‘This Is Us’ made a tearful tribute to victims of synagogue shooting

NBC tear-jerker “This is Us” posted a tribute to the victims of Saturday’s horrific synagogue shooting.

“Our hearts are broken. We stand with our television hometown of Pittsburgh,” read a title card displayed at the end of Tuesday night’s episode.

Portions of the show are set in the Steel City.

Series creator Dan Fogelman posted an image of the title card to Twitter after the episode aired.

The card also directed viewers to a gun-control advocacy group.

“To learn more about ending gun violence visit everytown.org,” the card said, referring to the Everytown for Gun Safety group largely financed by former mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Naturally, the call to action did not sit well with the gun lobby.

“I don’t know where some get the idea that depriving the innocent of self-defense solves anti-semitism (sic), but it sure wasn’t learned from history,” NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch tweeted late Tuesday night.
