A long list of celebrities including Rihanna, Cardi B, and John Legend have stepped out to slam President Donald Trump for his toxic tweets that they believe inspired two crazed men to commit mass shootings over the weekend.
The El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio mass shootings left 20 and nine people dead, respectively. Rihanna shared the tweet Trump initially posted about the massacre and told him he misspelled a word and went on to obliterate him for his past actions: “Um… Donald, you spelt “terrorism” wrong! Your country had two terrorist attacks back to back, hours apart leaving almost 30 innocent people dead. This, just days after yet another terrorist attack in California, where a terrorist was able to purchase an assault rifle (AK-47) in Vegas LEGALLY, then drive hours to a food festival in Cali leaving six more people dead including a young infant baby boy!”
The singer and makeup mogul went on to say: “Imagine a world where it’s easier to get an AK-47 than a VISA!
Imagine a world where they build a wall to keep terrorists IN AMERICA!!! My prayers and deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims and the communities affected and traumatized, from Texas, California, and Ohio! I’m so sorry for your loss! Nobody deserves to die like this! NOBODY!
When we condemn the racist venom coming from the President's mouth and point out the bigotry of his policies, it's not an academic question, it's not a political game, it's about life and death. The President regularly inspires killers. He is a part of the problem

John, who is not a fan of The Donald, blamed him for the deadly U.S. mass shootings.
The singer-songwriter said this: “My heart aches for El Paso and Dayton. Our nation is experiencing these traumas far too often, and we need our leaders to take urgent action: take these weapons of war off the street and fight the evil ideology of white nationalism that motivates many of these terrorists.”
He also explained: “When we condemn the racist venom coming from the President’s mouth and point out the bigotry of his policies, it’s not an academic question, and it’s not a political game, it’s about life and death. The President regularly inspires killers. He is a part of the problem,” the singer continued.
Cardi B, a passionate supporter of Bernie Sanders, shared an Instagram picture of the El Paso shooter, Patrick Crusius, with a caption that read, “yet another homegrown domestic white supremacist terrorist.”
