'To Have This Happen In A Room Where People Were Smiling & Laughing Devastates Me' — Judd Apatow Speaks About The Louisiana Theater Shooting
So, so sad.
Trainwreck director Judd Apatow has just weighed in with a statement released Friday afternoon on the Louisiana theater shooting that has claimed two lives in addition the shooter's, and injured nine others.
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."
Our thoughts continue to be with those families, friends, and loved ones in Lafayette, Louisiana.
