Taylor Swift 'filled with anger and sadness' after assassination

Are consequences finally being drawn after the series of attacks in the USA? Taylor Swift shared a basketball master’s coach’s stirring appeal.

Los Angeles – The US pop singer Taylor Swift (32) addressed her fans with emotional words after the school massacre in Texas.

“I am filled with anger and sadness and so broken by the murders in Uvalde. Through Buffalo, Laguna Woods and so many others. By the way we as a nation have been conditioned to unbelievable and unbearable grief,” the superstar wrote on Twitter.

Swift also shared a video of Golden State Warriors basketball master coach Steve Kerr. At a press conference before the playoff game at the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday evening, he called for stricter gun controls in the USA in an emotional outburst. The 56-year-old spoke directly to 50 senators who have so far prevented stricter weapons requirements. Kerr’s words are true “and they cut so deep,” Swift wrote.
