Actor Michael Rapaport tore Donald Trump Jr. to shreds after the former President's eldest son hawked T-shirts mocking the accidental death of an award winning cinematographer on the set of the film Rust.

Last Thursday while filming his latest movie, Baldwin accidentally discharged a prop firearm and killed 42-year-old cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza.

Don Jr., who is a gun-rights activist, saw humor in the tragedy and decided to capitalize on it by selling $27.99 T-shirts on his official website.

The words written on the T-shirts read:

"Guns don't kill people, Alec Baldwin kills people."


Furious over Don Jr.'s exploitation of the fatal incident and callous disregard for Halyna Hutchins and her family, Rapaport—who can be seen on Netflix's Atypical—slammed the trustee of the Trump Organization in a searing Twitter post.

When it comes to the Trump family, Rapaport did not mince words.

"Piss Stain @DonaldJTrumpJr is currently mocking the death of an innocent woman on the set of Alec Baldwin film," tweeted Rapaport.

"These are the lowest nastiest Pigs, the celebrations will ensue & your family will be alive to see it and I can't wait."

Rapaport said Don Jr. was on Instagram and "making fun of the tragic accidental death of an innocent woman on the set of an Alec Baldwin film because that's what these sh*tbags do."

He added Don Jr's tasteless merchandise campaign occurred during the same week former President Donald Trump hit another low when commenting on the death of former Secretary of State Colin Powell by saying, "But anyway, may he rest in peace!"

"These are mean, miserable, nasty f'cking scumbags," continued Rapaport.

"The worst thing about their deaths when they pass is that people will be dancing, literally dancing, celebrating in the street, making out, having sex, parading, and you f'cks won't be there to see it."
"But fortunately, your family will be there to witness the celebrations when you f'cks die."

Twitter users backed Rapaport's sentiment.









On the New Mexico movie set for Rust, Baldwin reportedly was informed the prop gun handed to him by an assistant director was a "cold gun" and did not contain ammunition before the actor unexpectedly fired a live round while shooting a scene calling for him to back out of a church and pull the gun from the holster.

Prop gun refers to any firearm used as a movie prop, whether fake or a functional firearm.

Baldwin said on Friday he is cooperating with authorities and expressed "There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins."

The 30 Rock actor had been the target of animosity from the Trump family, especially after his critically acclaimed satirical portrayal of the 45th President on Saturday Night Live.

Other Republicans, like Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance, went after Baldwin following the tragedy and tweeted at Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and implored him to "let Trump back on. We need Alec Baldwin tweets."

Conservative pundit Candace Owens bizarrely called the incident "poetic justice" following Baldwin's longtime criticism of Donald Trump.

"Alec Baldwin spent 4 years dedicated to painting Donald Trump and his supporters as evil murderers," wrote Owens in deleted social media posts.

'What has happened to Alec would be an example of poetic justice if it weren't for the actual innocent people that were murdered by him."

After the backlash for his latest merchandise, Don Jr. wrote on his Instagram story:

"Screw all the sanctimony I'm seeing out there."
"If the shoe was on the other foot Alex Baldwin would literally be the first person pissing on everybody's grave trying to make a point. F'k him!"
