Twenty-two Arianators (Ariana Grande fans) heard and saw their idol for “one last time” as the phenomenal pop singer’s Dangerous Woman Tour in Manchester Arena, England on Monday evening ended tragically.
An explosion marred Ariana’s gig as it ended, claiming the lives of 22 spectators and injuring at least 60 people. Manchester police said a “suicide bomber” was behind the “terrorist attack.”
News about the tragedy had set Twitter on fire as messages of condolences and grief from ordinary netizens and biggest Hollywood celebrities to the victims and their families came rushing in. After being reported safe and well, Ariana posted an emotional tweet saying, “Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I’m so sorry. I don’t have words.”
Filipino teen heartthrob Bailey May, who was born and raised in England, and other local stars reacted as well.
Big-name US music artists and celebrities also took to Twitter to express their sympathies.
While the tragedy might have brought the entire world into fear and uncertainty, given the callousness of those behind it, we are comforted by the fact that people, from ordinary people to the biggest personalities, are there to show how much they care and offer their support, whichever way they can.
