Celebrities React To Connecticut Shooting Tragedy On Twitter

As i scrolled through my Twitter feed today, it truly seemed like everything else was put on hold, and LITERALLY everyone was talking about the Connecticut elementary school shooting incident. In addition to the numerous news and media Twitter pages I follow, I saw brands, athletes and celebrities sincerely weighing in on the tragedy. What it showed me is that beneath their fame and superstardom, celebrities really are just people. People with hearts, just like you and me.
