In other "WTF People are brain dead.."
At least 26 people are dead
, 20 of them children, after a deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Friday morning. Around the country people sat watching their televisions, anxiously awaiting reports from all major news sources. CBS, Fox News, ABC, CNN, and more delayed their usual programming to cover the Sandy Hook shooting. On ABC, apparently, the special coverage
on Friday angered many who wanted to watchJustin Bieber
Twitter was filled with people commenting about the shooting. Some people expressed anger that the school zone had been “gun-free” while others demanded stricter gun regulation. Some were talking about the tales of heroics as teachers risked their lives to save their students
. Many were talking about the horror they felt hearing that someone had murdered 20 small children. Then there were the Justin Bieber fans.
Justin had pre-taped an appearance on the “Ellen” daytime show
. Amber Beatty tweeted, “Ok this story is sad and all but please put Ellen on”. Jason Coverstone tweeted “I just want to watch Ellen, not this shooting coverage!”.
“Ugh! The stupid shooting is all over the news and cutting into my Ellen and Justin Bieber!!! So mad!!!” tweeted Chloe G, as if it never occurred to her that the parents of those children who were murdered would much rather have their children back and let her watch “Ellen”.
The list of tweets from Justin Bieber fans could continue, but it is obvious that the pop superstar did not ask for his fans to be so insensitive. He tweeted,
“heard about what happened in CT, my prayers go out to all those suffering in this tragedy. it'ss just wrong. Everyone please pray for them.” Hopefully, Justin Bieber’s fans will realize the lives lost in Connecticut on Friday were more important than a pre-taped daytime talk show.
