The Independent reports that Jones is now being sued in a case with massive implications for free speech.
A lawsuit is being filed by the parents of victims of the Sandy Hook massacre that left 20 children shot dead. The lawsuit claims that Jones has participated in the "continuation and elaboration of a years-long campaign to falsely attack the honesty of the Sandy Hook parents, casting them as participants in a ghastly conspiracy and cover-up."
Jones is being sued in part for expressing his opinion regarding the Sandy Hook shooting back in 2014 on his radio program:
"Sandy Hook is a synthetic completely fake with actors, in my view, manufactured. I couldn't believe it at first. I knew they had actors there, clearly, but I thought they killed some real kids. And it just shows how bold they are, that they clearly used actors. I mean they even ended up using photos of kids killed in mass shootings here in a fake mass shooting in Turkey — so yeah, or Pakistan. The sky is now the limit."
