Yair Netanyahu was summoned to the Jerusalem Magistrate Court after posting a message on Twitter calling on his followers to gather outside of the homes of protesters.
Rumors swirled on social media after a tweet posted on Tuesday by Attorney Barak Cohen implied that the Prime Minister's wife had been missing recently for some unknown medical reason.
The younger Netanyahu has faced prior criticism for Tweeting controversial comments and memes.
There have been individuals who have been prosecuted in the past for threatening the prime minister during Mandelblit’s tenure.
In the tweet, the prime minister’s son told a hypothetical story in order to criticize the top-rated newscast on N12 that he often compares to Al Jazeera.
Readers of The Jerusalem Post have their say.
The Prime Minister's son has long been a controversial figure on social media. Last month, he received criticism for saying that Tel Aviv should be "cleared of minorities."
Besides being outrageous, this type of rhetoric is dangerous.
The apology comes after Weiss threatened to sue him for his previous comments.
"The riots prove that there is no chance for coexistence in Tel Aviv-Jaffa, and all the minorities must leave the city," Yair Netanyahu tweeted.
