Manager explains Rousey's 'Sandy Hook' tweet
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," Darin Harvey told MMAjunkie.com.
Adding an "interesting" to her tweet, Rousey on Tuesday forwarded the conspiracy-theory video, which dissects media coverage of the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and questions the official narrative of that day in Newtown, Conn. The video had registered nearly nine million YouTube views by Wednesday afternoon.
"She probably felt that if it caused anybody any grief or any sorrow, especially something related to the death of children, that it wasn't worth the fight," he said.
"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 (rifle) 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."
