From Lady Gaga to Taylor Swift, Celebrities Respond to Yesterday’s Las Vegas Attack

Here’s how celebrities and politicians are responding to the Las Vegas attack, where a mass shooter left 58 people dead and more than 500 injured.

That death toll makes this mass shooting the deadliest in US history, replacing the Pulse nightclub shooting in 2016.

U.S. President Donald Trump: “We are joined together today in sadness, shock and grief… It was an act of pure evil.”

Andy Cohen: “Devastating news. Horrible. Sick. Unfathomable.”

Lady Gaga: “This is terrorism plain and simple. Terror bares no race, gender or religion. Democrats & Republicans please unite now #guncontrol”

Taylor Swift: “There are no words to express the helplessness and sorrow my broken heart feels for the victims in Vegas and their families.”

Hillary Clinton: “Las Vegas, we are grieving with you — the victims, those who lost loved ones, the responders and all affected by this cold-blooded massacre. The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get. Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA and work together to try to stop this from happening again.”

Ruby Rose: “Everyday is a nightmare. I feel so horrible about the state of the world right now. We have to come together and be as one. Open our eyes.”

Rihanna: “Saying a prayer for all the victims & their loved ones, also for the residents & visitors of Las Vegas! This was a horrific act of terror!!”

Joe Biden: “Appalled by the senseless loss of life in Las Vegas. Jill and I hold all those affected and grieving in our hearts. How long do we let gun violence tear families apart? Enough. Congress & the WH should act now to save lives. There’s no excuse for inaction.”

Debra Messing: “The lights have gone out in the City of Lights. An act of terror was cruelly & cowardly enacted on a crowd of people peacefully enjoying music. The horror and pain suffered by the families & friends is unimaginable. Please God, be there for all who are in need. A fact that people must consider is that NV has no limit on the number of guns a person is allowed to have. The terrorist had a room full of automatic weapons. The body count from this atrocity would not have been nearly as high if there were #commonsensegunreform. As a white American man, this terrorist is ours. We must do more to protect our kids. Bless the souls of the departed, and pray for healing of the injured and the city as a whole. ?? please join the movement to end gun violence.”
