These celebrities just want attention. They want you to think they are some special shit heads. They don't give a fuk about things that are not worth money. Don't fall for their bullshit.

As if any of these self absorbed asswipes ever pray- oh please.......if they were genuine, they would silently feel their emotions-not broadcast it to the world-like no one else is feeling sorrow????? Can you imagine what drunk Kathie Lee will say on her show?
I don't even know half of the "celebs" on this thread.
What a terrible tragedy. I don't understand how someone could do something so horrible. I'll send one of my daughters to cheer up the locals.

[quote]"If we'd kept prayer in the schools, this wouldn't have happened".
Mike Huckabee just said as much on Fox News. For real.
i don't give a shit what "celebs" think. They are uneducated, worthless, drug-addicted, fucked up beings.
These shootings are as much part of the american culture as mcdonald's and nike
Has Honey Boo Boo released a statement?
Michael Moore @MMFlint
The NRA hates freedom. They don't want you to have the freedom to send your children to school & expect them to come home alive
Has Countess Helen issued a statement yet?
David H. Koch and his wife Julia?
Has Princess Diane von Diller-Furstenburg posted yet?
Evangelical Radio Host Bryan Fischer: “Here’s the bottom line — God is not going to go where He is not wanted. We kicked God out of our public school system. I think God would say to us, hey, I would be glad to protect your children, but you gotta invite me back into your world first. I’m not going to go where I’m not wanted. I am a gentleman… Back when we had prayer, the Bible and the Ten Commandments in schools, we did not need guns.”
So if we put the Lord's Prayer back in school, the fundies will get behind gun control?
The parents can return their Christmas purchases this year so this has worked out pretty well for them
I would have protected the shooting victims had I been there.
Wendy Williams @WendyWilliams
I have a heavy heart. My thoughts & prayers are w/all those families affected by the devastating shooting at #SandyHook Elementary School.
I fucking love you, R38.
Has Kelly Osbourne chimed in? Is she still breathing?
"Fig Newtowns" coming to a store near you shortly. Had some productive meetings with Wakefern Corp. this afternoon.
We have to unite as a country and BAN assault weapons .... NO private party needs a semi automatic ... This has to stop !! - Kirstie Alley
All these Z listers (if that) coming out of the woodwork! Has Elaine Joyce or Kim Lankford tweeted anything yet?
The people who want to hold onto their guns will stress the issue of God being shut out of education as the reason for this. They will try to conceal the actual issue by ranting and raving about another, in order to take the focus off. Mark my words.
@seanonolennon Heart aching over Connecticut. This doesn't happen when people go nuts in Japan or UK because Americans are over-armed. We need to disarm!
Who cares what they said? Anyone not bothered by this is a psychopath.
Vince Neil: "I did say gun control but I didn't think 90% of you would care more about your gun than dead children!!!"
Rob Delaney: "If your response to calls for gun control is “Should we get rid of cars too?” the answer is, for you, yes. You should not have a gun or car."
Russell Simmons: "Today is NOT the day to talk about gun control, Today is the day to finally DO SOMETHING about it!"
Elayne Boosler: "2day's not the day 2 talk gun control? Really? When spinach kills only 2 people it's off the shelves that day. For a month until it's safe."
Marlon Wayans: "My sentiments exactly. GUN CONTROL!!! Get guns out of killers hands"
Roseanne Barr: "Gun Control will create even more crime-like the Drug Wars."
Roseanne really said that? I'm disappointed in the stupid bitch.
I'm crying reading at all these comments, dear God!
Adam Lambert @adamlambert Sending energy to the families who are suffering this horrible tragedy...
We should ask during Chanukah two questions: How can I harvest the miracles available now and how can I plant seeds for miracles tomorrow? - Yehuda Berg
This bed is so bloody comfy! *snuggles* - Kieron Knight
Yep r73, and it's no anomaly, she's very pro-gun.
Am I the only one who thinks it's wrong to interview the children who were in the school on the news today? - Adam Lambert
Roseanne Barr: "ARM EVERYONE! every school must have armed guards! Don't let the fascists take R weapons away- they activated the mentally ill!"
Roseanne Barr: "Gun control is the issue that they will use to lock us all down, when they should be talking about mental health & psychotropic drugs."
(I'm in favour of taking away her guns AND drugs.)
There's nothing more vile than reading about someone's "prayers" in response to a tragedy. Newsflash: No one is listening to them, and they have no effect on reality.
Kelly Osbourne: sending out so much love to the families and victims of the school shooting! Its so devastating!! #PrayForNewtown
Liza Minnelli: Marshmallows are my favorite!
So much for that school's "impeccable reputation"!
Alyssa Milano: What the f*ck is wrong with people?
iTS eaSy lighTning foldS -- Brian Wilson
Roseanne and Morrissey should get married and bore each other to death with their noxious opinions.
So courageous. When will they tweet about violence in movies and on TV?
Kinda funny-on Alyssa Milano's twitter feed they have Piers Morgan tweeting- "Take a look at this appalling photo and tell us America doesn't need stricter gun laws" and it leads to a picture of Obama wiping a tear from his eye during the news conference.
R12, I hate you for making me laugh.
"I'm devastated by these senseless killings and will have an extra pint of vodka in their honor"- Lindsey Lohan
Samantha Ronson: "Children are supposed to be our future, maybe these tragic victims who have passed can at least make this world a better place. #guncontrol"
Martha Stewart: "stricter gun control- why have we not adopted new rules and laws??? what is wrong with us????"
Tom Arnold: "@NRA so your best solution is to arm Kindergarteners? The time to address this issue is now people. What are you so afraid of?"
@Anne Hathaway the suffering of these poor people reminds me of what Fantine went thru. See Les Miz and vote! For the children.
Wait. Rosanne is taking the NRA position? I know she has had mental health issues, but she wasn't this nuts? Is it really her account?
I am so utterly devastated for the families in ct today. as a heartbroken mother. As an enraged citizen. - Idina Menzel

I have been waiting all day to hear what this seminal cultural figure had to say about Sandy Hook--bless you for passing this along.
Just as you all say you can't stop a killer from killing, we CAN make tools to do so LESS AVAILABLE than a fucking happy meal. - Chris COcker
Devastated for our CT neighbors. Praying 4 families who lost their precious children. Senseless. - Kathie Lee Gifford
Even The fucking POPE has spoken:
"The Holy Father was promptly informed of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown and he has asked me to convey his heartfelt grief and the assurance of this closeness in prayer to the victims and their families, and to all affected by the shocking event. In the aftermath of this senseless tragedy he asks God, our Father, to console allthose who mourn and to sustain the entire community with the spiritual strength which triumphs over violence by the power of forgiveness, hope and reconciling love."
The Pope's too big for Twitter?
I just cannot take seriously anyone who spells words using numbers. However, these are quite entertaining to read.
R107 You'll want to avoid Prince's tribute to Dick Clark in the current Entertainment Weekly. Not only does he spell words as number, he spells "I" as "Eye."
@ItsTheSituation none of this kids will grow up to party GTL god bles them in their deaths #homeboyz #GTL
@SueSnell's_mom: Much better. Sleeping too much, but the doctor's says she's young enough she'll forget all about it in time...#ITSALRIGHT!
Bill Maher @billmaher
Sorry but prayers and giving your kids hugs fix nothing; only having the balls to stand up to our insane selfish gun culture will.
that is his real twitter quote
R93 made me laugh so fucking hard.
Maher is right, of course, you can add those repulsive candlelight vigils to the list, as well. How many teddy bears will be left at the gates of the school tonight?
More wisdom from Victoria Jackson -
Obama dramatically wiped a tear as he said, "The majority of those who died today were children -- beautiful little kids ... They had their entire lives ahead of them -- birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own..."
YEAH OBAMA. SAME AS THE MILLION BABIES YOU HAD ABORTED THIS YEAR.
ARE YOU CRYING FOR THEM?!
R114 is that fat has been cunt for real? Somebody ought to assassinate her!
Damn! I didn't realize Obama had that power!
Celebrities are such an enlightened and superior people, at least this is what I learned from the TV. But there are some who claim they are just attention whores...
Seriously funny, R110.
When did this happen? - Liza Minnelli
sending out so much love to the families and victims of the school shooting! Its so devastating!! #PrayForNewtown
But can you breathe, Kelly?@ R122
Rupert Murdoch's tweet gets called out by an Australian politician.
‘‘Terrible news today. When will politicians find courage to ban automatic weapons? As in Oz after similar tragedy,’’
Mr Turnbull then observed: ‘‘@rupertmurdoch I suspect they will find the courage when Fox News enthusiastically campaigns for it.’’
It really bothers me that "warm wishes", "thought", and "prayers" take up ALL the space where serious grown up debate and decisive action should be taking place.
Prayer- for people for whom doing absolutely NOTHING is still too much!
[quote] YEAH OBAMA. SAME AS THE MILLION BABIES YOU HAD ABORTED THIS YEAR.
He aborted 12,000 of my babies this year. I can't speak for the others.
R98 made me chuckle.
[quote]The Pope's too big for Twitter?
The Pope started tweeting a week ago.
