Many people -- including celebrities -- have spoken out on the horrific tragedy that struck Newtown, Conn., on Friday, when a 20-year-old gunman opened fire and killed 26 people, including 20 children, at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
However, Morgan Freeman is not one of those people. The actor has not released a comment on the incident that took place a few days ago, despite numerous stories reporting otherwise.
The lengthy quote attributed to Freeman is indeed a hoax.
"Morgan neither made statements or posted those statements. We are trying to find out who did, but they did not originate from him," the actor's rep told E! News.
