She meant no disrespect...
Ronda Rousey's manager has commented on a video that she retweeted that is linked to a group who believes that the Sandy Hook kindergarden shooting was a conspiracy. Rousey rewteeted a video, which takes apart the media coverage of the tragedy and questions the official narrative of what took place, with the comment of "interesting." The video has reportedly received over nine million YouTube views and has resulted in one of the people involved with the tragedy being harrassed; a psychologist who reportedly took in six children and a bus driver who fled the shooting says he has been constantly called and emailed by people accusing him of being an actor.
Rousey eventually deleted the tweet and said that she didn't necessarily agree with the theories, but felt that "asking questions and doing research is more patriotic than blindly accepting what you're told."
Rousey's manager, Darin Harvey, told MMAjunkie, "Ronda's the kind of person that doesn't take everything at face value, and doesn't have 100 percent faith in all the news that's put out there by the mainstream press." He added about the deletion, "She probably felt that if it caused anybody any grief or any sorrow, especially something related to the death of children, that it wasn't worth the fight."
He added, "I don't think that she did anything so horrible. I think what she was doing is retweeting something that gave a different perspective as to what transpired on that day. I don't think anything in that video denied that it happened. I don't know if it's the truth or not. I'm not an investigator, but it seemed to me that if that Bushmaster (rifle) really was sitting in the trunk of a car, and the guy killed himself inside the school, how would the gun end up in the trunk of a car? Maybe it's just bulls--- facts. I didn't investigate it. I think Ronda thought it was interesting and retweeted it, and that was the extent of it. I don't think she was saying the mainstream press was wrong. It was just a different perspective."
