It didn't take long for the attention of the public to switch from the horror of learning that a two-year-old boy was snatched by an alligator at a Disney resort to placing blame.
And just as in the case of the boy who fell into the gorilla enclosure, the blame appears to be focused on the parents.
At first, there were a few who questioned how such a tragedy could have happened.
However, they were quickly followed by people who didn't hesitate to hold the parents responsible for their son's death.
But not everyone was pointing fingers. Twitter users responded in force to set out the facts and beg for sympathy for the bereaved parents.
Still others objected to the online blame game and called out the critics for their insensitive tweets.
Why the sharp difference in response? One commenter had this explanation.
After nineteen hours of searching, reports are saying that the boy's body has finally been recovered.
