The World Is Uniting With Orlando After Horrific Mass Shooting At Popular Gay Club

Credit: @lin_manuel / @davidcruisesf / Twitter

The world is coming together to condemn the tragic shooting that claimed 49 lives at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. At around 2 a.m. Sunday morning, a shooter carrying an AR-15 assault rifle entered Pulse Nightclub — during Latino Night — and opened fire on a crowd of more than 300 people. The shooter was later killed by police after a three-hour standoff. After the shooting, people took to social media to express their condolences to the families of victims and to stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ community.


Mexican band Los Tigres Del Norte called for more love after the death of more than 20 LGBTQ Latinos.

Although the motive for the shooting is not completely certain, the most widely accepted motive is that the shooter was incensed after seeing two men kissing in downtown Miami. The man’s father claims religion was not a motive.
