Colton Underwood, Elizabeth Corrigan & More Bachelor Nation Stars Speak Out About Club Q Mass Shooting
Over the weekend, news broke that at least five people were killed and another 25 were injuring during a mass shooting at an LGBTQ+ establishment called Club Q in Colorado Springs.
The club was hosting a Drag Divas event when a man walked in with a long rifle and began firing on customers and staff.
Now, many Bachelor Nation stars are speaking out and sharing their thoughts on the horrific tragedy.
Former Bachelor Colton Underwood, who came out as gay last year, shared the news on his Story and wrote, “Sending love to everyone in Colorado Springs today. So sad.”
Bachelor Nation star Elizabeth Corrigan, who identifies as queer, tweeted her thoughts, saying, “Club Q was created to be a safe space. Another day, another mass shooting in Colorado. I can’t shake thinking about the brave person who may have gone for the very first time, so nervous and excited to be authentically themselves.”
