In a now-deleted tweet, WKRN news anchor Bob Mueller earlier today boasted about participating in “assault weapon golf” at Montgomery Bell State Park just weeks after the Covenant school shooting in Nashville. The image shows Muller with “Waylon, Will, and Sarah” and described the outing as a “fun day.” According to Mueller, “The gun shot a golf ball down the fairway.” He later apologized, stating it was a “mistake on my part” and that he’s “usually more attuned.” Mueller further explained, “All of it was a mistake. This was a booth set up by the tournament to raise money for charity. You paid $100 to charity to shoot the golf ball down the fairway to get it close to the hole. It was a fundraiser. I made a mistake posting the photo.”
Readers quickly shared their opinions on the tweet. Neil Kornutick posted “Personally just don’t think we should normalize guns like this.” Jeremy Rogers re-tweeted with the comment: “In a city that is still coming to terms with the Covenant shooting and failed special sessions… We have WKRN’s very own posting this? What even is AW Golf?” Cheryl Wright, who says she has been a friend of Bob’s for over thirty years, opined, “What is the meaning of this?” Why would you post a photo and a message that seem to associate a beloved sport with a weapon designed to kill people?” Ashford Hughes, Sr., had one of the final comments before the tweet was deleted: “The logic and necessity of this troubles my mind.”
For 25 years, Bob has hosted his own golf tournament. The Bob Mueller M.S. Celebrity Challenge has raised over $1,500,000 to fight M.S. Bob has also been a member of the Nashville Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Board of Trust for the past 20 years.
