“NBCUniversal created a false narrative by portraying the ‘confrontation’ as a ‘hate crime’ committed by Nicholas,” the lawsuit said.

He also added that the teen was an “easy target for NBCUniversal to advance its anti-Trump agenda because he was a 16-year-old white Catholic student who had attended the Right to Life March that day and was wearing a MAGA cap on his head.” time of the incident that he had bought earlier that day as a souvenir.

The lawsuit claims that NBC “unleashed its vast corporate wealth, influence and power against Nicholas to falsely attack him even though he was a 16-year-old high school student at the time.”

In a DailyMail.com column last year, Sandmann compared the event and its aftermath to that of Kyle Rittenhouse, who was cleared of all charges after shooting three men, killing two, during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
