Paul Feig took to social media to remember his friend Laura Ann Carleton, who was shot and killed after engaging in an argument with a man about the Pride flag she had on display outside of her store.
“Our wonderful friend Lauri Carlton (seen in this picture) was murdered yesterday in her store @magpi_shop in Lake Arrowhead by a 27 year old man who didn’t like that she had a large pride flag hanging outside of her shop,” Feig wrote on Instagram.
“He ripped it down and when she confronted him about it he shot and killed her.” The Bridesmaids filmmaker added that he was “devastated” for her family and the LGBTQ community, for which she was a “true ally.”
