In the aftermath of the shooting of two journalists in Virginia today on live television USA has postponed the Mr robot final because of similarities in the story. USA made this public announcement:
“The previously filmed season finale of ‘Mr. Robot’ contains a graphic scene similar in nature to today’s tragic events in Virginia,” the cable network said in a statement. “Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode. Our thoughts go out to all those affected during this difficult time.”
Last week’s episode will instead be rebroadcast tonight, with the finale airing Wednesday, Sept. 2.
