‘Mr. Robot’ Finale Postponed Due To Similarities To Virginia Murders

USA Network has postponed the season finale of Mr. Robot due to similarities to the real-life tragedy that took place today in Virginia as Vester Lee Flanagan shot and killed WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward live on air

The Mr. Robot twitter put out a statement, “The previously filmed season finale of ‘Mr. Robot’ contains a graphic scene similar in nature to today’s tragic events in Virginia. Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode. Our thoughts go out to all those affected during this difficult time.”

The finale will now air on Wednesday, September 2.
