Ariana Grande and other celebrities have taken to Twitter to respond to the bomb attack at the Manchester Arena in the United Kingdom. The American singing sensation was not hurt in the blast, but tweeted that she was “broken” by news of casualties.
22 people were killed, and more than 50 were wounded after there was an explosion around the foyer area which left thousands of people screaming and running from the venue. Grande’s European tour is currently suspended as the singer was scheduled to leave for Poland, Germany, and Belgium as well.
