Celebrities react to the Batman shooting.

 

When I heard about this late last night my initial reaction (after shock, obviously) was that I wasn’t going to post anything about it. This is first and foremost a celebrity blog, and writing about a shooting is really more for a newspaper than for me. Aside from that, I feel like if I go into all the details (which you can read on TMZ, if that’s what you’re after) then I’m basically saying that he’s a celebrity worth covering, and that’s foul.

That being said, this is one of those incidents that has deeply affected many a celebrity, so I’m just going to post their reactions and let you get all your other information from more legitimate news sources.

President Obama: “Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic shooting in Colorado… As we do when confronted by moments of darkness and challenge, we must now come together as one American family.
