Gunplay Tweets That Shooting at Sandy Hook Was a Government Conspiracy
Last week's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut has been understood as a national tragedy. It's no surprise, then, that rappers have been responding to the tragic events—on Twitter, in interviews, or through songs. In hip-hop and beyond, most have been expressing what an awful event the shootings were. This morning, though, Gunplay took a bit of a different approach, when he tweeted that, "Government killed dem kids to take our guns away. Another 9/11. Dont get it twisted." He followed that up with another, where he posited that, "Yall are sheeple 4 thinking da government aint gotta hand in every crisis since the great depression." He has since deleted the tweets, but below check out a screenshot from his page of the first tweet, and then of a RT of his second.
