Did actor Morgan Freeman call President Donald Trump "a bonafide sack of shit" on Twitter after not responding to yesterday's shooting in Jacksonville, Florida? No, that's not true. Trump indeed still hasn't made a public comment about the Jacksonville shooting but actor Morgan Freeman did not call him a "sack of shit" for his tardiness.
The confusion stems from a tweet posted by user @mjfree on August 27, 2018 who goes by the name "Morgan J. Freeman" (archived here) which read:
"Could you imagine @realDonaldTrump being SILENT on #Jacksonville murders if the shooter was non-white or an immigrant? Our President is a bonafide sack of shit."
Here is the full tweet as long as it is still up:
Could you imagine @realDonaldTrump being SILENT on #Jacksonville murders if the shooter was non-white or an immigrant? Our President is a bonafide sack of shit.-- Morgan J. Freeman (@mjfree) August 26, 2018
However the bio of that Twitter account reads:
Filmmaker, TV producer, husband, activist & father. Fierce opposer of Trump. Big fan of snacks. Not the actor! 📽️ ✊🏽👪🍪📺
The actor Morgan Freeman goes without the middle initial "J." and also doesn't seem to be active on Twitter.
