The Wrap reports:
The lawsuit, filed in New York Supreme Court, said that Trump, his campaign and Logan Cook, a pro-Trump meme maker known as Carpe Donktum online who created the doctored video, behaved in a manner that was “extreme, shocking and outrageous” and “beyond the bounds of decency.”
The suit also said that Trump, in sharing the manipulated video, was pushing “his brand of sensationalism in complete disregard for the truth.”
The video in question, which was based on original footage that aired on CNN of a Black and white toddler hugging each other, was manipulated to appear as if the Black child was being chased by the white child while a fake chyron said, “Terrified Todler [sic] Runs from Racist Baby” and “Racist Baby Probably a Trump Voter.”
Carpe Donktum has been permanently banned by Twitter for this and other copyright violations.
