Jared Leto Honors Paris Attacks Victims at AMAs 2015 (Video)

Jared Leto makes a speech on stage at the 2015 American Music Awards held at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday (November 22) in Los Angeles.

The 43-year-old actor paid tribute to the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks and talked about his band Thirty Seconds to Mars had recently played at the Bataclan, where the most deadly shooting happened.

“Earlier this year, my band was wrapping up a tour in Europe and we were looking for a good excuse to stop off in one of our favorite cities in the world, Paris. We played an impromptu show in a place called The Bataclan. It was beautiful, peaceful, and unforgettable,” Jared said. “What a difference a day makes. Seven months later, on the evening of November 13th, 2015, that same venue was under siege.”

“One of a series of terrorist attacks on Paris that changed the world forever. 129 innocent people died and another seven billion will forever be scarred by this horrific and senseless tragedy,” Jared continued.

“Tonight, we honor the victims of the unimaginable violence that has taken place in Paris and around the world,” he concluded the speech, which you can watch in full below. “France matters. Russia matters, Syria matters, Mali matters, the United States matters. The entire world matters and peace is possible.”

Jared then introduced an emotional performance delivered by Celine Dion.

    His speech made me cry. Not just for those in Paris who died, but for all who die at the hands of hate-filled terrorists. It made me cry because of the ignorance my fellow countrymen have towards those who are different and seem to equal Muslim & Islam with terrorism. It made me cry because I’m angry at the world for turning its back on people fleeing war and terror, for little children drowning and washing ashore, for newborns born in tents near borders to parents the world wants to shut their eyes to and not deal with it.

    There needs to be more discussing, more stories, but I’m not going to fault Jared or the AMAs, because the discussion has to start somewhere and it is up to the rest of us to keep it going and adding to it by talking more about it, by confronting the news for not talking enough about it and by condemning politicians who perpetuate fear and ignorance for votes.

    War, countries, boundaries, cultures tend to be about hypocricy as there is an “us” and “them” for people of the same biological make up as we are, which would tend to favor feelings for those nearest to us. You might say that even Family can have similar hypocricy for don’t we tend to care more if something happens to a loved one in our Family than in someone elses?

    Can you say you are any different in that? Would you not do more to celebrate the birth of your own child than the child of someone else?

    Regardless should we fault someone for tributing just one side and not another rather than be glad a tribute and care for victims is done? I think its wonderful they make such tributes, but would gladly support a tribute to Syrian victims too if you were to arrange making one.

    I for one think it was a good speech and a nice touch.

    what you wrote was just a bunch of rants to justify the hypocrisy of someone else. the Americans and Europeans have done for many years the same than ISIS and now pretend to be lovers of world peace.

    as people say in my country “which kills iron to iron dies”
