Missouri denies social media outrage against Paris terrorist attack as ‘fakes’

The University of Missouri said that social media posts saying that the Paris terror attacks diverted attention from campus protests are fakes.

The university said the posts and tweets were made by people outside the Mizzou community to create conflict, according to its website.

“Our hearts go out to the citizens of Paris and all those affected by the tragic events….” a post on the Missouri.edu website. “While our community has faced difficulties over the past week, we express our sincere sympathy to those who have been affected by the events in Paris and remain committed to making Mizzou stronger and more inclusive.”

Black Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters made headlines after Breitbart compiled insensitive tweets and remarks, implying they were there at the school, showing their outrage.

In addition to the “Racist White people kill me, You want everyone to have sympathy for YOUR tragedy, but you have none for ours.” tweet, this person said:

“Maybe if you people get some respect and tolerance to hear our outcries, then we’ll care more about yours. We are not heartless like you! — Melanin Monroe (@NeonElectricity) November 14, 2015

“Interesting how the news reports are covering the Paris terrorist attack but said nothing about the terrorist attack at #Mizzou,” tweeted Kyra D. Hardy, referencing a claim of a KKK attack that was proven to be a hoax.

” Not taking away from Paris we love yall but we have terrorist in USA Called KKK #Mizzou. Gov got work to do,” tweeted Peachs&Honey.

“Not to take away from Paris at all but just how they’re getting news coverage & the worlds support, we deserve it too. #Mizzou,” tweeted Dar & Donnie.
