An alleged statement attributed to actor Morgan Freeman in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting that left 20 children and 6 adults dead has been deemed a hoax. Elite Daily first posted this statement and noticed many twitter feeds had the statement going viral on Sunday
The comments — which went viral this weekend on sites such as Facebook and Twitter — condemned the “sensationalist media” for coverage of mass killings, blaming news outlets for making “disturbed people” want to kill themselves in a “memorable way.”
Freeman’s publicist Stan Rosenfield says the remarks are not from the actor and he doesn’t know where they originated, he told TheWrap.
The statement specifically calls out CNN and Fox News for reporting details of the shooting.
