The widow and sisters of a US marine killed in Afghanistan during the military’s chaotic departure from the country in 2021 are again suing actor Alec Baldwin for at least $25 million, claiming he exposed them to online vitriol after the actor accused one of the women of being a Jan. 6 insurrectionist.
The federal suit was filed in the Southern District of New York on Friday by the family of Marine Lance Corporal Rylee J. McCollum, who was one of 13 marines killed by a suicide bomber outside of the Hamid Karzai International Airport on Aug. 26, 2021. He was 20 years old.
After McCollum’s death, Baldwin found one of the Marine’s sisters, Roice, on Instagram and sent her a check for $5,000 for his widow, Jiennah, and her newborn baby. Baldwin said the check was a “tribute to a fallen soldier,’ according to the lawsuit.
Months later in January 2022, the “30 Rock” star got in a public spat with Roice after she posted a photo of herself attending a protest near the Washington Monument on Jan. 6, 2021 ahead of the one-year anniversary of the Capitol Hill riot.
In response, Baldwin accused her of participating in the riots and called her an “insurrectionist.”
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy….
The guy has a habit of not checking something to see if itz loaded before shooting it off… this time itz his big mouth!
Frivolous lawsuit will go nowhere for a second time.
“Ass-lick”, you accidentally spelled his name wrong in the header.
Bad things come to bad people.
He should pull a trigger just one more time.
