USA Today was rightfully mocked on Twitter Wednesday for a graphic making it look as if the Texas church shooter used an assault-style rifle modified with a “chainsaw bayonet.”

The news company tweeted, “A look at the gun used in the Texas church shooting,” which included a video with a graphic of a Ruger AR-556 rifle with multiple modifications, including a chainsaw bayonet.





Players of the Video Game “Gears of War”, may recall this weapon being used to chainsaw aliens to death

Should be noted, the Texas shooter did not use said weapon



USA Today later tweeted a clarification saying, “To clarify, the video shows both the shooter’s modifications, as well as other possible modifications. The shooter did not use a chainsaw bayonet.”

Nevertheless, Twitter users didn’t allow such an inept attempt at fear mongering go to waste, and unleashed a Tweetstorm at the news organization.
