DONALD Trump Jr. is selling tasteless shirts mocking a fatal shooting after actor Alec Baldwin fired a faulty prop gun and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
"Guns don't kill people, Alec Baldwin kills people," reads the joke Trump Jr. is selling on his website for $27.99, just days after the actor fatally shot Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza in the shoulder.
The insensitive shirts come in the latest string of Trump-affiliated spars at the actor, who was a very vocal opponent of the former president and an active anti-gun advocate.
The hashtag "#AlecBaldwinForPrison" was trending on Twitter just as Candace Owens called Baldwin's incident "poetic justice" after four years of "Baldwin painting Donald Trump and his supporters as evil murderers."
Baldwin earned an Emmy for playing Trump Jr.'s dad on Saturday Night Live throughout Trump's term, and was a member of the No Rifle Association (NoRA) as well as an outspoken critic of former NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch.
However, despite the critiques of Baldwin from the right, Trump Jr. is already getting hammered for profiting on the death of Hutchins.
"What a hateful thing to sell. Imagine if Halyna Hutchen’s family, especially her young son, saw someone walking around wearing this horrible piece of trash…sold by a piece of trash," wrote a person reviewing the shirt on Trump Jr.'s site.
Another reviewer wrote "your family’s disgusting, petty, behavior never ceases to amaze me. You are truly a stain on this country."
"What a loser. SAD!" said another.
Trump Jr. has since dismissed the criticism.

"Screw all the sanctimony I’m seeing out there," he wrote.
"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— him!"
In a previous Instagram post, Trump Jr. posted an edited photo of Homer Simpson with a sign reading "Let's all watch Alec Baldwin blame the gun."
"It’s only a matter of time," Jr captioned the photo.
Baldwin accidentally fired a prop gun on Thursday while on the set of his new movie, Rust.
In a statement first given to The Sun, Santa Fe County Sheriff Juan Rios revealed: “The sheriff’s office confirms that two individuals were shot on the set of Rust.
"Halyna Hutchins, 42, director of photography and Joel Souza, 48, director, were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin, 68, producer and actor."
The officer also confirmed that no charges have been filed yet relating to the incident however, the investigation remains ongoing as witness' are interviewed.
