Outraged Pulse Club Owner Slams Made-for-TV Re-Enactment of Attack

The re-enactment is set to air on Univision

The owner of the Pulse nightclub in Orlando has slammed Univision for planning to air a detailed reenactment of the shooting massacre at the gay club that left 49 people dead and more than 50 injured last June.

As NBC News reported, the episode, titled "Baño De Sangre," or "Blood Bath," is set to run on the broadcast network's weekly news show "Crónicas De Sábado." The show uses actors and special effects to depict the massacre in gory detail. The episode will also feature interviews with survivors.

Univision had posted a trailer on social media, though it has since been taken down.

Barbara Poma, the owner of the club where the largely LGBT and Latino victims were attacked, posted on the "Crónicas De Sábado" Facebook page that the "lack of respect for these grieving families" was "incomprehensible."
