The singer-actress made the plea in an Instagram posting on Friday night, with an image that reads “It’s About Humanity.”
Gomez wrote, “Please pray for those families and babies today. Please always remember what’s important in life.”
“It’s not any of this,” continued the singer, who earlier had been posting about her press appearance in Italy. “We are here to help, inspire and love. Be that change.”
She concluded with the hashtag, “#wearethenextgeneration.”
After some backlash, Gomez clarified, “And of course to be clear, I am not picking any sides. I am praying for peace and humanity for all!”
