Celebs React To The Horrific Tragedy Happening In The US City Of Charlottesville
For those who don't know what's going on, a 'Unite The Right' - aka a hate gathering of neo Nazis, white supremacists and all-round scum of the Earth - went down in the American town of Charlottesville, Virginia.
Feeling like something that we as a society should be far beyond by now, it was a horrific display of racism, discrimination and violence by the White Supremacists, even resulting in having a car plough through anti-racism protesters that has left a person dead, and many others injured.
President Donald Trump has remained vague on this terror attack, giving us a half-ass statement about how this literal racist rally has "many sides of hatred" to it.
We will continue to follow developments in Charlottesville, and will provide whatever assistance is needed. We are ready, willing and able. pic.twitter.com/mCTYBgUePi

However, some of your fave celebs have spoken out, and rightly so, on the disgusting attack and what it represents about the US, and by extension the world.

I would like to speak out against these ignorant ass fools marching in Charlottesville. Believe it or not, they do not represent the majority of "white people". Most of "us" white folk (I'll say it again, I subscribe to the human race and we're all pink on the inside) are embarrassed of these small dicked privileged spoiled ass losers. Like these good people in this picture. Most people are good people, there are small groups of every sort that make it ugly for the rest of us. I apologize on behalf of these idiots. Maybe mommy and daddy should cut off their allowances.
Hell of a day for the President to forget how to tweet. pic.twitter.com/ABffmwwH8D

Never imagined in 2017 my feed would be filled with "reject white supremacy" again and again. But to be surprised is a form of privilege.
