Media Calls For Moment Of Silence For Shooter Who Was Misgendered
Media · Mar 29, 2023 ·

U.S. — Media outlets around the country joined hands today to call for a moment of silent remembrance for Audrey Hale, a mass shooter who was misgendered.

"Words cannot describe the deep pain felt by the entire trans community as they watch one of their own being cruelly misgendered on the news," said MSNBC anchor Pam Broxley. "Trans people are in fear for their lives that they might be misgendered next. This is causing real-world harm to their self-perception, which amounts to a terrorist act. Please join us for a moment of silence for Audrey. Say her name."

All anchors across cable news, including Don Lemon, Joy Reid, and Jake Tapper, then bowed their heads in silence — including Tucker Carlson, who was only silent due to staring at the camera in stunned disbelief.

Experts are warning that the number of mass shooter misgendering victims has skyrocketed in recent weeks and say this disturbing trend may cause some trans people to feel less affirmed, which could then cause them to become mass shooters.

At publishing time, The White House had announced a candlelight vigil in memory of the shooter.
