The parents of two toddlers whose children were thrust into the most partisan presidential election of modern history are fighting back through the New York court system. Michael Cisneros and Alex Hanson, parents of “M.H.”, and Erica McKenna and Daniel McKenna, parents of “F.M.” filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump, his campaign, and Logan Cook—conservative internet meme creator—in response to the digital manipulation and exploitation of a video showing the two young toddlers, one Caucasian and one African American, embracing in a heartwarming display of human affection.
Neumann Law Group is part of the legal team, including Maggiano, DiGirolama & Lizzi, P.C.; Johnson Law, PLLC; and CHF Legal, representing the two couples who are seeking monetary damages and an injunction preventing any further use of their toddlers’ likeness. Logan Cook manipulated the video to create the “racists baby” meme, which was subsequently exploited by Donald Trump and his campaign for commercial purposes.
