A series of attacks in London on Saturday night have left celebrities and the public in shock, one day before Ariana Grande’s Manchester benefit concert.
London Bridge was closed down after a white van drove onto the sidewalk and mowed over five pedestrians, resulting in four severe injuries and one fatality — according to BBC. Around the same time, police responded to reports of stabbings at Borough Market and a third incident in Vauxhall.
Prime Minister Theresa May said the authorities were treating the attacks “as a potential act of terrorism,” per the New York Times.
Celebrities from all corners of entertainment are reacting to the sad news with messages of distress, peace and encouragement.
