Notorious Violence

I don't understand why all of this violence is happening at the screenings for Notorious, but this is totally the wrong way to get your 15 minutes of fame.

Four people were stabbed at an unofficial after party for the release of the film in New York this past weekend. One of the victims is in critical condition after being stabbed multiple times. The party was touted as official, but Fox Searchlight claims they had no involvement with the event.

This comes after a separate shooting of a man in Greensboro, North Carolina after another Notorious film screening. The shooting took place after an argument broke out.

You would think that after watching a film where a man was murdered, you wouldn't take life for granted and treat it as the precious gift that it is. If you go see Notorious, go hug a child or pet a something kind, seriously.
