Abbott Elementary's Quinta Brunson Hits Back at Fans 'Demanding' a 'School Shooting Episode'




 

Abbott Elementary creator and star Quinta Brunson is sick to her stomach - not only over America's "love affair" with guns, but the apparent demand for her hit ABC comedy to address the gun violence epidemic in Season 2.

On Tuesday, 19 children and two adults were killed when a gunman opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. (The 18-year-old suspect was also killed.) The tragedy marked the deadliest American school shooting since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary nearly a decade ago.

"Please use that energy to ask your elected official to get on Beto time and nothing less," she pleaded. "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."

Earlier that night, President Biden addressed the shooting in a primetime address. "We as a nation have to ask when in God's name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby," he exclaimed. "When in God's name do we do what we all know in our gut needs to be done? I am sick and tired of it. We have to act. Don't tell me we can't have an impact on this carnage."
