On Monday, a student was shot and critically injured at Widener University in Pennsylvania. On Tuesday, a student at Purdue University was shot and killed. On Friday, a South Carolina State University student was shot and killed. And just today (January 25), a mall shooting resulted in the death of three, including the gunman.
Is anyone else really sad about the constant stream of shootings and how normal it's becoming to see these headlines on a weekly basis? 😔— Katy Perry (@katyperry) January 25, 2014
Scared to go to school? Scared to go to the mall? Scared to go to the movies? Me too. When will there be ACTUAL change? How many more?!— Katy Perry (@katyperry) January 25, 2014
The Prism singer went on to say that the gun violence is "embarrassing," calling for change
You and I both know this is getting embarrassing...My heart goes out to ALL the victims & their families this week. I pray for change.— Katy Perry (@katyperry) January 25, 2014
Katy's Twitter spill comes one day before the 2014 Grammys, where the singer is up for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for "Roar." She is scheduled for the red carpet and festivities, and may very well comment on the string of shootings again.
