Tragedy strikes yet again. Fifty people died and another 53 were injured early Sunday when a heavily-armed gunman opened fire and seized hostages at a gay nightclub in Orlando, in what is being called the worst mass shooting in US history.

Celebrities have taken to Twitter to not only mourn the death of so many innocent lives, but also to question gun laws in the US, and to stand up for the LGBTQ community.
