Los Angeles | Pop star Taylor Swift has penned a touching note sending her love and sympathies to the families of those killed in the Orlando shooting massacre on Sunday. In what has become the deadliest mass shooting in American history, 49 people were killed and more than 50 others were injured after a gunman opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida.
On Friday, funerals for the victims began as their loved ones said their final goodbyes and Swift took time to acknowledge the difficult process via a heartfelt message on Instagram. A snap posted on Friday featured a handwritten note which began with, To the families of…, and finished with the 49 names of those who perished in the massacre.
She added the caption, As you bury your loved ones this week, please know that there are millions of us sending you love and our deepest sympathy in the face of this unthinkable and devastating tragedy. Swift posted the same photo on Twitter, and also wrote, With heavy heart.
The emotional post comes after the Blank Space singer had a different kind of heartbreak of her own, as she recently split with her boyfriend of over a year, DJ Calvin Harris.
On Thursday, however, the 26-year-old hitmaker was photographed locking lips with actor Tom Hiddleston on a beach near her Rhode Island home. The two later enjoyed a date night and took off in Swift’s private jet to New York City on Friday.
