Ariana Grande's Manager Scooter Braun Speaks Out After Bombing: 'Fear Cannot Rule the Day'

Scooter Braun, the longtime manager of Ariana Grande, has taken to Twitter to speak out with his thoughts following the horrific bombing that took the lives of 22 people in Manchester, England.

Understandably, he’s spent the last few days in mourning.

“Tonight I got home and took my parents out to dinner. Korean bbq. We drank and ate and laughed with the tables next to us,” Scooter tweeted. “I experienced joy for the first time in days. And I remembered…we r free. We are all different but we r free to enjoy each other’s company.”

“I will honor those that r lost by living each day full. Full of fun, full of laughter, full of joy. I welcome the differences of my neighbor,” he continued. “The wish of terrorism is to take away that feeling of freedom and joy. No. That is my answer. No. We cant allow it. Fear cannot rule the day. More people die each year from car crashes then terrorism. Yet I will get in my car. I will choose to live then to be afraid. So…”

“Manchester I stand with you. Jakarta I stand with u..children of Syria I stand with you. We will honor you by not giving in to the darkness,” Scooter wrote. “And I will honor all of u by laughing loving and living. Living full for every wonderful innocent child whose life was taken to soon.”

Some fans on social media are urging Scooter to cancel Justin Bieber‘s upcoming U.K. shows (he also manages Justin), but he wrote, “not going to happen. We will never let evil stop us from living our life wih joy.”

Scooter previously released a statement right after the attack.
