Amy Schumer, Ellen DeGeneres and More Mourn Deadly Synagogue Shooting: ‘My Heart Is Broken’

As news continues to surface about the Pittsburg synagogue shooting that has left 11 people dead and six injured, celebrities are mourning the loss of life and offering their condolences.

The shooting took place at the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill section of the city, the Pittsburgh Public Safety Department announced on Twitter. The department added that it will be prosecuted as a hate crime and the FBI will be leading the investigation.

No children were injured in the shooting, Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich announced at a press conference.

A law enforcement official confirmed to PEOPLE the suspect is Robert Bowers, 46. Police sources told KDKA the shooter yelled, “All Jews must die” after entering the synagogue during the Saturday morning Shabbat service.

“My heart is broken for the victims and loved ones of everyone affected by the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh,” wrote comedian Amy Schumer, who recently announced she’s pregnant with her first child.

Actor Joe Manganiello, who was born nearby in Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania, added, “My thoughts are back home today with the people of Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh.”

Without specifically mentioning the tragic shooting, television host Ellen DeGeneres made a call for everyone, no matter their political differences, to support one another.

“Today, I send out love to each and every one of you reading this. Every single one of you. We are one world. We all need love. We all want comfort. Let’s give it to each other,” she wrote.

In addition to honoring those who had lost their lives, some celebrities also spoke out against President Donald Trump.

When asked by reporters on Saturday morning whether the shooting should make lawmakers across the county want to revisit existing gun safety laws, Trump replied that the tragedy had “little to do with it,” CNN reported.

He went on to argue, “If there was an armed guard inside the temple, they would have been able to stop him.”

Vehemently disagreeing, former One Direction member Niall Horan argued that the better solution would be for there to be “no guns at all.”

“Trump kept saying in his chat with reporters that if there was an armed guard inside the synagogue that the ‘numbers’ would have been a lot lower. The fact is if there was no guns at all, there wouldn’t have been a shooter in the first place,” he wrote. “Get a grip.”

Outspoken Trump critic Bette Midler wrote: “To the families of those who died in the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, my deepest and sincere sympathies. This horror is escalating day by day. If only we had LEADERSHIP that would actually take steps to stop it.”

Other celebrities also urged people who were upset by gun violence to remember to vote in the upcoming mid-term elections, in order to increase the likelihood that politicians who want stricter gun safety laws get elected.

“Sending love to every single one of you who feels targeted by this administration. i’m with you. VOTE NOVEMBER 6TH,” wrote actress Zoe Kazan.

“The guns are the long arm of this racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, anti-LGBT administration. the laws & judges being put in place are the longest arm. vote. them. Out,” she added in a separate tweet.

This Is Us star Mandy Moore also urged anybody “feeling helpless and frustrated by this news” to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

“My heart goes out to all those affected by gun violence today and every day. Feeling helpless and frustrated by this news too? VOTE Nov 6th. VOTE. Use your voice,” she wrote, including #GunSenseCandidates.

Trump has condemned the shooting as an act of anti-Semitism.

The suspect was taken into custody after surrendering to police, according to the Associated Press. City Councilwoman Erika Strassburger said the suspect was barricaded by police in the building prior to surrendering and that he was taken to the hospital, the New York Times reported.

The Pittsburgh Public Safety Department tweeted, “Families of shooting victims can call 412-432-4400 for news of their loved ones. A Victims Assistance Center has been set up at Chatham University, Berry Hall, 106 Berry Street.”

During a visit to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Kristen Wiig shocked us. She — and DeGeneres! — claimed not to know the words to “Let It Go,” but since they’re both humans with ears, we find that hard to believe. DeGeneres suggested they try to sing the hit from Disney’s “Frozen.” Thus began our favorite celebrity karaoke session of the week. Bonus points to Wiig for dropping this knowledge: “Kids don’t know what fractals are.”

Daytime Emmy Awards Honor Steve Harvey, Ellen DeGeneres And ‘The Young And The Restless’

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ellen DeGeneres, Steve Harvey and the soap opera “The Young and the Restless” were among the 41st annual Daytime Emmy winners.

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” received its eighth trophy as outstanding entertainment talk show at the awards ceremony Sunday in Beverly Hills. The “Steve Harvey” show was honored as outstanding informative talk show, while Harvey won as best game show host for “Family Feud.”

CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” captured six awards, including honors for best drama series and best lead actor for star Billy Miller. Eileen Davidson of NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” was named best drama series actress.

ABC’s “Good Morning America” won the best morning program Emmy.

The Daytime Emmys introduced new awards for Spanish-language shows. Trophies went to Telemundo’s “Un Nuevo Dia” as best morning program, to CNNE’s “Clix” as best entertainment show and to Rodner Figueroa of Univision’s “El Gordo y la Flaca” as best daytime talent in Spanish.

CBS, which received eight creative arts Daytime Emmys for technical achievements at a ceremony last week, emerged as the network leader with a total of 14 awards after Sunday’s ceremony.

PBS received a combined 13 awards, with six for HUB Network; five for TOLN.com; four for ABC and three for NBC.

The ceremony, which aired on the cable news channel HLN last year and in 2012 after losing its longtime home on the broadcast networks, this year settled for streaming the proceedings online. The change in fortune reflects the dwindling daytime audience and programming shifts.

Ellen DeGeneres Gives Heartfelt Farewell To Jay Leno On ‘The Tonight Show’ (VIDEO)

While Jay Leno isn’t set to exit “The Tonight Show” until next year, Ellen DeGeneres said her goodbyes on Wednesday night. After 32 prior appearances, this was going to be her final interview on Leno’s show before he leaves, and so she wanted to talk about what an impact he’s had on her life.

“You were so supportive all the time,” an emotional DeGeneres told him. “You always tried to help me in every way. Gave me great advice, gave me ideas with jokes and, actually, Jay is responsible for me being booked on ‘The Tonight Show’ with Johnny Carson, because you told the booker, Jim McCawley, to stay at The Improv and watch me. You said, ‘This girl’s great … so thank you very much for everything you’ve done. You’re amazing. You’re a good guy.”

She then presented Leno with a going away gift — a denim Snuggie. DeGeneres said that it combined his every day outfit of denim-on-denim with his new, retired lifestyle. She then ended her inteview with a kiss. It was a callback to when she came on “The Tonight Show” shortly after coming out publicly back in 1997 and planted a kiss on the host to prove that a kiss was just a kiss.

Of course, this may not be the last time the two get together. We’re pretty sure the door is open for Jay Leno to drop by “The Ellen Degeneres Show,” weekdays in syndication (check local listings). For now, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” continues on weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
