Houston attorney Mark Bankston said he’s gotten death threats because of his representation of families who are suing radio host Alex Jones and company Infowars.

On one hand, Bankston says that Jones and his attorney called him names and made fun of him on multiple episodes of Infowars. But on the other side, Robert Barnes, Infowars’ outside general counsel who appeared on the show, said he didn’t do anything improper and was just defending his client in the court of public opinion.
