Celebrity Twitter is as mean as a snake following any kind of deadly shooting.
No facts, no problem. Stars rush to Twitter to advance their causes and, much more importantly, slam their ideological foes in the nastiest ways possible.
“Blood on your hands”
“You’re killing our children”
That’s precisely what played out hours after news broke of a school shooting in Florida that left 17 people dead. We still don’t know all the details of the tragedy. And, once we do, it’s possible there are some common sense solutions politicians can consider.
That didn’t stop stars from weighing in almost instantly regarding the shooting. Here’s just a sample:

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.

The NRA and the GOP is complicit in every one of these horrifying shootings. They are holding this nation hostage.

This is to you @marcorubio they are talking DIRECTLY TO YOU. Your prayers are between you and God. Your actions are between you and the public. Stop taking gun blood money and DO something to keep these children safe. https://t.co/wrBwUvi0rn

Imagine getting on Twitter today to argue with people that nothing needs to change. Imagine using your time today to argue that your hobby is more important than 17 people who were murdered in a high school.
