Following the horrific event of Las Vegas shooting that took about 50 lives and injured over 500 people, celebrities have come forward condemning the act and paying their condolences to the public affected.
It is noted that the incident happened as Jason Aldean was performing on stage at Rotue 91 Harvest Festival.
Aldean later responded to the incident on his instagram post:
Tonight has been beyond horrific. I still dont know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe. My Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. #heartbroken #stopthehate
One of the most emotional reactions to the incident came from Jimmy Kimmel, who happens to hail from Vegas. In his message he said, “When someone with a beard attacks us, we tap phones, we invoke travel bans, we build walls. But when an American buys a gun and kills other Americans then there’s nothing we can do about that because of the second amendment, I guess. Our forefathers wanted us to have AK-47s is the argument, I assume.”
In response to Paul Ryan, Lady Gaga came forward and tweeted a heartfelt message to everyone on twitter.
