Celebrities React to Boston Marathon Explosions

Two explosions went off at the Boston Marathon leaving at least six people injured on Monday afternoon (April 15) in Boston, Mass.

It is not yet known what the cause of the explosions were, but it is known that they went off within seconds of each other at around 2:45pm and left Boston’s Copley Square in smoke, which reached up to 50 feet high.

The marathon, in which thousands of people are participating in, was about half over and there were still people running into the finish line when the explosions went off. According to reports, some of the runners were so bloody that they had to be taken to medical tents already set up for the marathon.

“Sending prayers to everyone who was/is at the #bostonmarathon,” Lindsay Lohan tweeted after she heard the shocking news.

    Who the heck cares how celebs react to this! Seriously!!!

  • James

    Watching CNN; the stories evolved, 2 ppl dead and 28 injured.

  • danielle

    this is so sad… sending love..

  • Ava

    This is horrible and it seems “weird” that this happens on a day when it’s “patriot’s day” in boston, with alot of US history. It also doesn’t make sense that people would want to cause something like this at a marathon. There are supporters there, not people like this. I’m sure you can guess what I’m implying here…

    Anyway, I’m praying so hard right now for people to be well. Let’s not be fearful. Let’s focus and send our LOVE and compassion to the victims and everyone at Boston. They need it. Evil will not overcome, good will bc we are powerful and we will send good energy to their way. We are praying for you BOSTON!!!

  • AJ

    This is soo messed up! Prayers go out to Boston!!

  • Frozoid

    I don’t give a damn what celebrities have to say about this. If they wanted to do something, they would donate time and money to the victims’ families.

  • Yohji

    Seriously, why go through the trouble of collecting all these tweets? What are these celebrities going to do? It doesn’t add to anything.

  • joak

    that’s wonderful news!! celebrities “send” their thoughts and prayers!! as if these thoughts and prayers are going to do anything useful.. although i did kind of chuckle at Olivia Wilde’s tweet. not the usual sheep response.

  • sad

    @Frozoid: you freak Im sure many will! come on quit being so hateful.

  • Jason b

    All hopes and prayers are sent out out to boston, and the families of the injured and deceased. This may not be the best of times but make it the best. Just remember, although these are tough times, don’t put your head down. Always think positive and pray for boston…

  • Lis

    Do you realize that Brooklyn Decker just quoted someone else??? She couldn’t even type a few words of her own… and that’s news, somehow?

  • .

    @L: are you forgetting you’re on a celebrity blog? You didn’t come here for the news.

  • K

    @L – agree 100%, but this is justjared, celebrity “news”.

  • stop worshipping the celebs

    @L: Exactly what I was thinking!

    I’m really glad I have found this info. Nowadays bloggers write only about gossip and the internet and this is actually annoying. A good web site with interesting content, that’s what I need. Thanks for keeping this website updated, I will be visiting it again. Do you have a newsletter? I cant find it.
