Occupy Oakland Shooting Spurs Insensitive Tweets

Posted By on Fri, Nov 11, 2011 at 8:15 AM

Oakland is reeling from yet another murder, and one that's severely damaged the reputation of Occupy Oakland, which was planning to celebrate the first month of the encampment yesterday. While protesters insist last night's shooting near the camp at Frank Ogawa Plaza had nothing to do with their movement, media reports are saying than man had in fact been camping with the group on the plaza for the last few days before he was shot in the head last night.

Needless to say, the violence triggered strong opinions from every asshole on Twitter. Naturally, every Twitter user had to offer their two cents about Occupy Oakland upon hearing the news of the shooting. Our sister blog, the Exhibitionist, details just how some insensitive Twitter users greeted the news:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
