“Trump’s Advisor Threatens Legal Action Against Unauthorized Use of Ex-President’s Mugshot for Monetary Gain”
– Donald Trump’s advisor, Chris LaCivita, warns against using Trump’s mugshot for fundraising purposes without prior permission.
– Netizens criticize LaCivita’s threats, arguing that mugshots are in the public domain and can be freely used.
LaCivita took to social media platform “X” to issue a warning, stating that anyone attempting to raise money off Trump’s mugshot without permission will face legal consequences. However, internet users quickly responded, asserting that mugshots are public domain and can be used without restrictions. The criticism towards LaCivita’s statement was further amplified as netizens trolled him for his threats.
In recent news, Donald Trump was arrested in Atlanta over allegations of attempting to reverse the 2020 election results in Georgia. During his time in the Fulton County prison, a mugshot of Trump was taken and later shared on social media. Trump himself posted the mugshot with the caption “ELECTION INTERFERENCE! NEVER SURRENDER!”.
Trump currently faces 13 felony counts in the Georgia case and remains a prominent figure in the 2024 Republican presidential nomination race. Despite LaCivita’s warning, it is clear that there is ongoing debate regarding the ownership and usage rights of Trump’s mugshot.
