A lot of people have been weighing in on the viral incident with the boys from Covington Catholic High School and Native American Nathan Phillips and his group.
The students got a lot of support from one well-known Hollywood actress.
She was so upset by the false media narrative that she took to Twitter to try to talk to the social media mob and explain to them the harm that they had done.
From Daily Wire:
On Monday, Patricia Heaton, the star of “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “The Middle” and a devout Catholic, minced no words attacking members of the media who vilified the Covington Catholic High School students for actions they did not commit regarding their encounter with a Native American man near the Lincoln Memorial on Friday, after the March for Life. Heaton issued a searing series of tweets addressing those who had attempted to ruin the boys’ lives, pointing out that their rush to judgment could not be ameliorated by their subsequent apologies,
She noted the people that perpetrated the false narrative will likely not suffer any harm at all.
“It seems to me that an apology without some kind of accompanying action which speaks to the seriousness of their transgression – a suspension from work, some loss of pay – renders any apology empty,” she said.
What did they learn from BuzzFeed? They went right out and jumped the gun again. As they always do if it helps the narrative that they want to push. They suffer no punishment so they don’t care about exercising proper judgement and journalism.
But she isn’t betting on it:
