In the wake of the Manchester terror attack, at Ariana Grande’s concert, celebrities are taking to social media to share their condolences for the 22 people who have been confirmed dead and the 59 injured.
Many celebrities are also rallying behind Grande, showing support for the singer, who was unharmed by the explosion but tweeted that she felt “broken”.
The attack, which ISIS has claimed responsibility for, is the deadliest terrorist attack on Britain since 2005, The New York Times reports.
Greater Manchester Police confirmed on Twitter early this morning that the alleged attacker “died at the arena” during the explosion, and he was using an “improvised explosive device.”
Police also arrested a 23-year-old man on Tuesday in South Manchester who is allegedly tied to the attacks.
Celebrities including Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Celine Dion, Miley Cyrus, and David Beckham have all spoken out on Twitter and Instagram about the attack, sharing messages of heartbreak, anger, and confusion.
“I’m so sorry you had to go through this Ari. This isn’t fair and nobody should have to go through this. My thought and prayers are with you and the victims. I love you so so so much 💗 🙏🏼,” Demi Lovato penned on Instagram alongside a photo of her embracing Grande.
“Every musician feels sick & responsible tonight – shows should be safe for you. Truly a worst nightmare. Sending love to Manchester & Ari,” Lorde posted on Twitter.
