Lawyer Robert Barnes who volunteered to represent the Catholic High School students questioned why Netflix should feature Rapaport on their Atypical show. Barnes threatened a number of celebrities and media figures with libel lawsuits following their actions taken against the students.
Should @netflix really feature @MichaelRapaport as the star of a Netflix produced series called Atypical that’s about child mental health and bullying when he is here engaging in the bullying of #CovingtonBoys with homophobic imagery and spreading smears & libels about them? https://t.co/CVB2ZI9Rug

Rapaport was not the only celebrity to pile on against the Covington Catholic High School students. The students have been called almost every name in the book by the media elite and influential Hollywood figures.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast producer Jack Morrissey denounced the students by posting a picture from FX’s Fargo that shows a person being fed through a wood chipper. He would later issue an apology for his actions.
Former Charmed actress Alyssa Milano doubled down on her comments comparing the students to members of the Ku Klux Klan. In fact, she compared anyone who wears a red MAGA cap, like the students wore to members of the Klan.
Kingpin actor Vincent D’Onofrio also issued a statement declaring that wearing the red MAGA hat is a sign you cannot be trusted.
Even funny man Jim Carrey attacked the students via one of his paintings. He referred to the students as “Baby Snakes.”

What do you make of Rapaport’s speech? Do you think Netflix should still employ Rapaport on Atypical following this profanity laden rant?
