Just days after the tragic shooting that took place in Uvalde, Texas that left 19 children and two adults dead, Quinta Brunson is calling out fans who want her to do a school shooting episode. The Abbott Elementary creator took to social media to address the request after she asked multiple times about the potential episode. “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 y’all ok’ anymore because the answer is ‘no.’”https://twitter.com/quintabrunson/status/1529543520909787136?s=21&t=RtyAwc41NTJBg7XKEmMT4gShe also added, “Please use that energy to ask your elected official to get on Beto time and nothing less. I’m begging you. I don’t want to sound mean, but I want people to understand the flaw in asking for something like this. We’re not okay. This country is rotting our brains. I’m sad about it.”https://twitter.com/quintabrunson/status/1529543725734473728?s=21&t=RtyAwc41NTJBg7XKEmMT4ghttps://twitter.com/quintabrunson/status/1529545389036212225?s=21&t=RtyAwc41NTJBg7XKEmMT4gBrunson then posted a screenshot of one of the messages she received. “This is just an idea. For the eventual series finale, a school shooting episode to highlight the numerous ones in this nation. Formulate an angle that would get our government to understand why laws need to pass. I think Abbott Elementary can affect change. I love the show.” https://twitter.com/quintabrunson/status/1529571903102324736?s=21&t=RtyAwc41NTJBg7XKEmMT4gWhat are your thoughts on this?
