Ruisrock is a rock festival in Turku.

Gilmore stated that she was not Omarion's publicist, that she had not issued the release, and that she had been misquoted. Omarion shortly thereafter issued a statement denying any connection with AR PR Marketing or Shana Gilmore, saying he was "in no way affiliated with the PR marketing firm mentioned in the piece" and that Gilmore was "not a legitimate representative of the artist, is not known to the artist, and is not acting on the artist's behalf.".
The release and subsequent Reuters article engendered a great deal of fierce criticism aimed towards the singer, given that Omarion had been nowhere near any of the bombing sites, and also given that the release made no mention of the fatalities and injuries actually incurred in the incident. The following day, on July 8th at 1:30 pm BDT, Reuters ran a story identifying a public relations firm, AR PR Marketing, as the source of the press release, and further identifying Shana Gilmore as his publicist, quoting her as saying, in response to a question as to why anyone would need to pray for Omarion, "He wasn't hurt or anything, but just the fact that he was there and all that." .
