After the tragic mass shoots in the last week, Quinta Brunson, star and creator of Abbott Elementary, is making it very clear to her fans that are looking forward to Season 2 that an episode addressing the gun violence epidemic is off the table.
After fans asked Brunson to cover this issue on her show, Brunson was quick to say; “Wild how many people have asked for a school shooting episode of the show I write. People are that deeply removed from demanding more from the politicians they’ve elected and are instead demanding ‘entertainment.’ I can’t ask ‘are y’all ok’ anymore because the answer is no…Please use that energy to ask your elected official to get on Beto time and nothing less. I’m begging you…. I don’t want to sound mean, but I want people to understand the flaw in asking for something like this. We’re not okay. This country is rotting our brains. I’m sad about it.”
