A flood of celebrities have taken to Twitter and Instagram to send their love, condolences and thoughts to the people of Paris after the shocking terrorist attacks that happened there on Nov. 13. The shootings and explosions, in which gunmen targeted a rock concert at the Bataclan theatre and a restaurant outside the Stade de France where the country’s football team was playing against Germany and the death of more than 100 people, come just 10 months after the tragic Charlie Hebdo murders.
I am shocked and saddened that so many people have been killed and injured in violent attacks in #Paris. Canada stands with France.
— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) November 13, 2015
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau released a statement sharing his horror over the carnage that struck so many in Paris. “I am shocked and saddened that so many people have been killed and injured today in a number of terrorist attacks in Paris, France, and that many others are being held hostage. As the situation continues to unfold, Sophie and I join all Canadians in extending our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those killed," he said. “Canada stands with France at this dark time and offers all possible assistance. We will continue to work closely with the international community to help prevent these terrible, senseless acts. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of France and we mourn their loss.”
A host of famous faces took to Instagram to share what quickly became a symbol of solidarity during the attacks, a peace sign featuring the Eiffel Tower in the middle. Others, like Khloe Kardashian, David Beckham and Diane Kruger, shared their own special visuals. David Beckham, who once lived in Paris when he played for football team Paris Saint-Germain, took to his Instagram on Saturday morning posting a picture of the Parisian skyline writing: "As the sun rises in this beautiful city we remember the people that have died and the families that have lost loved ones... Our thoughts are with you all... PrayForParis."
Our hearts and thoughts are with the people of Paris.
