melania Trump FURIOUS After Rosie O’Donnell Posts Video Saying Barron Trump Is Autistic
Melania Trump threatened to sue the Youtuber this week who posted a video claiming her 10 year-old son Barron Trump suffers from autism.
According to TMZ, it all started when Rosie O’Donnell, who has been feuding with the president-elect for over a decade, posted the following on Twitter:
Melania was reportedly furious about the video, which can be seen above this story, and her attorney Charles J. Harder quickly released a letter in which he threatened to sue whoever is behind it.
“The video allegedly seeks to ‘stop the bullying’ of Barron Trump. Not true … The video did instigate further bullying by Rosie O’Donnell and others,” Harder wrote.
Daily Mail reported that James Hunter has now been exposed as the person who created the video, but he claims he only did it to protect Barron from bullying.
“I’m honestly kinda scared right now,” Hunter told Gossip Cop. “The only reason I made the video is because I saw how much social media was bullying Barron Trump, and I wanted it to stop. I’d be really sad if I’ve made the situation worse, but I never could’ve imagined that the video would get so much press.”
“I was just sending it privately to people who were bullying him to explain to them that Barron might be autistic, and that’s 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,” he added. “I myself am on the spectrum, 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 a very smart and I’ll think she’ll be a great First Lady.”
This came after Rosie herself faced a ton of backlash for dragging Barron into her pathetic feud with his father.
“Rosie, as a parent of a child with autism – I am extremely insulted. This wasn’t meant to help raise awareness. Just plain cruel,” one Twitter user said.
“I am the mom of an 11 yr old with ASD and I am in tears that Rosie did this!! Shame on her!!,” one angry mother wrote.
“Is Rosie O’Donnell really going after Barron Trump? That’s low even for her. Attacking children bc you don’t like their parent (s) is wrong,” another person said.
“I think it’s disgusting and evil what Rosie O’Donnell said about Trump’s son. It’s one thing to attack a politician but it’s evil to attack their children,” someone added.
