YouTube user James Hunter, who created the viral video speculating that Barron Trump might be autistic, has responded to Melania Trump threatening to sue him. In a statement released exclusively to Gossip Cop, Hunter assures us he “never meant to hurt” the Trump family and “just wanted to bring light to the autism epidemic.”

As Gossip Cop reported, Melania threatened a lawsuit against Hunter for making the autism video alleging her 10-year-old son might have the condition, and demanded it be taken down. Charles Harder, an attorney for Donald Trump and the future First Lady, stated in his legal letter that Barron isn’t autistic and the claim otherwise is completely false. Gossip Cop reached out to Hunter about the matter, and he tells us, “I’m honestly kinda scared right now. The only reason I made the video is because I saw how much social media was bullying Barron Trump, and I wanted it to stop. I’d be really sad if I’ve made the situation worse, but I never could’ve imagined that the video would get so much press.”

The originator of the video continued, “I was just sending it privately to people who were bullying him to explain to them that Barron might be autistic, and that’s it isn’t okay to bully him for it, because I know what it’s like to be bullied for being autistic. But then Rosie O’Donnell shared it and it blew up.” He went on to reveal, “I myself am on the spectrum, and I honestly just wanted to bring light to the autism epidemic. I have a lot of respect for Melania Trump. I believe she’s a very smart and I’ll think she’ll be a great First Lady.”

Hunter concluded, “I never ever meant to hurt her family or her son. If this is actually true, and if I actually see a real statement of her asking me to remove it, I will. I NEVER meant to hurt their family. I just with them the best.”
