Alec Baldwin is certainly one of the most well-known and established actors in all of Hollywood. Baldwin is known for his comedy roles but also does serious roles from time to time. He is currently in the news for all the wrong reasons after accidentally shooting a crew member.
As reported earlier, Alec Baldwin was confirmed to be the person who fired the prop gun that killed a female crew member, revealed to be the cinematographer. It took place on the sets of Baldwin’s upcoming western film, Rust.
It was said that two crew members were shot and injured on the Bonanza Creek Ranch set and taken to a hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The woman would lose her life after succumbing to her injury. The woman in question was revealed to be Halyna Hutchins, the movie’s director of photography.
Now it seems Donald Trump Jr. decided to capitalize on the tragic incident in the most distasteful way imaginable. He started selling merchandise that mocks the shooting. He took to his Instagram stories and uploaded a photo of a T-shirt with the words: “Guns don’t kill people, Alec Baldwin kills people”. The Instagram story had a link to Mr Trump’s online website, where the T-shirt is being sold for $27.99.
It is also to be noted due to Donald Trump Jr’s insensitive marketing ploy, he has started trending on Twitter as many people are already outraged over what he did. We certainly hope people like Donald Trump Jr. will stop making light of people’s deaths so much.
