Paris V. Mizzou

[Editor's Note: Strong Language]

During the course of the mass-casualty terror attack in Paris Friday night, some on Twitter used the occasion to compare what was happening overseas with what's been happening at the University of Missouri.

Some made direct comparisons between the two situations:

Some castigated those who are more distraught by the Paris tragedy than by what's happening at Mizzou:

It should be noted that Student Body President Payton Head retracted his statement about the KKK on the University of Missouri campus, saying:

“I'm sorry about the misinformation that I have shared through social media...I received and shared information from multiple incorrect sources, which I deeply regret.”

CNN also reports that a police investigation showed the allegations of a KKK presence to be false.

Some came right out and blasted the media for covering Paris more than the #Mizzou protests:

While protests are ongoing on the University of Missouri campus, reports put the total number of casualties in Paris at 127 and counting.
