The video that purports that Barron Trump is possibly autistic has been removed from the internet.
Yesterday, Melania Trump threatened to sue over the video, and now the man who made the video has agreed to remove it.
The video did not assert anything outright about the youngest Trump son, but rather analyzed his public behavior and speculated what it might suggest.
James Hunter, the young man who posted the video and is himself on the autism spectrum, said, “TMZ just contacted me to tell me Melania Trump is threatening a lawsuit over this video, and wants a public apology from me. I’m absolutely terrified right now, and I’m not sure if this is actually true or not.”
Hunter continued, “I truly believed Barron was on the [autism] 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 [about the legal threat] 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.”
In a later post on the video, another comment read, “I’ve 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.”
By Tuesday afternoon the video, along with all comments, had been deleted.
Do you think this is the right decision?
