As news of the shooting at YouTube’s San Bruno, California, headquarters was still coming in, actor-comedian Michael Ian Black tweeted of his plans to “politicize the fuck out of” the shooting and blame it on the “NRA and its blood-soaked lackeys.”
“Another shooting. I’m going to politicize the fuck out of it, and so should you,” Black tweeted. “The NRA is a terrorist organization.”
When Twitter users urged Black to wait for the facts before politicizing the incident, the Wet Hot American Summer star responded by admitting he does not know who the shooter was but is sure they got their gun via the “NRA and its blood-soaked lackeys. No, I don’t know who the shooter is. It doesn’t matter if they are an NRA member Yes, I know how they got the gun: the NRA and its blood-soaked lackeys made it possible for that person to get it,” Black wrote.
Alyssa Milano appeared to blame the shooting on the NRA and was roundly ridiculed for it.
While news of the mass-shooting at YouTube’s headquarters unfurled, Milano tweeted that if the NRA or NRATV was “run by brown or black people, it would be labeled a terrorist organization with hate propaganda programming that incites violence.”
