How Celebrities feel about Ariana Grande’s Concert and the Manchester Arena explosion; 8-year-old Girl identified as a victim

Ariana Grande’s Manchester Arena concert was disrupted by bomb explosions which reportedly killed 22 and injured over 50 persons, and celebrities aren’t smiling about the wickedness meted on innocent souls.

Concertgoers who gathered at the location to have fun were mostly teenagers, children and parents who love music.

An 8-year-old named Saffie Rose Roussos has been identified as one of the bomb blast victims. She was studying at Tarleton Primary school before her departure to the world beyond, media reports confirm.

Why is it that ISIS can’t see music as the food of love?

Although the terror group have taken responsibility for the callous act, Saffie would have wished those godforsaken religious fanatics didn’t suffer melophobia.

Headteacher Chris Upton said, “Saffie was simply a beautiful little girl in every aspect of the word. She was loved by everyone.”

There are speculations that ISIS may have no hand in the attack even though there are links — based on previous threats. And America’s Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, said there’s no proof yet on how the terror group was involved.

“So it once again reminds us that this threat is real, it is not going away, and needs significant attention to do everything we can to protect our people from these kinds of attacks,” Dan Coats said in a statement before the Senate Armed Services Committee today 23 May, 2017.

“Initial reports that we have received are that this was indeed a suicide attack,” Coats continued.

“Whether there were others implicated in that is under assessment.

“I might mention that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack in Manchester,” Coats said.

“Although they claim responsibility for virtually every attack. We have not verified yet the connection.”

The suspect who was born in Manchester, goes by the name Ramadan Abedi. He used a a homemade explosive device filled with nuts, shrapnel and bolts, the media reports.

US singer Ariana Grande had just ended her performance before the explosions went off.

Thousands of young fans and families were affected by the attack which prompted the 23-year-old musician to tweet, “broken. from the bottom of my heart, [I] am so so sorry. [I] don’t have words,” after she was lifted to a safe place.
