Celebrities are reacting to the terrorist attack at London’s Parsons Green underground station on Friday. An explosive device hidden in a plastic bag partially detonated inside the tube carriage during rush-hour, leaving 22 people injured. Luckily, none are thought to be in a serious or life-threatening condition. See stars’ reaction tweets below.

Among those commenting on the explosion at the West London tube station is President Donald Trump, who wrote, “Another attack in London by a loser terrorist. These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!” He added, “Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!”

Trump later tweeted, “The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!” John Fugelsang responded directly to the president’s comment, saying, “So I guess this means the travel ban will now include the entire country of London.” And in response to the president using the attack to push his policies, George Takei said, “This isn’t about you, Donald.”

Meanwhile, Debra Messing offered, “Thoughts and Prayers are with the people of London. Devastating.” Minnie Driver noted, “Attacking us over and over again, speaks to the ‘threatening’ freedom our city represents. All my thoughts with #London, all my love too.” Patricia Arquette expressed, “Prayers go out to London.” Brandi Glanville said, “Just switch[ed] to the news and praying for London after yet another terrorist attack.”

Additionally, Hailey Baldwin conveyed, “Praying today for those affected in London. So scary. Hoping everyone stays safe!” And Piers Morgan stated, “When an ISIS terrorist can take a large bucket of explosives onto the London underground, it’s time to ask [Mayor Sadiq Khan] tough questions.” The shocking incident marks the fifth terrorist attack the U.K. has suffered this year. Gossip Cop will continue to update as more celebrities react to the terror attack at London’s Parsons Green tube station.
