Abbott Elementary actress and creator Quinta Brunson is upset that fans of the ABC sitcom have asked her to write a school shoot episode.
On Wednesday, Brunson, 32, said viewers should redirect their energies to political changes.
“It’s amazing how many people have asked for a school shoot episode of the show I’m writing.” She wrote on social media.
“People are so far from demanding more from the politicians who elected them that they are demanding ‘entertainment’ instead. I can’t ask anymore ‘are you okay’ because the answer is ‘no’,” she wrote in a Twitter thread.
“Please use this energy to ask your elected official to respect Beto time and no less. I beg you,” Brunson urged her followers.
Her plea comes after 19 students and two teachers were shot dead at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday. Another 17 people sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Alleged gunman Salvador Ramos had legally purchased two AR-15 assault rifles on his 18th birthday; He then took one to the school before opening fire, according to police.
“I don’t want to sound mean, but I want people to understand the mistake of asking about something like this. we are not fine. This country rots our brains. I’m saddened by this,” Brunson continued in her posts.
even she shared a screenshot from “one of the many” film-related pitches she receives.
“This is just an idea,” the fan writes. “For the eventual series finale, a school shoot episode to highlight the numerous in this nation.” Formulate an approach that leads our government to understand why legislation needs to be passed.
“I think Abbott Elementary can make a difference. I love the show,” the proposal concluded.
Officials from ABC and the show did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Post.
The hit mockumentary premiered in December. Brunson plays the main character, second grade teacher Janine Teagues at the fictional Philadelphia school.
