MSNBC’s Joy Reid Sued by Trump Supporter for Defamation

September 27, 2018

MSNBC host Joy Reid is being sued for defamation by a California woman who accused the AM Joy star of falsely accusing her on social media of screaming racial slurs at a minor because she is a Trump supporter.

Roslyn La Liberte – who was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” cap during the incident – claims Reid “used her substantial social media presence, fame, and reputation as a hard-hitting journalist” to tell her followers that La Liberte “screamed abhorrent racial slurs” at a 14-year-old boy.

“Reid set out to destroy La Liberte because she disagrees with La Liberte’s MAGA hat and the beliefs Reid ascribes to those wearing that hat conflict with her ideology,” the lawsuit states.
