Former Netflix talk show host Chelsea Handler took to social media Sunday to blame Republicans for the deadly shooting at a Sutherland Springs, Texas, church that claimed the lives of at least 24 people.
The 42-year-old Chelsea host was among several celebrities to tweet about the attack as information was still being gathered, including the number of dead and the identity of the gunman.
“Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot in killed[sic],” Handler tweeted. “What country? America. Why? Republicans.”
Several other celebrities used social media to call for increased gun control measures immediately following Sunday’s attack, including author Stephen King, actor Kumail Nanjiani, and director Adam McKay.[contentcards url=”http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2017/11/05/chelsea-handler-blames-republicans-texas-church-shooting/” target=”_blank”]
