USA Network Postpones Finale Of ‘Mr. Robot’ Because Of Violent Scene Similar To Virginia Shooting

USA Network has announced that it will delay the finale of its well-received summer hacker drama Mr. Robot due to “a graphic scene similar in nature” to a shooting Wednesday at a Virginia TV station that left three journalists dead,
including the shooter. Critics who had seen the episode confirmed that
the contents indeed seemed similar to the day’s events.

It fascinates me to look back at the brief history of entertainment and see all of the times fiction predicted reality.. Like Donald Trump running for president on the Simpsons.. Or the Lone Gunmen show predating 9/11.. Or now this, a show recorded some time ago set to air showing a scene just like one that would play out in real life…

Life imitating fiction, or are we just living in a Matrix ??
