In the wake of the deadly elementary school shooting in Texas, that took the lives of 19 students and 2 adults, the creator of the TV show Abbott Elementaryis firmly rejecting calls for the show to do an episode based on the tragedy.
Quinta Brunson took to Twitter Wednesday to put any notion that she would cover the topic to rest, and instead urged people to contact politicians.
"Wild how many people have asked for a school shooting episode of the show I write. people are that deeply removed from demanding more from the politicians they've elected and are instead demanding 'entertainment.' I can't ask 'are yall ok' anymore because the answer is 'no,'" Brunson wrote.
She continued, "please use that energy to ask your elected official to get on Beto time and nothing less. I'm begging you."
Brunson even shared an example of the type of messages she has been receiving, she captioned the photo, "Exhibit A: one of many."
