Beto O'Rourke interrupts Greg Abbott's during Texas shooting press conference
Following the tragic school shooting in Texas the creator of the show Abbott Elementary said the number of requests she’s received for a school shooting episode is “wild”.
On Tuesday 24 May, an 18-year-old man opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. He killed 19 children and two adults.
Quinta Brunson, the writer and star of mockumentary style school sitcom, Abbott Elementary, has revealed that since the fatal attack she has received requests for an episode about an active shooter situation.
Brunson spoke out on Twitter about the “wild” requests and asked people to put their energy towards lawmakers and politicians to enact change.
In a series of tweets, Brunson wrote: “Wild how many people have asked for a school shooting episode of the show I write.
“People are that deeply removed from demanding more from the politicians they've elected and are instead demanding ‘entertainment’.
“I can't ask ‘are yall ok’ anymore because the answer is ‘no’.”
