Parkland High School shooting: Mother ignores daughter's call from Florida school only for five minutes of fame
The internet caught a mother live on CNN ignoring her daughter's call to pick her up after she was escorted out of the Florida shooting scene, just to exploit her five minutes of fame.
The mother of a girl who studies in Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School ignored her daughter's calls to pick her up from the school's front porch minutes after she was escorted out by law enforcement officers. The reason being - she had to finish a live interview with CNN.
Social media caught the frivolous reaction on tape and it went viral on a Reddit forum discussing the shooting fiasco.
This mom on CNN was just on the phone with her daughter and said "let me do this interview and I'll come get you." WTF WOMAN GO GET YOUR DAUGHTER YOU F---.
She probably wasn't much of a parent before the shooting, so why start during it? I hope it was worth it. That woman's going to have to go into hiding.
Another commenter on the forum, wacrover, wrote:
You're completely right - and to me, the worst part about it is that 'I come first' and lack of love? compassion? whatever the right word is for what she did - I'm stuck thinking there's tons more parents out there doing tons worse shit to their kids than abandoning them emotionally at a time when they were so crucially needed.
More commenters were appalled at the mom's behavior:
Then the interviewer said "Thanks, but you should probably go get her." and she's like: "Nah, let's do this."

"One second, Megan, mommy will be right there. Can you just give me some good quotes first, hon? Any carnage you want to describe? This nice reporter needs some content."
