Orlando's Pulse Nightclub Will Not Reopen As Memorial
Orlando nightclub owners correct false reports.
Pulse nightclub in Orlando will not become a memorial. Earlier, it was reported that the venue of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history would reopen as a memorial. The owners have officially stated that this is not happening.
According to the Associated Press, a bogus Instagram post is the culprit behind the rumor.
"OOPS! Looks like we got the media’s pulse racing with an inadvertent Instagram posting that incorrectly stated the Pulse Nightclub was reopening as a memorial," said the owners, per Reuters. "Pulse is NOT reopening as a memorial," the club's rep added in a statement.
On June 12th, 2016, 49 people who were killed as result of a terror attack targeted towards the LGBT community. 53 people were injured.
