An anti-bullying viral video alleging that Barron Trump is autistic has sparked much controversy and resulted in a lawsuit threat from future first lady Melania Trump.
"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. 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," James Hunter commented on YouTube.
"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," Hunter posted.
