Morgan Freeman Says He Never Made a Statement about the School Shooting

freeman1Everybody is talking about the recent school shooting that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Ct.  But one person who says he didn’t say a thing is Mr. Morgan Freeman.

Freeman had originally been accused of issuing a statement blaming the media for sensationalizing the shooting.  He says that it never happened.  Freeman says that the statement was simply a hoax.  His publicist, Stan Rosenfield, is working to find the origins of the statement.  When your name is as big as Freeman’s, you have to work hard to protect your reputation.

“It’s because of the way the media reports it,” said the allegedly fake statement. “Turn on the news and see 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 basement 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 statement goes on to criticize CNN and accusing the network of sensationalizing the situation.  We hope this statement wasn’t released by Freeman, but then again, the person who wrote it might be right.

  1. … whoever wrote the statement was definitely on the right track. Glad someone had the guts to say what was needed to be said.

    • @June, actually the person didn't have the guts to say what he said because he lied like another person (Morgan Freeman) said it. If you call that guts then you need to redefine your meaning of a person with "guts." A person with the guts to stand up and speak out represents himself and don't use another person's name. He hid behind Morgan Freeman's name like a coward

    • Merry Christmas. June and bless Vincent
