Donald Trump Jr. has started selling shirts inspired by the tragedy after the tragic death of Halyna Hutchins, cinematographer on the Alec Baldwin movie Rust set.
Insider reports that former President Donald Trump's son sells shirts on his website for $27.99 which say, "guns don’t kill people, Alec Baldwin murders people." Baldwin's prop gun reportedly went off while he was unholstering it on set for Rust in New Mexico. This killed Hutchins. Joel Souza, the director, was also hurt. Baldwin received the prop gun before a crew member shouted "cold guns" to indicate that it didn't have any live rounds.
Baldwin spoke out in shock and sadness over the "tragic accident" on set and said he would cooperate fully with an investigation. Baldwin said, "My heart breaks for her husband, their son and all those who loved Halyna." Baldwin was Donald Trump's Saturday Night Live character and has been vocal in his opposition to gun-rights activists.
Trump Jr. also posted a picture of Baldwin to his Instagram account in the aftermath of shooting, with the caption: "That look when anti-gun nut kills as many people with a firearm than your extensive firearm collection has ever." Baldwin was seen wearing the shirt in a modified image that he promoted on Instagram.
J.D., a Republican Senate candidate, was previously criticized. Vance was criticised for tweeting that Donald Trump should lift his ban on Twitter because "we need Alec Baldwin Tweets." CNN's Jake Tapper condemned "disapointing" messages mocking Baldwin in the tragedy, and decried that "there is something about our politics that is driving people away form our shared humanity."
