It was recently discovered that Fox used actual footage from the 2013 terrorist attack at the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi.
The episode “3:00 PM – 4:00 PM” of Fox’s 24: Legacy aired Monday showing U.S. officials evaluating footage of a terror attack. The scene was part of its fictional plotline, but it was in fact real footage, as people shot fire at the crowds running in fear.
The producers later apologized for the incident promising to remove the scenes from all future broadcasts of the episode.
Despite this, Kenyans weren’t having it and took to twitter to communicate their outrage. Here are five tweets that will make you hate Fox even more.

1.Shame on you for using that footage…
2. It's not a market. It's a shopping mall.
Yes, we do have those in Africa.
