On Friday evening, November 13, a nightmare unfolded in the streets of Paris when at least 150 people (at the time of writing this) were declared dead, killed by bombs and guns in a series of terrorist attacks. The majority of victims were held hostage and executed in the Bataclan concert hall in central Paris, where the band Eagles of Death Metal performed. (Reportedly, all band members are safe, though as of now, all of the crew is not.) PEOPLE actually has a good piece on what we know so far. It’s horrific.
And as with any national tragedy, celebrities are taking to Twitter to express their condolences, outrage, and general musings. Here are some of them.
My prayers are with the victims and hostages in the horrible Paris attacks. May God be with you all.

This is just an awful, awful thing. I don’t even think “awful” describes it, and I know “thing” isn’t great either, but sometimes, when something so outrageously terrible happens, it’s hard to find any word that will do. Stay safe, everyone.
