I see a lot of personal feelings about the sincerity of some of our celebs. It makes me wonder about your sincerity if all you are thinking about is Kim K or any other celebs comment. I can’t see anyone not having genuine sad feelings for a tragedy such as this. These were babies. It is no different than a pedophile raping a child and taking away their innocence because dead or alive they will never be the same and neither will their parents. I pray for everyone that was touched by this tragedy whether their child died or their life was spared. The children and adults whose life was spared will need some kind of therapy and the children will possibly have nightmares for a lifetime. So who is wasting time bashing celebs when there is a whole community in mourning and all the love you can muster up should be sent to form an aura of comfort to these families…period!

what like celebs can’t feel bad for the tragedy that happened funny no celebs that actually live in connecticuit have said anything publically yet. and y’all aren’t taking into account that the shooter may have had a mental illness or developmental disability such as autism that made him jealous of the students his mother taught

Kim K makes a tweet about this, such a hypocrite.
She was very recently filmed at a shooting range with “children” killing hand guns.

Dear Mrf1212,

Truer words were ever spoken…When it so-called “Celebrities” like these Animals, who love “twitting” their own Butts, and bad haircuts, using this terrible tragedy to hype their own attention!!!
