Liberal Journo Makes Sick ‘Joke’ Following Terrorist Attack
A Boston-based freelance writer disgustingly used the Manchester terrorist attack to make jokes about Ariana Grande’s music and name.
“MULTIPLE CONFIRMED FATALITIES at Manchester Arena. The last time I listened to Ariana Grande I almost died too,” David Leavitt, a freelance writer who has written for CBS and Yahoo, tweeted.
Leavitt tweeted another tasteless joke shortly after, writing, “Honestly, for over a year I thought an Ariana Grande was something you ordered at Starbucks.”
After getting significant backlash for the thoughtless tweets, Leavitt tried to justify and walk back the tweets, asking, “too soon?” and eventually writing, “Sorry 4 offending. Didn’t realize the magnitude of the tragedy. I always make stupid jokes about whatevers trending. Condolences 2 families.”
CBS, who has published some of Leavitt’s freelance work before, publicly disavowed him.

Still, Leavitt hasn’t deleted the tweets or offered a real apology, and people are unloading on him.
Dude, no. Delete and sincerely apologise to save yourself a shred of grace and dignity. Don't just carry on joking, you plum.
