It’s no secret that Rosie O’Donnell is not a fan of President-elect Donald Trump.
But some would say she sunk to a new low when she shared a hateful YouTube video aimed at Trump’s 10-yr-old son, Barron.
The video, made by James Hunter, suggested Barron could have Autism based off his mannerisms during the wee hours on election night.
Needless to say, the backlash against O’Donnell was swift and fierce especially given the fact that the shared video contained profanity-laced statements, aimed at a sleepy 10-year-old.
“This kid’s having a f**king seizure,” the voiceover said. “What the f**k’s wrong with you?”
Melania Trump fired back too, and with the help of her attorney sent a letter demanding that James Hunter take down the video or face a lawsuit.
Hunter removed the video along with a public apology that was posted on Youtube. “My video was originally intended as an anti-bullying video” because “I myself suffer from autism and I wanted to educate people,” Hunter claimed.

Anti-bullying video? Yeah, right.
Rosie O’Donnell, who was accused of bullying by Melania was also mentioned in the attorney’s letter, and took to Twitter on Thursday to issue her own apology statement to Melania Trump. “I apologize to Melania Trump I was insensitive in my retweet” she said. “I’m sorry for the pain I caused.”
But one does have to wonder if this is a heartfelt apology, or if Rosie O. is just trying to avoid a lawsuit herself. Something about the robotic cadence, and not bothering to take the time to hit the “cap” button on the keyboard might be a clue of her sincerity.
Soon after O’Donnell tweeted the “apology” her Twitter account went private, the Daily Mail reported.
