CNN Blackmails Fifteen Year Old For Supporting Trump

Another day, another controversy for CNN as it continues arguably its toughest public relations stretch in its 37-year history.

Today’s Exhibit A is an implied threat by the network to reveal the identity of a guy who created a comical video showing the president “wrestling” a CNN logo using old footage of Trump making a cameo at a WWE event in 2007.

“He [the video creator] is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again,” the story, titled “How CNN found the Reddit user behind the Trump wrestling GIF,” reads.

“CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change,” it adds.
