Sunday morning (June 12), the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history took place at Pulse, a gay night club in Orlando, Florida. 50 people were killed and at least 53 more were injured in the attack that has elicited an outpouring of social media response from people around the globe.
One response that is garnering a lot of attention on Facebook came from Brooks & Dunn's Ronnie Dunn who posted a note following President Obama's speech regarding the shooting.
In a press conference Sunday afternoon, President Obama called the shooting an act of terrorism.
"We know enough to say this was an act of terror and an act of hate," he said. "The FBI is appropriately investigating this as an act of terror. We will go wherever the facts lead us ... What is clear is he was a person filled with hatred."
The President, an advocate for gun control, called for stricter gun laws.
"This massacre is therefore a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, in a house of worship, or in a movie theater or in a nightclub. And we have to decide if that's the kind of country we want to be. To actively do nothing is a decision as well."
Ronnie Dunn took to Facebook to criticize the President's speech and leadership calling it "unbelievable."
But, others criticized Dunn calling him "another Republican Obama hater."
