It's good to see Black Lives Matter supporting paleontology.

"commissioned a custom iron frame"

That looks like steel, not iron, and steel would be lighter and stronger.

This.  We have T. rex skin impressions, none of which do far show signs of feathers.  They show scales.

Having said that, some smaller tyrannosaurs like Dilong paradoxes were covered in feathers (but not flight feathers).

Supposedly baby t-rex was covered in down feathers.

You will note that it's based on zero evidence, though, just speculation.  They don't mention any actual specimens of feathered hatchlings, because there are no specimens of T. rex hatchlings or eggs, hatched or not.  I think the youngest specimen we have is "Baby Bob", which is believed to be about 4 years old.

Theorizing that T. rex hatchlings had feathers isn't science.  It's bullshiatting until we get some actual evidence.
