What It Feels Like When The Internet Decides Your Daughter’s Death Is Fake

02:04

What’s it like when a loved one is shot in cold daylight — and the Internet doesn't believe you. After events like the attack in Las Vegas, there’s this thing that happens: trolls take to social media, to declare that the event that just happened (school shooting, terror attack, etc.) did not happen. They claim that the crime scenes are fake and the people we see crying on television are “crisis actors.” Often, these trolls act as so-called “Second Amendment Truthers” who believe that liberals and government officials are staging mass shootings in order to manipulate pubic opinion in favor of gun control.
