Sandy Hook Photographer Tells ‘Truthers’ to ‘Go to Hell’ on Anniversary of Massacre

”My photos are the furthest thing from fake news,“ J.B. Nicholas writes

Journalist J.B. Nicholas has a message for anyone that doesn’t believe the tragic Sandy Hook shooting actually occurred: “Go to Hell.”

“Covering the school shooting was the most important work I’ve done as a journalist. My photos are the furthest thing from fake news,” Nicholas wrote on Narratively on the anniversary of the shooting.

On Dec. 14, 2012, 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and six adults   at Newtown, Connecticut’s, Sandy Hook Elementary School before committing suicide. Sadly, there is a community of people who don’t believe the shooting took place and point to a wide range of conspiracy theories to explain the situation.

The spread of fake news has been a major talking point across the media industry in recent months, but Nicholas wants everyone to know that the Sandy Hook shooting is not part of the fake news problem. Instead, “these so-called truthers” are the problem.

“I was actually there, in Connecticut, twelve hours after the massacre, observing and taking photographs of the school for the New York Daily News,” Nicholas wrote. “I know for a fact that the shooting really happened, that my photographs are not fabricated, and that Gene Rosen, who I found broken and sobbing in the bathroom of the town’s diner three days after the killings, speaks the truth.”

He continued: “F— anyone who says otherwise.”
