Aurora Theater Shooting

Aurora theater shooting: Deadmau5 rips Playboy model for heartless tweet

Shortly after news broke about the Aurora theater shooting at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises, Playboy model Tricia Evans tweeted, "I heard the new Batman movie is really 'to die for'!

The resulting Twitter back-and-forth reveals plenty about the cultural impact this horrible event is having nationwide.
