Melania Trump didn't like it when Rosie O'Donnell tweeted a video on YouTube that suggests Barron Trump could be autistic. A law firm representing the first lady now threatens a lawsuit to the Youtuber who uploaded the video. As of writing, the uploader and O'Donnell have already issued an apology and the video has been deleted.
Earlier reports state that a video of Barron Trump has been uploaded to YouTube by user James Hunter. The video was hashtagged with "#StopTheBullying" but the video itself relates Barron's childish actions to Autism without proof. Rosie O'Donnell, later on, tweeted the video saying Barron Trump Autistic? If so - what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic,"
Then Trump's lawyer strongly denies all allegation regarding Barron Trump and says "The online bullying of children, including Barron Trump, should end now." The lawyer also explained that although the video includes "#StopTheBullying" hashtag, the video itself is making speculations and false statement about a boy for the possible purpose of harassing the kid and his parents, which is the first lady and the POTUS.
However, reports suggest that Melania Trump is not threatening to sue O'Donnell but admits she did make the situation worse. Trump wants the video deleted and the uploader to issue a public apology. And it looks like the uploader has heard them as Jason Hunter shared he will delete the video in 24 hours and will post an apology to the first lady and her son.
Hunter reveals he too suffers from autism so he never meant any harm towards Barron when he uploaded the video. Later on, Rosie O'Donnell also clarified her side on her website saying she has no ill feelings against children with autism because her daughter too was diagnosed with autism. She only shared the video hoping that, if it was true, it would truly "help so much with the autism epidemic."
