The horrific Sandy Hook school shooting that killed 20 children and six staff members was a hoax?
So claimed former Atlanta Braves star Chipper Jones in an odd tweet that suggested the FBI confirmed the shooting was not real, Huffington Post reports.
The next day, on Saturday, Jones apologized, saying he misunderstood what happened.
“My apologies for my Sandy Hook tweet yest. I had heard something from someone which I thought to be credible and tweeted w/out researching.
He added: “It was irresponsible of me to do that and will not happen again. Please accept my heartfelt apology to those who were hurt or offended.”
