USA POSTPONES MR ROBOT DUE TO VIRGINIA NEWS SHOOTINGS

USA postponed Wednesday night’s scheduled season finale of Mr. Robot in light of the murders that occurred live on air this morning in Virginia..  Timing is strange as usual in this world..
THIS from USA:

The previously filmed season finale of Mr. Robotcontains a graphic scene similar in nature to today’s tragic events in Virginia. Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode. Our thoughts go out to all those affected during this difficult time

It’s interesting to consider the amount of times that reality and fiction seem to intertwine so well together at the right moment..

There are countless examples.
The one that came to mind almost immediately was the way BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER delayed GRADUATION DAY due to the Columbine killings..

The MR ROBOT set for Wednesday will now air on September 2..
