Morgan Freeman Didn’t Give the Quote on the Sandy Hook Tragedy That’s Been Going Around Facebook

By 12.17.12

Which is why this quote below has been shared tens of thousands of times on Facebook and Twitter (and by Piers Morgan) since Friday—despite it not actually coming from Freeman.

Freeman's reps denied today that the actor was responsible for the quote; meanwhile, some dude named Mark has taken responsibility for it on Reddit. But we'd advise you to take Mark with a grain of salt, too. As Abraham Lincoln famously said, “The problem with Internet quotes is that it's difficult to confirm their veracity.” Wise man, that Honest Abe. He killed vampires.
