NBC reports suspected armed home invader as an ‘unwanted house visitor,’ and Twitter’s NOT having it

An NBC News report on an armed home invasion sent Twitter users into overdrive after the suspect was referred to as an “unwanted house visitor.”

A deadly shooting occurred after a New Jersey man allegedly fought off an intruder, turning the suspect’s own semi-automatic handgun against him, according to the NBC New York report Thursday.

The 29-year-old suspect, Terrence Coulanges reportedly died later at an area trauma center.

And while the details about motives or any connections the two men may have had were still being sorted out by police, the NBC station unwisely chose to refer to the man breaking into a home with a loaded weapon as a “visitor.”

Twitter users raked the station over the coals.
