Actor Alec Baldwin is threatened with new trouble. The family of a killed US Marine has filed a lawsuit against the 64-year-old, demanding $25 million in damages. One of the reasons for this is said to be a photo that Baldwin shared on social media.
It has only just become known that Alec Baldwin is seeing some light in the job sky again with a new engagement on Broadway, when the next bad news arrives. The family of a killed US Marine is demanding $25 million in damages from the actor, the New York Post reports.
Alec Baldwin is a declared opponent of Trump and therefore felt compelled to comment on the photo. He also wrote privately to Roice McCollum, the New York Post reports: "When I sent you the money for your brother, out of genuine respect for his service to this country, I did not know that you were associated with the riots of WW6 . January belong." Baldwin then posted the photo on his own account and is said to have mentioned Roice McCollum's involvement in the storming of the Capitol in the text.
However, she claims not to have been there that day. And so she is now demanding compensation for this allegation, because she and other family members then received masses of "hostile, aggressive and hateful messages" and were insulted as Nazis and racists. "Alec Baldwin's behavior was careless and reckless. He should have known that if he were to bring the allegations he made against the plaintiffs to his millions of followers, he would harm the plaintiffs," the New York Post quoted as saying " from the complaint.
The lawsuit, which the family is now seeking in New York, is said to involve invasion of privacy, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress. It's the McCollums' second attempt. A judge in Wyoming dismissed the first lawsuit against Baldwin because she did not feel responsible because the actor lives in New York.
