Her manager, Darin Harvey, later told MMAjunkie.com that Rousey meant no disrespect.
"Ronda's the kind of person that doesn't take everything at face value, and doesn't have 100 percent faith in all the news that's put out there by the mainstream press," said Harvey.
Harvey clarified that he and Rousey were horrified by the shooting. He said he hadn't recently spoken to her, but speculated she didn't realize the extent of the controversy surrounding the video when she forwarded it.
"I don't think that she did anything so horrible," Harvey said. "I think what she was doing is retweeting something that gave a different perspective as to what transpired on that day. I don't think anything in that video denied that it happened.
"I don't know if it's the truth or not. I'm not an investigator, but it seemed to me that if that Bushmaster really was sitting in the trunk of a car, and the guy killed himself inside the school, how would the gun end up in the trunk of a car? Maybe it's just bulls--- facts. I didn't investigate it. I think Ronda thought it was interesting and retweeted it, and that was the extent of it. I don't think she was saying the mainstream press was wrong. It was just a different perspective."
