Forty-nine people were killed and around 50 more injured early Sunday morning when gunman Omar Mateen opened fire at Orlando gay club, Pulse. The tragedy is being considered both an act of terrorism and a hate crime. On Tuesday, Osbourne showed off her new tattoo in an Instagram picture, along with an explanation about why she chose to ink “Solidarity” on her head. She noted, “Solidarity: ‘Noun. Unity of feeling of individuals with a common interest or purpose.'” The singer added, “Individually, we have rights and unique gifts. Together, we have strength and powerful harmony. I have wanted to get this tattoo for a long time.”
Osbourne went on to express ,”The tragedy in Orlando devastated me and reminded me that every moment of our lives is precious. Every human is precious. Love hard. Live gracefully, authentically and with conviction, respect, purpose and compassion.” She concluded, “Together we achieve what is impossible to those who stand alone. Those of us who embrace and respect freedom stand together, progress together, celebrate together and grieve together. You are not alone.”
Following the attack in Orlando, Osbourne attended a gay pride event in Los Angeles on Sunday to show her support for the LGBT community. During the gathering, the TV personality held up a sign that had “Orlando” written on it, as well as the phrase “fearless and proud.” Check out a larger photo below of Osbourne’s “Solidarity” head tattoo.
