Britney Spears pays tribute to Orlando shooting victims

Singer Britney Spears has called for unity following Sunday's (12Jun16) violent massacre at a gay club in Orlando, Florida.

Gunman Omar Mateen, 29, killed 49 people and wounded at least 53 others during a shooting spree at the city's popular Pulse nightclub, which caters to members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

Spears, who has long been heralded as a figurehead for the gay pride movement and has spoken out in support of LGBT civil rights organisations in the past, is deeply upset over the prejudicial killings and in a new post published on her Instagram account Monday (14Jun16), the star urged fans to put differences aside in favour of peace.

"I have not been able to find words to express how I feel about what happened in Orlando," she wrote in the post. "Music and dance take me to a wonderful, happy, safe place... and for this to happen in a place where people enjoy those things makes me so sad. This has to stop.

"We need to accept and love people for who they are. This is truly an attack against all of us, and I'm praying that we can join together and find a solution."

Spears' touching words appeared in a caption attached to a picture of a rainbow heart, referencing the colourful symbol of the gay pride movement.

Shortly after the Piece of Me hitmaker took to Instagram to express her heartache, gay British singer Sam Smith followed suit. Posting on social media for the first time since 29 February (16), the Stay With Me star published a rainbow image on Instagram, writing in the caption: "My heart is broken. Let people be people, let's love together. The world is with you Orlando."

Spears and Smith are among countless celebrities who have made touching tributes to the 49 victims of the brutal shooting and their families and loved ones - Lady Gaga, Queen Latifah, Ellen Page and many others have also shared their grief over the violent attack.
