Disney Legend Blames GOP for School Shooting

Josh Gad School Shooting Tweet

In the aftermath of a tragic school shooting, a Disney Legend casts his blame for the tragedy. But instead of calling out the actual shooter or even spreading a message of condolences and a plea for peace, he touts political rhetoric and claims the GOP wants kids to die.

On Monday, March 27, a transgendered 28-year-old named Audrey Elizabeth Hale stormed into and shot up Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, killing three children and three adults before being subdued by authorities.

Hale believes herself to be male, and Nashville police have reason to believe that her trans identity motivated her lethal actions against her innocent victims, but the case appears to still be under investigation.

“We have a manifesto,” Nashville Police Chief John Drake revealed. “We have some writings that we’re going over that pertain to this date of the actual incident. We have a map drawn out of how this was all going to take place.”

Now, it appears that Disney Legend and Actor Josh Gad felt the need to speak up on the issue of gun violence on social media. But rather than hold the shooter responsible for her own actions or even speak up against the divisive atmosphere surrounding transgender issues, Gad used the moment to blame the Republican Party and its stance against stricter gun control laws for everything that transpired.

That’s right. According to Olaf from Disney’s Frozen franchise, school kids died this week because,

“The GOP have decided that guns are more important than kids. There are no two ways to look at this situation. It doesn’t matter how many children are massacred. They have decided it is okay to let kids die. Not mind you read certain books. That’s unacceptable. But dying is fine.”

Many of the thousands of comments spoke up against his blanket statement, with many outright shocked that this children’s movie star would think to drop such an erroneous and polarizing comment just as people in Tennessee and all across the country mourned the loss of life.

One person outright said,

“How can you even write this? Do you have an inkling of how many hearts are breaking right now? No I don’t think you do. I’m afraid hatred & blind judgment has hardened your heart. You need to get right with God … soon.”

But it is unlikely that Gad will be required to retort his unapologetic rant condemning half of the country for the tragedy.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
