Like almost all Americans, Caitlin Lowell reacted with shock and panic last week to the massive shooting at Rob Elementary School in Uvalade, Texas.
Unlike most Americans, however, Caitlin Lowell used a really strange and very sensitive meme to share her thoughts on this tragedy.
He is also using genocide for personal gain.
Really, not his best moment around.
As you probably know by now, an 18-year-old gunman shot dead 19 students and two teachers inside a classroom at the school mentioned last week.
He was eventually killed by authorities, but waited for instructions and / or approval before entering, until local police officers patrolled outside the building for about an hour.
It was a real disaster all around.
For reasons that are truly incomprehensible, Lowell has photoshopped a photo of himself – in a fancy gown, from some kind of red carpet event – in front of Rob Elementary School.
Under Caitlin’s edited photo, she included the caption: “America’s favorite baby, it’s not supposed to be that way.”
The teen mom star then captioned the post like this: “I can’t stop crying.”
She tucked in aa teary face emoji and added “#linkinbio” because the link inside her post led her to an article in Katlin’s online magazine about the incident.
As you might expect, social media users have responded to Lowell’s response here … and are truly stunned.
Why did he include a picture of himself in the tribute?
Why is he wearing expensive clothes in the picture?
How can he direct readers to an article that earns him money per click, resulting in mass shooting off cash?!?
“Can’t stop crying. Link to bio … Jesus. And that smile, how can you be so deaf-toned?” One offended follower wrote.
“I’ve never been a big fan of Kat but I could tolerate her for the most part even though I agree with you that it’s absolutely disgusting.”
One third agree:
“Why Caitlin [sic] Pretending to be posing for a photo in front of the school where 21 people were killed? “
This is not the first time Lowell has faced a backlash for his social media posts.
Last year, for example, the MTV star was criticized for posting a clickbate story that suggested her daughter Carly had died.
Caitlin and her husband, Tyler Baltiere, welcomed Carly when they were teenagers and left her to be adopted as a newborn.
He later shared a link to an article on his Instagram story with the caption: “Destructive news about Carly,” with a broken heart emoji.
Not even Lowell’s best moment, though at least in that case he was just pretending to be dead.
In this Texas shooting, he basically used the actual deaths of more than a dozen young children.
He has since deleted the post.
