Sutherland Springs Texas – 26 people have been murdered, with many more wounded, at a church shooting in Sutherland Springs.
Immediately after hearing about the shooting, Michael McKean, an actor on AMC’s ‘Better Call Saul,’ took to twitter to mock the dead shooting victims.
After the shooting, Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, tweeted out, “Reports out of Texas are devastating. The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now.”
McKean responded, “They were in church. They had the prayers shot right out of them. Maybe try something else.”
After backlash, McKean deleted the tweet.
After deleting his tweet, McKean refused to apologize, and instead defended his mocking of the dead victims.
“Anyone accusing me of attacking faith couldn’t be missing the point more. Faith=good. Murder=bad. Hypocrisy=useless. Bye,” McKean tweeted.
AMC has not responded to request for comment as to whether or not Michael McKean’s statement aligns with their company values, according to Ryan Saavedra with The Daily Wire.
