Tonight an unprecedented series of tragic events struck Paris as a string of violence left over 100 people dead. Across social media, efforts to connect the thousands affected by the attacks to their friends and family proved the effectiveness of online communication in times of crisis. Many took the opportunity to voice their opinions, too. A particularly insensitive tweet from Donald Trump in response to The Charlie Hebdo attacks resurfaced online and it appears it caught the attention of Frank Ocean. The typically silent R&B singer took to Tumblr to share a message for Trump before posting his own condolences.
ON THE REAL THOUGH DONALD TRUMP. HOW IS IT ‘INTERESTING’ THAT THESE SHOOTINGS HAPPENED IN A COUNTRY THAT’S TOUGH ON GUNS? TELL US DON? BECAUSE IT SOUNDS LIKE THAT VACUOUS OBSERVATION WAS ABOUT GIVING YOUR NRA-LOVING CONSTITUENCY A HANDJOB AND SPINNING A TRAGEDY FOR POLITICAL GAIN AND I’M THINKING MAYBE USING A SITUATION WHERE DOZENS OF INNOCENTS HAVE JUST BEEN MURDERED IN THE STREETS ISN’T THE BEST TIME. NO?
Afterwards, Frank posted his own condolences to those affected by "evil anywhere in the world."
LOVE TO PARIS AND ANY INDIVIDUAL OR FAMILY WHO’S LOST LOVED ONES TO EVIL ANYWHERE IN THIS WORLD. CHILL W THE ANGLES.
