So, so sad.

Speaking to reporters, Apatow said:
"One of the reasons we make these movies is because the world can be so horrifying and we all need to laugh just to deal with it. So to have this happen in a room where people were smiling and laughing devastates me. My thoughts and love go out to the victims and anyone touched by this madness or any madness. We, as a country, need to find a way to do better."
Obviously, police are continuing to work on the case as we learn more about the gunman's past history, and celebrities from all circles have come together in reaction to these horrific crimes.
Our thoughts continue to be with those families, friends, and loved ones in Lafayette, Louisiana.
