Politics Latest Messages: Trouble with Fluency? (Sm)..

Twitter tried to say the shooter at Jefferson Square Park - was a white supremacist, turns out

Posted: Jun 29th, 2020 - 3:43 am In Reply to: Black Lives Matter Storm Target: We Will Shut Your Business - Down

he was a homeless Hispanic man, Steven Lopez.

Actor Daniel Newman told his nearly 1 million followers that a white male targeted peaceful black Americans. Though Twitter will fact-check the president's opinions, this disinformation apparently didn't merit any similar such fact-check.

On the ground reports came out just hours after the shooting claiming the gunman was a homeless man named Steven Lopez who was apparently kicked out of the park.

Court records show he was one of 17 protesters arrested on June 17, and a Courier Journal photographer captured his arrest that day in a photo. He was charged that morning with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct, harassment and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Rather than the story being one of a white male shooting peaceful black American protesters, the story was one of an Hispanic male shooting a peaceful white American protester.

Story will now die. The lie has been spread.

They’re done now.
