The Twitterati on Saturday night reported that a "white supremacist" went on a mass shooting targeting "peaceful protesters" at Jefferson Square Park in Louisville, Kentucky.
This was the top result when searching "Jefferson Square Park" Sunday on Twitter:
Actor Daniel Newman told his nearly 1 million followers that it appeared that "a White Male just committed a Mass Shooting targeting Peaceful Black Americans."
Though Twitter will fact-check the president's opinions, this disinformation apparently didn't merit any similar such fact-check.
On the ground reports came out just hours after the shooting claiming the gunman was a homeless man named Steven Lopez who was apparently kicked out of the park.
"Several witnesses identified Lopez, who had frequented the park, as the shooter," The Courier Journal reported on Sunday. "And video surveillance showed him shooting a handgun into the crowd, the citation says."
"Several bystanders returned fire, shooting Lopez in the leg, according to the citation."
The Courier Journal reported that Lopez was a regular at the protests:
Lopez has been a frequent sight at the protests, which have rocked the streets of Louisville for a month.Rather than the story being one of a white male shooting peaceful black American protesters, the story was one of an Hispanic male shooting a peaceful white American protester.
Had the former been true, this would be the top story in the country. As the later appears to be the case, the story was dropped by the media like a hot potato.
