Seventeen people died after a shooting at a Florida high school, where a former student who had been expelled for disciplinary reasons opened fire. The suspect has since been arrested, and social media has erupted in grief, dismay, and outrage over gun laws. Here is how celebrities are reacting:
Heartbroken over the news of another school shooting. This is the 18th in 45 days of 2018. Students & teachers shouldn't have to fear for their safety. We must do more to prevent these senseless acts of gun violence. My heart is w/ the people in Parkland, FL. Enough is enough.February 15, 2018
Like thousands in South Florida, we sent the boys to school in Broward County this morning... there are no words to describe the despair, horror & anger. This does not have to be our collective reality. How many more? How many children must not make it home?February 14, 2018
Sending my love to #parkland. #guncontrol #policyandchange pic.twitter.com/lGnYTytBfmFebruary 15, 2018
We owe it to our children and our teachers to keep them safe while at school. Prayers won't do this: action will. Congress, please do your job and protect Americans from senseless gun violenceFebruary 15, 2018
No words, no actions, no laws are enough until we end this epidemic of school shootings in our country. My heart is with the students and parents of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.February 14, 2018
We have to elect candidates that are not funded by the NRA in November. We have an opportunity to elect candidates who won’t allow kids to go to school and get shot. It is disgusting how many times this has happened and Republicans do nothing. You all have blood on your hands.February 14, 2018
My heart deeply hurts for the children and their families in South Florida that are going through a living hell.These senseless acts have to stop. Enough!February 14, 2018
Oh Florida, Oh America. Rivers of tears and sorrow caused by men that fear a reality they created. Our hearts are so tired of breaking, but they will continue to break because it’s all that is left to us citizens. Do better. For the love of God, do better. #RIP #FloridaFebruary 15, 2018
WHEN WILL IT BE ENOUGH?! GUN CONTROL IS NEEDED NOW. WE ARE ALL FUCKING TIRED &HEARTBROKEN FOR MORE INNOCENT LIVES LOST. IM SO SORRY THAT OUR COUNTRY CANT HELP TO PROTECT US. &I AM SO DEEPLY SICKENED THAT PEOPLE CANT STAND UP & SHOUT THAT ASSAULT RIFLES SHOULD NOT BE ACCESSIBLE.February 15, 2018
If you are not willing to re-examine and renegotiate our relationship to guns and violence, you are a culprit and a coward of the highest order. This is the 5th school shooting this year and it’s only February. Grow a spine, America.February 15, 2018
