Judd Apatow responded to President Trump by claiming the NRA owns him:
We can't back down no matter what. The NRA has won in the past because we always move on with our daily lives and they don't - they focus on their agenda.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) May 18, 2018
Fuck The NRA https://t.co/emxIXfjwcy
Vice President Mike Pence tweeted his condolences, pledging his own prayers and “the prayers of the American people.” Michael Ian Black responded to Pence:
The NRA owns you. You don’t take simple, logical steps to save lives because you want their money. You are an evil man. https://t.co/airgonfJto— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) May 18, 2018
Several other celebrities followed suit.
Go fuuuuuuuuuuuck yourself. https://t.co/MnbSxU6OEo— Michael Ian Black (@michaelianblack) May 18, 2018

WE CAN’T CONTINUE THIS MADNESS! WE ARE DONE!
We’re done with your—“the @NRA didn’t pull the trigger”—spin. We are done with your pity, thoughts and prayers.
You flooded America with guns.

YOU are the problem. YOUR PRAYERS are NOT the solution. https://t.co/HhHLOTBNCf— Morgan J. Freeman (@mjfree) May 18, 2018
