Adams’ comments come after 49 people were gunned down and killed and many more injured at two mosques during Friday prayers.

The singer is just one of thousands of people leaving comments online about the incident, which has been dubbed a terrorist attack by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

Prince William and Kate Middleton also released a statement via Kensington Palace.

Their message included, “We have all been fortunate to spend time in Christchurch and have felt the warm, open-hearted and generous spirit that is core to its remarkable people.

“No person should ever have to fear attending a sacred place of worship.”

Other celebs are taking to social media to speak out about the horrific massacre, including New Zealanders Taika Waititi, Russell Crowe and Sam Neill.

New Zealand born “Lord of the Rings” director Peter Jackson issued a statement to Variety. “New Zealanders are devastated,” he said. “Our hearts go out to all those who have been harmed by this cowardly act of hate. Kiwis stand united in our love and support for our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters. We will do whatever we can to help them heal and rise above this terrible tragedy.”
