Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of former President Donald Trump and wife Ivana Trump, has started selling tee shirts mocking Alec Baldwin after the heartbreaking shooting on the set of his Western film, “Rust.”
Last week, cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, was killed when Baldwin discharged a weapon that contained live rounds. Director Joel Souza, 48, was also injured in the accident, although he has since been released from the hospital.
Although investigators are still trying to get to the bottom of why the gun contained a live round, Donald Trump Jr. has started ridiculing him in the face of this unspeakable tragedy.

Donald Trump Jr. took to Instagram early Monday morning to share a picture of former President Trump mimicking shooting a gun. The photo is titled, “Donald Trump, rehearsing for SNL skit where he plays Alec Baldwin.”

Baldwin famously portrayed the former President in several “Saturday Night Live” sketches. When he stopped the parody skit in 2020, Baldwin tweeted, “I don’t believe I’ve ever been this overjoyed to lose a job before! … It will be comforting when we have a President who doesn’t Tweet twice as much as I do … They’re gonna need an enormous shipment of tissues sent to Mar-a-Lago … On to my next wish. That everyone who voted in this election maintains that commitment and votes in the 2022 midterm elections. Let’s keep this going!!!”
It seems that Donald Trump Jr. is still taking offense to the “30 Rock” actor. In the caption of the Instagram post, he wrote, “For those who are out there doing the fake sanctimony about leaving Alec Baldwin alone let’s all remember that Alec Baldwin would be the first person pissing on everyone’s grave if the shoes were on the other foot. Screw him!”
New Hateful Apparel
Adding fuel to the fire, Donald Trump Jr. started selling new T-shirts on his official site mocking the tragedy. The shirts, which sell for $27.99, feature the slogan: “Guns don’t kill people Alec Baldwin kills people.”
The slogan is available to purchase as a T-shirt, a long-sleeve shirt, and a hoodie. All three options are available in a variety of colors.
To make matters even worse, Donald Trump Jr. also photoshopped a picture of the actor wearing one of the tee shirts and shared it to his Instagram Story.
Comments on the post were divided. Although some supported Donald Trump Jr., others felt that the shirt was in poor taste.
“As the person holding the gun it is his [Baldwin’s] responsibility to ensure its safety,” one person wrote.
“This ain’t it man…” another wrote. “Someone lost their life…”
Conservative writer and talk show host Candace Owens took a shot at Baldwin earlier today, calling the accidental shooting “poetic justice” for his previous criticism of the former President.
According to an official at the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department, “Mr. Baldwin was questioned by investigators and released. No arrests or charges have been filed.”
