Barron Trump Autism Video: YouTube User Releases Statement After Melania Trump Lawsuit Threat
YouTube user James Hunter created the now viral video of Barron Trump that suggests he could have autism, and is now responding to the possibility of a lawsuit from Melania Trump over the video’s implications.
“I’m honestly kinda scared right now. 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,” James told Gossip Cop in a statement. “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. 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.”
