So tragic. Paris, France is in a state of emergency amid a deadly shooting, hostage situation and scary explosion that has left at least 127 dead, and celebrities like Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner and more have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts and prayers for the victims.
Our thoughts are in Paris on the evening of Nov. 13. As details about the terrorist attacks in France are unfolding, celebrities have taken to Twitter to make it known that their hearts are with the victims of this deadly shooting, explosion and hostage situation. See what Kendall Jenner, Niall Horan, Andy Cohen, Gilles Marini and more have written on their social media accounts.
It has confirmed by France that this is an act of terrorism, as multiple shocking tragedies took place on Nov. 13. Several people were dead and wounded after a shooting at a restaurant in central Paris, and around the same time, an explosion allegedly occurred, which disrupted a soccer match between France and Germany. A second shooting took place at Paris Bataclan concert hall, where more than 100 are also being held hostage and a shootout is allegedly taking place between police and a target on the roof. Update: The crisis is over, with around 153 people reportedly dead. Survivors of the crisis said it was a “bloodbath.” French President Francois Hollande has called the attacks by ISIS an “act of war.”
The restaurant where the gunman opened fire is actually right near where the deadly Charlie Hebdo shootings took place back in January. During that attack, two brothers killed 11 people and injured 11 more inside the newspaper’s building. It is unclear as of now whether or not these instances are related.
News is continuing to develop about this shocking and heartbreaking situation, but celebrities have flocked to Twitter to share their sentiments.
