Most reacted with repulsion upon hearing and believing initial reports that Catholic teens surrounded and harassed an elderly Indian at a pro-life rally in Washington, DC.
Abriss reportedly wished death on the group of MAGA teens and their parents.
Upon learning the whole truth, most retracted their outrage and sympathized with the teens. Not all were forgiven for jumping the gun.

Digital company INE Entertainment has fired a journalist who publicly wished for the death of several Covington Catholic High School students and their parents in a pair of tweets over the weekend. Aside from his job as a post-production supervisor at INE, Erik Abriss is a contributor to New York Media’s pop culture site Vulture.
“We were surprised and upset to see the inflammatory and offensive rhetoric used on Erik Abriss’ Twitter account this weekend. He worked with the company in our post-production department and never as a writer,” the company said in a statement to TheWrap on Monday.
“While we appreciated his work, it is clear that he is no longer aligned with our company’s core values of respect and tolerance. Therefore, as of January 21, 2019, we have severed ties with Abriss.”
