When the video of Barron Trump, came out in public, the future first lady Melania Trump took actions to remove it from the internet. In the video is shown her 10-year-old son making “strange movements in his seat and exhibited “anti-social” behavior while onstage during his father’s acceptance speech on Election Night. This provoke many speculations of him being autistic.
On November 11, YouTube user James Hunter posted a video entitled, “Is Barron Trump Autistic? #StopTheBullying,”
But the video received a lot of attention last week when comedian Rosie O’Donnell shared it on her Twitter account. Donald Trump and Rosie O’Donnell were openly arguing for years.
According to TMZ, an attorney retained by Melania Trump has sent a letter to the video’s creator ordering him to take it down or else face legal action.
In a statement to Gossip Cop on Monday, Hunter — who claims he himself is autistic — said he “never meant to hurt” the Trump family and that he had intended for the video to combat bullying.
“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,” Hunter told the outlet.
Although Hunter said that he would take the video down if told, the video remained active on YouTube as of Tuesday afternoon.
Charles J. Harder, Melania Trump’s attorney, said that the video made the bullying of her son worse after O’Donnell tweeted it out.
“The video allegedly seeks to ‘stop the bullying’ of Barron Trump. Not true,” the letter reads, according to TMZ. “The video did instigate further bullying by Rosie O’Donnell and others.”
Many users were against O’Donnell tweet about the 10-year-old boy having an autism, and they were also against spreading the rumors. After the accusations O’Donnell deleted the tweet but later defended it in a poem posted on her website.
Meanwhile, Hunter says he’s “been in contact with Melania Trump’s lawyer. This video will be deleted in 24 hours and I will publish a full retraction and apology to Melania and Barron Trump.”
