K-Pop responds to the heartbreaking Orlando shooting tragedy
The K-Pop industry mourns with America and the LGBT community worldwide as we recover from one of the largest mass shooting in US history. Early Sunday morning, forty nine innocent people lost their lives in a popular gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, while fifty-three others were wounded due to a senseless shooting by a disturbed man. Our hearts are broken by the horrific aftermath, and some members of the K-Pop community responded and sent their condolences via social media. G-Dragon, Brian Joo, Jo Kwon, Jay Park, Amber Liu and BtoB's Peniel were a few of the caring idols to show their support.
G-Dragon shared the love with this simple Instagram post captioned, "More Love."
