CNN: 25 People ‘And An Unborn Child’ Killed In TX Shooting

CNN sent a tweet on Sunday asserting that “25 people and an unborn child” were killed in the Texas church shooting, angering Twitter users.

Law enforcement officials have put the official body count at 26 because one of the slain churchgoers was pregnant. CNN decided to separate the unborn child from the death count, instead putting it at 25 plus the child.

“The shooter killed 25 people and an unborn child,” CNN said in an accompanying article. 

Twitter went after CNN immediately for not writing “26,” with nearly every response referencing the error.
