He co-opted a popular phrase used by the pro-gun lobby – 'Guns don't kill people, people kill people' – for a tacky slogan T-shirt.
Donald Trump Jr sells the T-shirts on his website for $ 27.99, and it is possible to buy them in several different colors. It is a classic short-sleeved T-shirt with white text calling out Alec Baldwin because of the tragedy that happened recently during the filming of "Rust".
Twitter has been buzzing about this tasteless move of Trump Jr which they characterized as "mocking death of Hayna Hutchins".
"I hope the family of Halyna Hutchins sues Donald Trump Jr for every penny he's worth because of the disgusting T-shirts he's selling to profit off of her death," said one Twitter user.
"This seems tacky even for him," wrote another.

Despite facing strong criticism, the eldest son of the former American president did not further comment on the sale of T-shirts. Following the public scrutiny, the T-shirt has now been removed from the website
Recall, on October 22 on the set of the film "Rust", Baldwin accidentally killed the director of photography Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza. Further investigation established that there were real bullets in the prop gun instead of blanks and that assistant director Dave Halls, who did not follow the safety protocol, was responsible for the accident.
