In the wake of the tragic attack that has so far left over 60 dead and over 100 injured at a Bastille Day celebration in Nice, France, celebrities have spoken out on social media to offer their condolences.
According to the Associated Press, the truck that ran into dozens of unarmed spectators was filled with arms and grenades. What was first reported as a crash quickly evolved into what appears to be a terror attack.
President Obama made a statement condemning "what appears to be a horrific terrorist attack," and reminded US citizens to stand by the "democratic values that have made France an inspiration to the entire world."
In the aftermath of the Bastille Day attack, celebrities began speaking out. The hashtag #PrayForNice began trending as a unifier among the heartfelt sentiments, though as many have pointed out in similar cases, prayer will not enough to change the current culture of violence. Hopefully, speaking out about these events will spark more aggressive gun control and action from global leaders.
