YouTuber to Remove Video Implying Barron Trump is Autistic, After Melania Threatens to Sue
After TMZ contacted Hunter, and told him that Melania is threatening to sue and wants a public apology from him, he wrote, “I'm absolutely terrified right now.”
I just want to repeat myself and say that I never ever meant this as a bullying video. As someone who was diagnosed at age 5 and has gone through bullying myself, I would NEVER do something like that. I made this because I truly believed Barron was on the spectrum, and I wanted people to stop bullying him over his "weird" behavior and explain to them that it might actually be due to a condition.
If this rumor turns out to be true, and Ms. Trump really wants this video deleted, I will. I have a great respect for her and her family. I never meant to hurt anyone.
Soon after this posting, Hunter was contacted by Trump’s lawyer. In response, Hunter wrote, “This video will be deleted in 24 hours and I will publish a full retraction and apology to Melania and Barron Trump.”
