100,000 people in Itaewon….? Omg. It’s like a massacre. Spurs twitter posted a photo of respect as well… Thankful but this situation is just disgusting. I just wish there would have been more precautions to this… These victims went to have fun and what the actual fuck. Omg I swear if one of my cousins went .. holy shit. Omg. I’m fucking scared.
