Alex Jones is “done saying I’m sorry” for spreading the hoax that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting never happened, he said during an angry outburst on the stand. It was the first time Jones appeared in person at his latest defamation trial on Thursday.
The Infowars host and far-right conspiracy theorist gave testimony in a Connecticut defamation trial that is being held about 32 kilometres away from Newtown, the site of the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre that claimed the lives of 20 children and six educators.
After being sued for defamation, Jones finally acknowledged in 2019 that the Sandy Hook shooting was real and that the distraught parents of children who died that day were not crisis actors. But on Thursday, he angrily refused to keep apologizing for the lies he spread.
