Well, what happened in Beirut is indeed unfortunate. Over 135 people have lost their lives and 5,000 injured. It is indeed bewildering how the scene from the show and pics from the movie look so exactly similar to what happened in Lebanon. The scene has shown in the movie too and people cannot unsee it. What do you think?
