Seems like those Facebook “likes” and “shares” are worth the click!
After a Facebook sharing/liking campaign asking Christian Bale to visit the shooting victims went around the site shortly after the Colorado theater shooting, The Dark Knight Rises star didn’t hesitate to make it come true.
Warner Brothers officials confirmed Tuesday last week that the Oscar-winning actor, 38, was in Aurora, Colorado visiting and paying respect to the victims of the horrifying incident. They said in a statement:
Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers.
Shortly after the theater shooting that took 12 lives and injured 58 people, fans created a Facebook campaign requesting Bale to visit the hospitalized victims. The campaign read:
Dear Christian Bale, please visit the injured children from the movie massacre as Batman. You have the power to be a hero right now — not a movie hero, a real flesh and blood one. Sincerely, Everyone.
Maybe superheroes are real, after all.
