BREAKING NEWS – FEATURED
Warner Brothers officials confirmed to the Denver Post on Tuesday that the 38-year-old actor Oscar-winning actor is currently in Aurora paying a visit to the victims of the tragic shooting.
“Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers,” an assistant for Susan Fleishman, executive vice president for Warner Brothers corporate communications said.
In the wake of the theater shooting that killed 12 and injured 58 last Friday, fans created a Facebook campaign asking Bale to visit hospitalized children. “Dear Christian Bale, please visit the injured children from the movie massacre as Batman,” the campaign asked. “You have the power to be a hero right now — not a movie hero, a real flesh and blood one. Sincerely, Everyone.”
Bale did release a statement about the tragedy on Saturday, saying, “Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.”
