Morgan Freeman’s Statement was a Hoax?

Numerous folks—incorporating famous people—have stood up on the horrific awfulness that struck Newtown, Conn., on Friday, when a 20-year-old shooter started shooting and killed no less than 26 folks, incorporating 20 youngsters, at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Then again, Morgan Freeman is not one of the previously mentioned individuals. The performer has not discharged a remark on the episode that occurred a couple days prior, regardless of various stories reporting generally. The extensive quote ascribeed to Morgan is in reality a fabrication or a hoax. berita gosip paling baru The remark floating around online that was said to be from Freeman stated the following, "You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why. It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single victim of Columbine? Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody." The falsely-attributed quote continued, "CNN's article says that if the body count 'holds up,' this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations¬, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next. You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem." So is that statement was only some hoax to flame up the situation? We should wait Freeman itself to give his explanation.
