A video that steered Barron Trump, Donald Trump’s youngest son, may have autism was faraway from YouTube Tuesday after Melania Trump’s lawyer threatened to sue the person that uploaded the video.
“The video relating to Barron Trump has been eliminated, and the one that posted it has retracted it and apologized for it on the similar YouTube web page,” the lawyer, Charles J. Harder, stated.
The seven-minute video, which was promoted on social media by Rosie O’Donnell, confirmed clips of Barron, 10, at occasions just like the Republican National Convention and through Donald Trump’s presidential acceptance speech on Nov. eight.
The video’s creater, James Hunter, stated since being pludged into the highlight, Barron has exhibited conduct just like those that have autism. Hunter’s video confirmed Barron “moving erratically” whereas clapping, “making strange movements” whereas sitting, strolling “wobbly” and expressing a “lack of social skills and understanding.” Charts proven within the video stated that at 60, the age Donald Trump had Barren, “the likelihood of autism (increasely) drastically.”
“A video was posted at YouTube recently speculating that Barron might be autistic. He is not,” Harder stated. “The video includes the hashtag #StopTheBullying, but yet the video itself is bullying by making false statements and speculation about a 10-year-old boy for the purpose of harassing him and his parents.”
In an apology, Hunter, who stated he has autism, stated he did not imply any hurt when he created the video.
“I never ever meant this as a bullying video,” Hunter wrote. “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 … I have a great respect for (Melania) and her family. I never meant to hurt anyone.”
