At around 2AM EST on June 12th, a gunman killed 50 and injured 53 at a gay bar in Orlando, Florida, USA. The incident is the largest mass shooting in USA up to date, and Korean celebrities shared their condolences with the victims on their SNS.
G-Dragon originally had a video uploaded on his Instagram for the victims. However, he's now deleted the post, apparently due to backlash that he was supporting the LGBTQ community.
