The Orange Is The New Black star broke down while talking about the atrocious attack at the Florida gay club at the Netflix premiere on Thursday, explaining that places like Pulse are where people in the LGBT community go to feel safe:

You go there, and you're with your friends, and you dance until all hours of the morning. It's where we have community. It's where we have our culture. It's where we feel safe."

This f*ckin' guy…

As the country continues to deal with the largest mass shooting in American history, the Republican and Democratic parties are still trying to pit this act of violence against one another.
