Donald Trump Jr. is profiting from T-shirts referring to the fatal shooting on the set of low-budget film, Rust.
According to an affidavit released Sunday night, Baldwin, 66, was practicing firing into a camera when camerawoman Halyna Hutchins, 42, was shot in the chest on Thursday. She died at a local hospital.
Crew members say the camera was protected by a bulletproof shield — but crew members weren’t protected.
Trump Jr., the son of the former President Donald Trump, who is also a frequent critic of Baldwin, took to his Instagram Stories to promote a T-shirt that says: “Guns don’t kill people, Alec Baldwin kills people.”
Trump Jr. also photoshopped an image of Baldwin wearing the T-shirt which sells for $27.99 on his personal website.
Baldwin was a vocal critic of President Trump and he is notoriously anti-gun.
Vanity Fair magazine referred to Trump Jr. as “sentient pond scum” for profiting off of a “horrifying tragedy”.
The magazine went on to say Trump Jr. has been “gunning to succeed his father as the biggest asshole on Twitter”.
Twitter users didn’t hold back either.
One Twitter user wrote:
“I hope the family of Halyna Hutchins sues Donald trump Jr for every penny he’s worth because of the disgusting tee shirts he’s selling to profit off of her death.
Another person tweeted:
“Don Jr. is all the proof you need that the douche doesn’t fall far from the bag.”
While a third person wrote:
“An innocent person was killed, but anything for a buck.
Donald Trump Jr. sells T-shirts mocking Alec Baldwin’s fatal shooting.”
Someone died in this accident. She was a mother, wife, and daughter. I know how her family feels. The only thing I want to say to that scum of the earth @DonaldJTrumpJr is you clearly are your fathers son. Never has there been a more miserable family.https://t.co/4zJFL5yoey

The way Baldwin mocked the president he got what he deserved. Don Jr should not get involved. Things have a way of working out.
