Baldwin has been a sworn enemy of the Trump family since his portrayal of the former president on SNL.
What better way to kick a known enemy while he’s down than to throw a t-shirt taunting him?
That’s exactly what Donald Trump Jr. did, attacking longtime enemy Alec Baldwin, selling a T-shirt mocking the tragic shooting on the set of the movie “Rust” in which cinematographer Halyna Hutchins lost her life. .
According to the New York Daily News , for $ 27.99 you can buy a shirt that says “Guns don’t kill people, Alec Baldwin kills people” referencing Baldwin’s fatal shot at Hutchins after he fired a propeller gun.
The Rust director was also injured in the shooting.
Baldwin has been a sworn enemy of the Trump family since the actor poked fun at Donald J. Trump by playing the former president on Saturday Night Live. The actor has also been critical of Trump and the Republican Party.
It’s no secret that Trump Jr. is pro-firearms and sells items adorned with the slogan “OMG my family my guns and my freedom” and “Trigger Warning.”
The anti-Baldwin jersey was met with criticism, with some online believing it to be in poor taste. Trump Jr. bowed down over his hatred of Baldwin by taking to Instagram to face the critics.
“To hell with all the self-righteousness I’m seeing out there,” he said. “If the shoe was on the other foot, Alex (sic) Baldwin would literally be the first person to pee on everyone’s grave trying to make a point. Fuck it! “
Some right-wing politicians joined Trump Jr.’s taunting of Baldwin, including Republican Senate candidate JD Vance, who took to Twitter to suggest that former President Trump be allowed to return to the social media platform to address the actor.
Dear @jack, let Trump come back. We need Alec Baldwin’s tweets, ”Vance tweeted.
Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan responded to Vance by tweeting: “Someone died, you idiot.”
