The Onion published this article too soon yesterday: “Nation Celebrates Full Week Without Deadly Mass Shooting.”There was a shooting this morning at New York’s Empire State Building. At least 11 people were shot.

Many tragedies have happened in the U.S. this summer, including the shooting at a Colorado movie theatre and a deadly incident at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. 

The mock article describes throngs of people gathering in Times Square to celebrate a week without a shooting. 

As of today, The Onion added the line “Update: never mind” to the article.
