A Trump supporters lawsuit for libel against MSNBC’s new superstar Joy Reid has been revived by an appellate court.
According to The Daily Caller:
Reid was sued by Roslyn La Liberte, a Trump supporter, in 2018 after she said the MSNBC host falsely accused her on social media of screaming racist slurs at a 14-year-old boy. Reid sent multiple tweets regarding a viral photo appearing to show La Liberte yelling at the young boy.
The MSNBC host tweeted that the Trump supporter “needs to be put on blast” and claimed that La Liberte came to “a rally” and “screamed” that the boy is “going to be the first deported.” Reid also claimed that La Liberte referred to the child as a “dirty Mexican,” according to a past Fox News report.
“Make the picture black and white and it could be the 1950s and the desegregation of a school. Hate is real, y’all. It hasn’t even really gone away,” Reid added on both Instagram and Facebook according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Joseph Luevanos, the 14-year-old, said that the conversation was civil, Fox LA reported in 2018. Despite this, a district court judge originally ruled in Reid’s favor last September, saying that La Liberte could not prove that Reid proceeded with malice with her apparently false claims.
It appears I got this wrong. My apologies to Mrs. La Liberte and Joseph. https://t.co/J8vZsCwAvs
