A Muslim victim of the Boston Marathon bombing has sued Glenn Beck for defamation and slander after the talk show host accused him of funding the attacks.
Race spectator Abdulrahman Alharbi filed a federal lawsuit against Beck and his companies, The Blaze Inc. and Mercury Radio Arts, and his radio syndicator, Premier Radio Networks.
Authorities quickly determined that Alharbi, a Saudi national of Middle Eastern descent, had no involvement in the attacks.
But Beck “repeatedly and falsely” identified Alharbi as an active participant in the bombings, the suit claims.
The lawsuit also claims Beck questioned the motives of federal authorities who declined to arrest or detain the college student, reported Courthouse News.
