Trump sued by parents of kids in doctored ‘racist baby’ Twitter video

  • The parents of two toddlers who were featured in a manipulated “racist baby” video are suing Donald Trump, the Trump campaign, and Logan Cook, a conservative meme creator who goes by Carpe Donktum.
  • The video, created by Cook, was manipulated to show a Black child running away from a white child with the caption “Terrified Todler [sic] Runs From Racist Baby” and “Racist Baby Probably A Trump Voter.”
  • At the time, Twitter labeled the video as “manipulated media,” removing it in response to a copyright claim from the children’s parents.
