Nail bomb planted at concert, 22 dead, including young teenaged girls and children, and this guy offers his reaction (which to be fair, has probably ended his career as a free-lance journalist, forever).
A 7pm EST, as the first reports of the atrocity emerged, Boston-based journalist David Leavitt took to Twitter to write: 'Multiple confirmed fatalities at Manchester Arena. The last time I listened to Ariana Grande I almost died too.'
'Honestly, for over a year I thought Ariana Grande was something you ordered at Starbucks,' he continued, oblivious to the insensitivity of his first tweet.
Leavitt, who used to write guide to Boston on a freelance basis for CBS, was immediately inundated with complaints from outraged Twitter users who labeled him a 'vile scumbag' and called for him to never work again.
CBS freelance writer David Leavitt posted this vile tweet on Monday night within hours of a terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester which has left 19 dead and 50 injured
Unrepentant, he replied to them: 'Too soon?' and even boasted receiving a notification from the micro-blogging site to notify him of the surge in attention his profile was suddenly receiving.
And of course, the Twitternet goes out of its mind: "Islamaphobia!"
