“Just heard about the disturbing shooting in Orlando, Florida ~ Praying for all the victims and the victims’ families~ Let’s spread love & not hate.”

However, several stars have deleted their messages, as malicious comments by homophobes criticized them for standing up for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The shooting, which occurred at 2:02 a.m. Sunday, local time, at a gay club in Florida, is being considered one of the worst mass shootings, with so far 50 people killed and more than 53 injured.
