Young celebs are taking to social media and reacting to the horrific news about the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub on Saturday evening (June 11) in Orlando, Fla.
At least 50 people were killed by Omar Saddiqui Mateen when he opened fire inside the club with 53 people having been hospitalized.
“i want so badly to just be brave, but this weekend has made me so scared. meet & greets after a tour stop? gay bars during pride month?” Tyler wrote afterwards, now scared to do anything.
woke up, saw the news, at a loss for words. at this point, i'm just terrified.

despite it all, i've never felt more proud to be gay. being part of the lgbtq+ community is a blessing, and no violent act will change that.

My heart breaks for the victims of the shooting and their families. This was senseless violence and murder. #prayfororlando
