Survivors of the Ariana Grande Concert Bombing File a Harassment Lawsuit Against a Conspiracy Theorist

Reports say that the people who were hurt in the terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande show in Britain are suing a conspiracy theorist who said they had lied about their injuries.

In 2017, 22 people died, and more than 1,000 were hurt when a suicide bomber set off a bomb at the Manchester Arena. Martin and Eve Hibbert, two of Richard D. Hall’s victims, are now taking him to court for slander and harassment. The U.K. media has looked into Hall before and found that he followed victims to their homes and spread conspiracy theories that other terror attacks were faked. According to the BBC, this is the first time a case like this has been brought against a conspiracy theorist in Britain.

Martin Hibbert was paralyzed from the waist down after the 2017 arena bombing. He hopes that the case will stop people from harassing victims in the U.K. like Alex Jones does. He told the BBC, “It does sometimes feel like a bit of a weight, so it would be nice just to be able to put it to bed and move on with our lives.”
