CNN’s “KFile” has been taking a beating over the past 24 hours after they hunted down the creator of President Donald Trump’s now-infamous wrestling gif.
Twitter users and other media personalities such as Ben Shapiro have accused CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski and his team of blackmailing Reddit user “HanA**holeSolo,” who allegedly created the gif.
CNN seemingly forced Mr. “Solo” to apologize for allegedly posting anti-Semitic messages. After telling him they would protect his identity, they ended with this controversial statement:
“CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”
Now, “Everybody Loves Raymond” star Patricia Heaton is taking shots at the network, saying that they’ve lost any shred of credibility they had left:

Of course, it’s been confirmed by Andrew Kaczynski himself that “Solo” is not 15 years old:
Need to point out again HanAssholeSolo is a middle aged man. People claiming he's 15 are wrong. Some are intentionally spreading this.

But Heaton’s point still remains. CNN has once again kicked the internet beehive by threatening to expose or “dox” this individual for his anonymous meme posting.
“HanA**holeSolo” has since deleted his Reddit account.
