    What the hell is wrong with some people? As the nation - especially survivors and family members of the victims of the Vegas attack - try to deal with this tragedy still unfolding, some pretty damn despicable people out there have already engaged in some pathetic, disgusting hoaxes / fake news:

    JACKASSES:
    - Many people began sharing a photo of the shooter, which misidentified him. The man in the viral photo is actually comedian Sam Hyde, and not an “Islamic convert” known as Samir Al-Hajeed.

    - Another social media user shared a photo of a man she claimed to be her brother, who was allegedly lost among the dead and injured. However, the photo featured a
    Mexican man who is suspected of being connected to a murder and is in jail.

    - Another user tweeted that their son was missing after the attack, and immediately followed up the tweet with a plug for their Instagram page.

    - Another Twitter user
    reported that his nephew missing, sharing a photo of Vine star Lil Terio. The tweet was shared approximately 400 times before it was removed.

    - Twitter user shared a photo of pornographic film star Johnny Sins and
    said that it was his father.

    - A user on site
    4chan targeted a Canadian man who shared the same name as the shooter — Stephen Paddock. According to reports, the shooter was a resident of Mesquite, Nevada — not New Brunswick, Canada.


    (FAKE / IRRESPONSIBLE) MEDIA;
    - White House-credentialed website, Gateway Pundit, falsely accused a different man altogether of the shooting. The article has since been pulled down from the site, but several screenshots were taken of the initial story before the outlet retracted its story.

    *It's called 'FACT-CHECKING' and 'RESPONSIBLE MEDIA', dumbasses. Getting the news RIGHT is more important than getting it our 1st!


    LIBERTARIAN LOSER:
    - Wayne Allyn Root, former Libertarian vice presidential nominee and conservative media personality, made claims on Twitter that the shooting was “a coordinated Muslim terror attack. He also reported shooting as “multiple casinos” and reported them as facts. He later recanted the theory of multiple hotels.”

    CAN YOU SAY 'ATTENTION WHORE'...'LIAR'...or what about just 'DONE' as career is OVER...thankfully.
    - His picture has earned a place up on 'the wall' next to Geraldo Rivera for his live feed of 'Al Capone's Vault'.
    :rolleyes:

    Well, to carefully and responsibly deploy a highly technical and scientific phrase, we've pretty much lost our shit.

    We're just not thinking clearly. All kinds of political and conspiratorial sludge seems to pollute our thought processes with the slightest provocation.

    And we had multiple posts and threads on this board stating absolutely that this was ISIS connected. Without any proof at all. Or stating that it had something to do with illegal immigrants. So, it turns out to be, so far as is known, a old white guy with a major altered arsenal, seemingly without a motive. Sad day for all.
