On Monday, tragedy struck the annual Boston Marathon as there were two explosions near the 26.2 mile race’s finish line. Reports surfaced that upwards of 50 people were injured, with “multiple casualties.” Also, reports were swirling that some individuals even lost limbs due to the as-yet-unexplained explosions.
While there aren’t many details known as to what exactly was the cause of the horrific explosions, a statement was released on the Boston Marathon’s Facebook page that read, “There were two bombs that exploded near the finish line in today’s Boston Marathon. We are working with law enforcement to understand what exactly has happened.”
Celebrities immediately went to Twitter to react to the horrible situation. See what stars like Lucy Hale, Chloe Moretz, and more had to say below.
