Ellen DeGeneres, Adam Lambert, Charlie Carver & other celebs reach out after Manchester bombing
The explosion after a Ariana Grande concert in Manchester yesterday sent many LGBT celebrities to social media to express their shock and condolences.
There have been 22 people confirmed dead and more than 50 others injured in the horrific incident that is being investigated as a terrorist attack.
Arrow and Torchwood star John Barrowman shared his thoughts via Instagram video as he watched the news unfold on television.
‘It’s horrible,’ Barrowman said.
‘My thoughts are with everyone in Manchester … I just want to say we’re all thinking about you.’
Lance Bass thought about all of the young fans who were at Manchester Arena and wrote: ‘My heart aches for the victims and their families in England tonight. I can’t fathom how anyone can hurt innocent children.’
Teen Wolf and Desperate Housewives alum Charlie Carver is broken-hearted about it all and had this to say: ‘No matter how barbarous hate and violence can be, love will win.’
Just woken up and seen the news. My heart and soul is broken for every single victim, and their families and friends. So painfully sad x

So heartbroken hearing about Manchester. Such a senseless and ruthless act in a place supposed to be filled with such joy and love.
