The long anticipated season finale of Mr.Robot was finally here…only to be postponed. The question many people have for USA Network is why? Why was Mr.Robot’s season finale postponed? The reason for the postpone was really because of a similarity too close to believe between real life and the episode.
Just a couple days ago, a reporter and cameraman were murdered on live TV as their viewers watched. It just happens that in the season finale episode, there is a scene with the same murders with just different people.
USA Network states that they believe airing the episode would be disrespectful to the families and friends of those victims, so they will air the episode on September 2nd instead. Details about the season finale were not leaked as seeing that USA Network still wants you to be as excited for it as you were last night.
“The previously filmed season finale of Mr. Robot contains a graphic scene similar in nature to today’s tragic events in Virginia,” the network said in a statement. “Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode.”
