Orlando Shooting Guides Amy Schumer to Cut Gun Scene from her Movie



June 12 was a black day for Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, the United States where more than fifty persons died in a mass shooting attack by a terrorist. The gunman was killed later by Orlando police after a 3-hour fight. Around 60 persons were injured during Orlando shooting. It has been reported as the most heinous attack by a single shooter and the deadliest incident of violence against LGTB community in United States history. It has also been reported as the severest terrorist attack in the United States post 9/11 attack in 2001.

Omar Mateen, 29, an American, born to Afghan parents is identified as the assailant. He was a regular visitor of the nightclub and is supposedly having links with ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) though CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) has not been able to find any links between Mateen and ISIL.

Amy Schumer, actress, and comedian has taken a lesson from this mass shooting incident and has revisited her already created latest film that is yet to be released. Schumer's new comedy project that is yet to be titled is based on a mother-and-daughter kidnapping in which she will be seen alongside Goldie Hawn of The First Wives Club fame.

Schumer, deeply shocked by the tragic shooting in Orlando in a homophobic mass attack has decided to cut a scene from the movie that involves gun firing at others by a person. The age-old debate is always there whether movies inspire criminals or real-life crime stories inspire movies. Though the details of the scene that is cut are not very much clear but definitely it is in line with the expectation by the whole world to curb violence and killing of innocent people all across the globe. Terrorism has been increasing like an unstoppable virus that needs to be curbed at the earliest.
