Plenty of celebrities vented their sadness and frustration this past weekend about the heartbreaking massacre that took place Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut by writing comments for fans to read.
But actor Morgan Freeman wasn't one of them.
Someone released a lengthy quote blaming the media for the shooting and attributed it to Freeman. Read the entire quote, courtesy of E! News.
However, Freeman's rep told this to E! News: "Morgan neither made statements or posted those statements. We are trying to find out who did, but they did not originate from him."
Here is a sampling of what stars did say, via Twitter, in response to the shooting.
