USA Postpones 'Mr. Robot' Finale After WDBJ Shooting

The network moved the finale out of respect to the victims and their families.

On Wednesday, USA Network announced that they are postponing the Season 1 finale of "Mr. Robot" after two Virginia journalists working for Roanoke-based news station WDBJ were shot and killed on air.

According to Hitfix, the season finale features a "very graphic on-camera shooting," which makes the network's decision to postpone the episode a smart one.

It's a small gesture on the network's part to do what they can after reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were killed by suspected gunman Vester Lee Flanagan, a former WDBJ reporter who went by “Bryce Williams" on the air. Flanagan died from self-inflicted gunshot wounds later on Wednesday, police confirmed in a press conference.
