Patton Oswalt Slammed For Politicizing Las Vegas Shooting

  Patton Oswalt Slammed For Politicizing Las Vegas Shooting Patton Oswalt is receiving backlash for politicizing the Las Vegas shooting in a tweet posted on Monday. Many social media users are now slamming the actor, accusing him of being insensitive towards the victims of the deadly attack by imagining how a Donald Trump supporter would react to the shooting. As Gossip Cop reported, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock killed 50 people and injured more than 400 at the Route 91 music festival when he fired shots from his hotel room late Sunday, resulting in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. In the wake of the attack, Oswalt took to Twitter to comment on the tragic shooting, thoughtlessly imitating what he thought a Trump supporter would say about the shooting. “‘I know the Vegas situation is grim but let’s wait to hear Trump’s statement he’ll make it all better’ – a concussion victim,” he wrote. Oswalt has since deleted the tweet, but not before some angry social media users voiced their anger over his uncalled for remarks. One Twitter user wrote, “Hey remember that time when @pattonoswalt made fun of the people that died in Vegas for cheap likes and retweets.” Another said, “Not watching another show that has that piece of sh*t @pattonoswalt on it. Disgusting comments.” Another user angrily tweeted, “People are dead and you throw sh*t at Trump WTF is the matter with you? I can’t even imagine how you became famous? You’re disgusting.

Pink is trying to clear things up after causing a stir among some of her fans on social media earlier this week.

Late Monday night, the pop star posted a pair of tweets about the president, including one suggesting she had hope that Donald Trump could change for the better.

Pat Robertson links Las Vegas attack to 'disrespect' for Trump

  Pat Robertson links Las Vegas attack to 'disrespect' for Trump Right-wing televangelist and one-time presidential candidate Pat Robertson linked the shooting to "disrespect" for President Trump and the National Anthem. "Ladies and gentlemen, I'm trying to make sense of this, I'm sure you are. ... Violence in the streets. Why is it happening?" Robertson asked on "The 700 Club" while responding to the massacre. "You know, what I'd like to give you is the fact that we have disrespect for authority. There is profound disrespect of our President all across this nation. They say terrible things about him.

HuffPost asked Pink about the social media controversy on Tuesday during an interview to discuss her new album, “Beautiful Trauma.” And she made it clear how she felt about it all ― from social media to the president himself.

“I know that I shouldn’t feed into some of that shit, but it’s who I am and I don’t like injustice … The first tweet was: ’You’re terrible, POTUS, and you’re doing a terrible job. And do you seriously have time to talk about the NFL? Puerto Ricans have no power and you’re talking about the NFL.’”

The singer didn’t mean for her next tweet to be interpreted as support for Trump. The “What About Us” singer added she wants to have hope that things will get better.

“My second tweet was, ‘Let me take a different approach. Let me try to be hopeful,’” Pink said. “Right? That’s what Barack Obama inspired in us ― was hope and change. I’ve seen a lot of people come back from heroin, alcohol, rape, all kinds of things. So, I believe that people can change. So, I want to be hopeful sometimes.”

Trump Tweets . Butler University, a private school in Indianapolis, has responded to criticism of a "Trumpism & U.S. Democracy" course that was offered to students in order to "potentially engage" in "strategies for resistance" to President Donald Trump .

“The naive little girl in me wants to think that even Donald Trump can change,” she added. “So maybe berating him isn’t the way. Maybe inspiring him and maybe he, even he down deep in there, maybe could still be a good person. He still has a chance to be a good president. And that’s what I got vilified for ― was the hope. And now apparently I voted for him. I’m racist. All these things.”

On Wednesday, Pink took to Twitter in an attempt to make her stance clear, noting that she did not vote for the president last year. She also called his behavior “appalling.”

Pink said she’s upset not only with government, but with the communication breakdown that appears to be happening in many areas inside Washington, D.C.

“Dissent used to be the cornerstone of democracy. We used to be able to disagree and still co-exist peacefully. We have lost the art of communication,” she said. “And my marriage is a testament to communication. My mom and my relationship is a testament to a lifetime of coming back to the table. I think love is coming back to the table. And I wish we could all just come back to the table. And it’s just hard to watch.”

Never one to stand by and remain idle, Pink continued, “So, I have rants every couple of months or years. And I’ve just had it. He [Trump] has inspired the worst in us and myself included, sometimes.”

Pink’s new album, “Beautiful Trauma,” comes out on Friday.
