After Angelina Jolie filed for a divorce from her husband of two years Brad Pitt, rumours started surrounding Pitt’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. She, purportedly, responded furiously when asked to comment on the Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie divorce on the ‘Today Show’ on Tuesday.
According to entertainment outlet The Good Lord Above, when the ‘FRIENDS’ star was asked about the Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie divorce, she responded furiously saying, “F*** society, you people make me sick. While you idiots are talking about this Brangelina bulls***, you’re ignoring what just happened yesterday with Terence Crutcher.”
She added, “An unarmed black father of four was driving home from college when his car broke down. The police showed up and shot him while both of his hands were in the air. This was all caught on video, which you can easily watch on the Internet. But instead, no, none of you will do that. You will instead focus on the fact that a celebrity couple is going through a divorce.”
The outlet also claimed that Jennifer Aniston pointed at the people’s reactions when some athletes chose to kneel during the National Anthem, suggesting that the same people are not bothered when an innocent person is shown being executed in a video clip.
According to a report by Snopes, Aniston did not appear on the ‘Today Show’ on Tuesday and make those comments. The Good Lord Above is a website that publishes satirical stories, according to its disclaimer.
