ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” Star Quinta On Fans Asking For School Shooting Episode

Abbott elementary Quinta Brunson

ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” is one of the best shows to hit our TV in years and we’re so happy because it’s really wholesome and reminds us of the series from the 90s!

The show quickly received a Season 2 renewal and a very important time slot. The show also received well deserved Emmy nominations.

While the show is seeing tons of success, Quinta Brunson is very annoyed with the school shooting episode questions.

She shared:

“People are that deeply removed from demanding more from the politicians they’ve elected, and are instead demanding ‘entertainment’. I can’t ask ‘are yall ok’ anymore because the answer is ‘no’.”

“I was definitely at a place where I was fed up with nothing being done about guns in America. Just nothing,” she says. Brunson believes that after the horrific attacks at Columbine in 1999 and Sandy Hook in 2012, Americans were “desensitised” to mass shootings because no action was taken. “I only shared one message on Twitter because I honestly found it sickening. I know these people don’t know that what they were doing was so removed, but it is. If a shooting happens, the first thought shouldn’t be to ask a TV show to recreate said shooting. For what? The exact same energy you’re putting into my inbox can be put directly to your elected officials. If we elect these people and they make promises and tax dollars go to them, you have every right to ask for them to do more. I don’t really care about excuses any more. No. Get it done. It can’t possibly be Quinta Brunson’s responsibility to change things. I don’t work in office. I have a TV show, do you know what I mean?” She lets out an exasperated laugh.

We agree 100%!

Abbott Elementary season 2 will premiere on Wednesday, September 21 on ABC. You can stream the premiere episode on the ABC website, ABC app, or on Hulu the following day.
