Christian Bale Will Be Visiting Aurora Shooting Victims [UPDATED]
After James Holmes entered a midnight screening and murdered 12 people and wounding over 50 others, the cast of the movie “The Dark Knight Rises” has cancelled interviews and press tours. However there was an Internet campaign calling for Christian Bale to visit the victims.
Bale said “I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.” Bale is visiting the shooting victims that sustained injuries after the shooting. The Internet campaign was started by Jonathan Jared Adams and the Facebook description of the campaign said:
“Hey Facebook, I have an idea … All those kids in the hospital recovering from gunshot wounds at the Batman massacre could use a visit from their hero. I propose we (as in all of Facebook) should make enough noise asking Christian Bale to visit these kids in the hospital dressed in the real Batman outfit. They need to know heroes can be real, too, not just the bad guys. Not asking anything fancy from you, if you read this, share it on your wall. If you want to go the extra mile, post it in other sites as well. Show the kids there really are heroes.
Dear Christian Bale, please visit the injured children from the movie massacre as Batman. You have the power to be a hero right now —not a movie hero, a real flesh and blood one. Sincerely, Everyone”
Many people agreed that Bale should visit the victims, but should not be dressed as Batman.
