Orlando Survivor Hassled By Conspiracy Fans For Working At Fox Affiliate

Patience Carter has been deluged with hate and bizarre conspiracy theories because she worked at a local television station.

We here at Crooks and Liars are no fans of Fox News, but we're not stupid enough to confuse a local Fox affiliate with them. Nor are we evil enough to suggest that a survivor of the massacre in Orlando is somehow proof that the entire tragedy is really a false flag operation to take away guns because one survivor worked for a Fox affiliate in Philadelphia.

Yet, that's precisely what happened after Patience Carter gave an interview after she was shot in the leg early Sunday morning. These people are just deranged.

Raw Story:

A video posted to YouTube by New World Agenda — and seen by over 100,000 viewers — breathlessly described the shooting as: “PULSE SHOOTING HOAX – CRISIS ACTOR REVEALED? PATIENCE CARTER is FOX NEWS INTERN!”

According to one commenter: “There she is. On Fox F*cking news. On Fox F*ck news. There she is. Once again, the F*cking bullsh*t they are shoving down people’s throats. We need to arrest all these people. This has gone way to far. They have pulled this out too many times. There has to be change. There’s no way they can use this event. This is faked. This is staged. They are using actors. There is no doubt about it. This is 100% bullsh*t.”

Another conspiracy theorist took photos from Carter’s Instagram account and manipulated the time stamps to make it appear that she was uninjured after the shooting. The actual photo posting on Instagram shows a date of 11 June 2016.

Dear people with nothing better to do, please accept my unsolicited suggestion that you either get help, or fck yourselves.
