Baldwin's attorney, Luke Nikas, says the actor has not paid any of the $25 million the family of Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum sought for chastising them on social media. Baldwin had sent the family $5,000 in 2021 but the next year called McCollum's sister an “insurrectionist" for attending former President Donald Trump's rally leading up to the 2021 U.S. Capitol insurrection.
