Fox News triggers outrage with graphic comparing how much stocks have risen after racist tragedies

On Friday, Fox News displayed a graph that appeared to compare the amount the stock market has risen in the week after various racial tragedies, including the assassination of Martin Luther King, the beating of Rodney King, the Ferguson incident, and the death of George Floyd.


UPDATE: On Saturday Morning, Fox News issued an apology, stating: "The infographic used on FOX News Channel’s Special Report to illustrate market reactions to historic periods of civil unrest should have never aired on television without full context. We apologize for the insensitivity of the image and take this issue seriously.”

Commenters on social media were horrified, and slammed Fox for even making the comparison.
