Actors, entertainers and athletes joined millions of Americans on social media to convey their horror and anger regarding the three mass murders that took place within a week of each other, including two within 24 hours this past weekend.

As most recall, a racist gunman fatally shot three people and injured 15 others at the Gilroy Garlic Festival near San Francisco on July 28, 2019. And then, within 15 hours of each other, gunmen killed 29 people and shot dozens of others in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, on Saturday, Aug. 3, and early Sunday morning, Aug 4.

Moreover, celebrities are articulating their exasperation and fear for a nation that is being besieged by homegrown terrorists, most often of the White supremacist variety, and because no public place seems to be safe anymore.

The likes of rapper T.I., musical genius John Legend, pop goddess Rihanna, actress Reese Witherspoon and other celebrities took to Twitter and Instagram to mourn for the families of the victims. Many also demanded more action be taken by the White House to reduce the frequency of such national catastrophes.

Check out what these celebs and others had to say to the victims, the country and to the current administration:
