The world is mourning the loss of 19 children and 2 teachers who were killed yesterday after a gunman opened fire at an elementary school in Uvalde, TX. This marks the second deadliest school since the Sandy Hook mass shooting in 2012.  We at Dish Nation join Uvalde-native Matthew McConaughy, LeBron James, Viola Davis, Taylor Swift, and more, in sending condolences and calling for change.

Matthew, whose hometown is Uvalde, took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the senseless mass shooting—urging every American to take action toward a “healthier and safer nation.”

“The true call to action is now for every American to take a longer and deeper look in the mirror, and ask ourselves, ‘What is it that we truly value? How do we repeat the problem? What small sacrifices can we individually take today, to pressure a healthier and safer nation, state, and neighborhood tomorrow?’ We cannot exhale once again, make excuses, and accept these tragic realities as the status quo.”

LeBron James tweeted about the tragedy and called out politicians for putting kids in “harm’s way.”



Like many of us, Taylor Swift shared Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr’s passionate speech about the school shooting and said she was “broken” by the deaths in Uvalde.


Missy Elliott sent love and light amid these “trying times” and prayed that some peace would be restored after the devastation in Uvalde.


Viola Davis had “no words” following the tragedy, but called it a “human crisis” and said sending condolences at this point is “reductive and insulting.”

Becky G said “enough is enough” while Gabrielle Union stressed that it’s “been enough” for centuries.


Our hearts are broken over the texas school mass shooting and we continue to pray and uplift the families and friends of those whose lives were lost, and the entire Uvalde community.
