Beyonce, Lupe Fiasco, Vic Mensa, Ariana Grande, Juicy J & More Respond to Tragic Orlando Shooting

On one tragic night in Orlando, Florida, a mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub had the entire country hurt and in awe of the tragedy.

The tragic event has been considered one of the worst cases in American history in which more than 50 people were confirmed dead, and another 50 severely injured. Pulse Nightclub is a gay club in Florida, and the very fact that so many innocent people were harmed on the weekend of Pride Week, is horrendous and appalling. Prayers, love, and support have been sent out to friends and families of loved ones who were affected that night. Even musicians and artists paid their respects and remorse for those whom were lost because of their own relationships with the LGBTQIA community. See some of the artists’ posts below to see how they have shown their acceptance and love to the people who deserved it most.

These are some poignant and moving celebrity reactions to the shooting (below):

Condolences and prayers to Orlando

Why on Earth would anyone wish to see two extremely idiotic beings point guns at each other and kill people, rather than see those same hands hold one another and show love?

Stop Hate. Stop Violence. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️#revolutionoflove

She’s right. It is a demonic cycle and only people who cause hate and suffering, are the only people who can stop it. We can heal if we try. These celebrities try to get that message across, that though they may seem superhuman to us on a daily basis, they are just as uneasy and disheartened by the atrocity that took place.

Of course, none of this has been easy on anyone. Not celebrities, not the LGBTQIA community, not any community! Nor should it be! Those who act against love, have no love in their hearts. It is amazing, the immense destruction one being can cause from the makings of a contraption. It is ridiculous that nothing has ACTUALLY been done to control this violence in our world.

In the wise words of an old Black Eyed Peas song Listen Now:

“If love and peace are so strong / Why are there pieces of love that don’t belong?… ‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’ / Where is the love (Love)”

From any home, any town, any city, any state, any country, any continent, any land, any sea, any world, or any universe… We are who we are. We love who we love. We should SUPPORT when we can, and we should demonstrate power of peace over the power of pain.
