Wealthy filmmaker Michael Moore and Rainn Wilson, an actor best known for his role in the American version of "The Office," referenced a parody article at The Onion in tweets on Wednesday, duping a number of their followers, Twitchy reported.
"NRA Sets 1,000 Killed In School Shooting As Amount It Would Take For Them To Reconsider Much Of Anything," Wilson tweeted, without mentioning the source of the article. He did provide a link to it, however.
Twitchy said that if Wilson knows The Onion is a parody site, he's not admitting it.
"[W]ow, just wow. I don't know what else to say. One THOUSAND precious lives need to be wasted first??" one person asked.
"[W]ay to dare America #NRA #really?" added another follower.
"Wow. Guess 900 is just fine," said "Andy C."
"Hard to finish reading it," another person tweeted. "Makes me so angry that people can be so stupid and ignorant. Makes me grateful to be Canadian."
The message has been re-tweeted 127 times.
Some told Wilson that The Onion is a parody site, but to no avail.

I guess when your whole life is making up lies, it becomes easier to believe other people’s lies.
Easy to understand. Liberal reality is ALWAYS what a lib claims it is. See Global Warming/Terrorism Islam etc for 1000 watt glowing examples.
Why would they NOT buy it? It totally fits the narrative.
What these libtards will never understand is the people they mock; the redneck, gun toting, Bible clinging, NRA member, would be the first to give his life to save the life of children threatened by a madman.
On the other hand, the likes of Michael Moore would be the first running the opposite way crying and wetting his pants letting children die.
I see that Moore is also throwing a tantrum over Reid not having the votes needed to pass the ban. He wants something done anyway.
I'm grateful he's a Candian, too!
It would help if leftist extremists had senses of humor.
Rainn Wilson probably DOES know it is a parody site, and is laughing right along with them....
Maybe Rainn is a raging liberal, but something tells me he isn’t....
If Rainn is anti-gun that’s rather odd as he made a violent movie called Super just a about 2 years back.
So he’s just as sharp in real life as on that show! No acting required I guess.
