J.K. Rowling Mourns Orlando Shooting Victim Luis Vielma

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling just took to Twitter to mourn the victims of the senseless Orlando shooting on Saturday (June 11), and one of the fifty victims holds a place close to her heart.

“Luis Vielma worked on the Harry Potter ride at Universal. He was 22 years old. I can’t stop crying. #Orlando,” J.K. wrote on her Twitter account, along with a photo of Luis in a Harry Potter uniform.

“He was a true friend,” Olga Glomba, who worked with Luis at Universal, told the Orlando Sentinel. “A funny, sweet, nerdy guy without a mean side. He just wanted to make people smile.”

Our thoughts are with everyone effected by this horrible tragedy.
