USA Network decided to postpone the "Mr. Robot" series finale Wednesday.

The "Mr. Robot" twitter account tweeted Wednesday that the previously filmed season finale of Mr. Robot contains a graphic scene similar in nature to the tragic events in Virginia. 

The network decided not to air the show out of respect for the families, colleagues and viewers. The twitter account said, "Our thoughts go out to all those affected during this time."

The season finale will now air Wednesday, September 2, at 10 p.m.
