The Metal Community Reacts to Orlando Club Shooting


In case you didn’t get out of bed yesterday, a gunman killed 50 people and injured 53 more at an Orlando gay club named Pulse. The shooter, Omar Mateen, called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS before entering the club with an assault rifle and pistol and opening fire. Islamic State has since claimed responsibility for the attack, though US officials have said there is currently no direct link between ISIS and Mateen.

Now, members of the metal community have posted their reactions to this tragedy on social media. Below are some of those posts.
