Actor Michael McKean Of 'Better Call Saul' Mocks Dead Shooting Victims

The actor Michael McKean, known for his role in 'Better Call Saul,' tweeted out, mocking the dead Texas church shooting victims.

Sutherland Springs Texas - 26 people have been murdered, with many more wounded, at a church shooting in Sutherland Springs.

Immediately after hearing about the shooting, Michael McKean, an actor on AMC's 'Better Call Saul,' took to twitter to mock the dead shooting victims.

After the shooting, Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, tweeted out, "Reports out of Texas are devastating. The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now."

McKean responded, "They were in church. They had the prayers shot right out of them. Maybe try something else."

After backlash, McKean deleted the tweet.

After deleting his tweet, McKean refused to apologize, and instead defended his mocking of the dead victims.

"Anyone accusing me of attacking faith couldn't be missing the point more. Faith=good. Murder=bad. Hypocrisy=useless. Bye," McKean tweeted.

AMC has not responded to request for comment as to whether or not Michael McKean's statement aligns with their company values, according to Ryan Saavedra with The Daily Wire.

Well, the end will tell. Not everyone in church has accepted Vrist, not ever on outside hasnt. Eternity will tell and that comment of his is just a dot in time. I think most people feel sorry for the dead and wounded.. Just as any family would to relatives and friends. Never heard of his program so must not have been much.

Well the point isn't whether you agree with them. The point is it's a tasteless rude remark to make after people of lost their lives. Just because you agree with him doesn't make it right

This fool and the others on this post who think like him wouldve said the same thing to Christ after he died on the cross...they assume those peoples prayers were only for "Safety"....but they were for Gods will to be done....All of the apostles died horrible deaths...and God was pleased, because there is a reward in heaven for all of eternity for those who sacrifice this life in Christ for the next...these fools will have ZERO in eternity except eternal punishment of they do not embrace Christ...

He's not mocking the victims. He's mocking the idiots that think prayer is anything but a waste of time.

"They had the prayers shot right out of them." Was he referring to the 2 year old baby? I am even more disgusted at his doubling down on his arrogance. He doesn't give a damn about those Christians who were murdered by a fellow leftist. They just want to politicize the issue to try to impose draconian laws on us. Won't WORK.
