Mariah Carey, a celebrated diva, appeared on the TV show via a live feed from her Beverly Hills home. She was stretched across a lounge chair wearing a red dress as Piers Morgan asked her what she thought about the attack, despite her knowing very little about what had happened. “You’ve played in Vegas many times,” Morgan said, “You know that at this time of night that it would be a massively busy. What is your reaction just on a human level to concert goers being targeted in this way?”
“I mean it is what everyone’s gut reaction is… I pray for the victims, have they caught the shooter?Whilst there’s no denying that Mariah’s reaction to the tragedy was sincere, viewers of Good Morning Britain took to Twitter to express their outrage that she had even been asked about the incident. It appeared that she was hearing about the shooting for the first time from Piers Morgan. Mariah’s appearance in such a relaxed position with a Christmas tree in the background was deemed wildly inappropriate. Whilst police have confirmed that only one gunman was involved in the incident, witnesses are convinced that the volume of bullets being fired upon the crowd was too great for it to have only been one shooter. One witness explained: “We were at the furthest stages away from Mandalay Bay, and they [the bullets] were ricocheting everywhere where we were so … they were firing from somewhere high, and they were unloading clip after clip after clip after clip.” “Multiple shooters,” he said, “It has to be. There were obviously people hit.” As details of this shocking incident continue to emerge, we wish all the best to those affected.
“Wow, that’s awful. Again I pray for the victims and hope all these can stop as soon as possible. You know I have spent a lot of time in Vegas and this type of thing anywhere happening anywhere is a huge tragedy.
“I continue to pray for the victims. I hope we have an end to this as soon as possible.”
