Taylor Swift Reacts To Texas School Massacre

Following yesterday’s travesty in Texas that left at least 18 school children dead in Uvalde, Texas, Taylor Swift has spoken out about the “unfathomable” massacre.

Breaking her self-imposed months-long Twitter hiatus, the superstar singer/songwriter shared an impassioned video from Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, whose basketball team prepared to play at the home arena of Dallas Mavericks, several hundred miles from the scene of the mass shooting.

Filled with rage and grief, and so broken by the murders in Uvalde. By Buffalo, Laguna Woods and so many others,” writes Taylor. “By the ways in which we, as a nation, have become conditioned to unfathomable and unbearable heartbreak. Steve’s words ring so true and cut so deep.”

Speaking ahead of game 4 of the NBA Western Conference Finals, Kerr refused to talk about his sport. Opting instead to deliver an impassioned plea for gun control, he said, holding back tears:

“When are we going to do something? I’m tired. I’m so tired of getting up here and offering condolences to the devastated families that are out there. I’m so tired. Excuse me. I’m sorry. I’m tired of the moments of silence. Enough.” “There’s 50 senators right now who refuse to vote on HR8, which is a background check rule that the House passed a couple years ago. It’s been sitting there for two years. And there’s a reason they won’t vote on it, to hold onto power.”

Having won multiple titles as an athlete with Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs, before leading the Warriors’ dynasty, Kerr is a vocal campaigner for gun control.

“Are you going to put your own desire for power ahead of the lives of our children and our elderly and our churchgoers,” he added, calling out the nation’s unmoved senators. “Because that’s what it looks like. It’s what we do every week.”

According to multiple reports, at least 18 children and 2 adults died when a man opened fire Tuesday (May 24) at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. The shooter was killed on the premises.
