From Sandy Hook to the shooting in Roanoke Virginia and many others, we have seen a growing trend of wannabe established actors being involved in these events as either witnesses or family members getting all sorts of face-time on the networks covering the events.
As J. Paulson points out with the following two videos, this case is no different. The first video is RedSilverJ’s stinging evaluation or Orlando’s “crying mom” and the second is the one where the guy who says he held the doors shut as people banged on it from the inside is exposed as a working actor with several credits on his IMDB page (which I pointed out earlier)
Keep watching the RedSilverJ one till the end and you can see “crying mom’s” audition tape for Wheel of Fortune. And read Jody’s article “Orlando Mass Shooting: This is Just Ridiculous”
(two videos after the break)
Orlando’s “crying mom” is actually Christine Leinonen of Polk county Florida and if it’s the same one I think it is, with this Facebook page, she might be a lawyer. There is one by that name in Polk county.
Well guess what? Her sister set her up a GoFundMe page to collect money for her kid’s funeral expenses. Here’s an interesting fact: the page was set up on the 12th, Sunday. Christine’s son wasn’t announced as being one of the victims until Monday, right?
“But just hours after telling Matt Lauer on TODAY Monday (June 13th) that she was holding out “a sliver of hope” that her son was alive, Leinonen received word that Christopher, 32, was among the victims of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. ” TODAY News
So she was still holding out a sliver of hope that her son was alive while her sister was setting up a GoFundMe page for his $10,000 funeral the day before?
Perhaps not a coincidence, that GoFundMe page has been taken down. The screenshot I have of it is from the cached version.
