Royce McCollum – according to the AP – protested peacefully and legally. After being questioned by the FBI, he was not among those who attacked Capitol, saying “there is no stopping, arresting or prosecuting any crime,” the lawsuit was filed Monday in Cheyenne District Court in Wyoming, USA.
Last year, Baldwin sent a $ 5,000 check to McCallum. To help the widow of his brother Riley McCullum, one of 13 U.S. soldiers killed in a suicide bombing at Kabul airport on August 26.
In early January, McCallum released a photo of last year’s protests. On January 3, the actor sent a message to her asking if she was the same woman who had received his donation. McCullum confirmed the protest. “The protest is completely legal,” he wrote.
Baldwin reposted the photo on his social media site. Good luck, he wrote. Photo not available today.
The woman in the case insisted that the actor “clearly ignored” the fact that his participation in the protests was peaceful, which was determined by the FBI. Federal court records reviewed by the Associated Press found no criminal charges against him.
After the photo appeared on Baldwin’s account, Roice Mccollum received “hundreds of hateful messages” including “rape and death” and her brother “he deserved it”. In the post, Baldwin called the news “disgusting.”
According to the lawsuit, Baldwin did nothing to correct the situation and shared the photo with his fans, saying “he hit a match and blew it into the fire.” Not only Royce McCallum, but his sister Cheyenne and his brother’s widow, Gianna, also received death threats.
In the case, Baldwin was charged with, among other things, intentional invasion of privacy and libel. The woman is demanding $ 25 million. Compensation.
