          CNN has reached out to Baldwin’s attorney for comment.
          대략 20 minutes after Baldwin posted Roice’sInstagram feed,” 여자 “began to get hostile, aggressive, hateful messages from Baldwin’s followers,” the suit alleges.
          Baldwin’s Instagram post that he later deleted said, “Lots of Trumpsters chiming in here with the current cry that the attack on the Capitol was a protest, (a more peaceful form of which got a lot of other protestors imprisoned) and an exercise in democracy. That’s bullsh*t.
          His post continued and said, “I did some research. I found, IG에, that this woman [Roice McCollum] is the brother (sic) of one of the men who was killed,” in Kabul Afghanistan.
          I offered to send her sister-in-law [Jiennah McCollum] 약간 $ as a tribute to her late brother, his widow and their child. Which I did. As a tribute to a fallen soldier. Then I find this. Truth is stranger than fiction,” his post added.

In addition to negligence and defamation, they are also suing Baldwin for invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
          “[아르 자형]egardless of a person’s politics, what Baldwin did here should never be allowed to stand. He is one of the most recognizable people in the country and has a social media following five times the population of the State of Wyoming. He abused that platform willingly and put the McCollum’s through hell at a time when they had just begun to cope with Rylee’s death,” Postiglione said in a news release.
