MSNBC host Joy Reid is in some serious hot water as a Trump supporter is now suing her for defamation of character for alleging she shouted racial slurs at a minor.
This comes as no surprise given the fact that Reid is a puppet for the left-wing propaganda machine known as the mainstream media. Hopefully the lesson she’ll learn from this is that words have power and come with consequences.
MSNBC host Joy Reid is being sued for defamation by a California woman who accused the “AM Joy” star of falsely accusing her on social media of screaming racial slurs at a minor because she is a Trump supporter.Advertisement - story continues below
Roslyn La Liberte – who was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” cap during the incident in question – filed the lawsuit in Eastern District Court of New York on Tuesday. She claims that Reid “used her substantial social media presence, fame, and reputation as a hard-hitting journalist” to tell her followers that La Liberte “screamed abhorrent racial slurs” at a 14-year-old boy.
A photo from a Simi Valley, Calif. city council meeting went viral last June when it appeared that La Liberte was involved in a heated conversation with a young boy. According to the plaintiff, Reid sent a series of tweets claiming the viral photo showed the Trump supporter screaming in the face of the young man and retweeting to her followers that La Liberte “needs to be put on blast.”Trending:
The suit claims Reid falsely tweeted that La Liberte showed up “to a rally” and “screamed” that Luevanos is “going to be the first deported,” calling the boy a “dirty Mexican” in the process.
The suit indicates that Reid was not present at the event, which was a City Council meeting, not a political “rally,” and that she ‘made up out of whole cloth the accusation that La Liberte screamed racial slurs.”Advertisement - story continues below
The young man in the photo, 14-year-old Joseph Luevanos, told a local Fox affiliate that the conversation was civil and that La Liberte doesn’t deserve to be harassed as a result of the viral photo. The conversation was even captured on video and fails to coincide with Reid’s claim that La Liberte mistreated Luevanos.
Reid and other left-wing ilk in the media need to understand that freedom of speech doesn’t mean their words don’t have consequences. The Good Book says that bearing false witness is a crime against your neighbor because it destroys their reputation. Which is exactly what happened in this situation.
As such, Reid deserves to pay for her falsehoods. Let’s hope the judge rules in La Liberte’s favor.
