Nice, France attack – Hollywood reacts to the France Truck Attack.
A truck drove onto the sidewalk and killed over 80 men, women and children, who were gathered there to watch fireworks in the French resort of Nice, France.
Eyewitnesses called it a deliberate attack to hurt and kill innocent people. At least 84 people are dead and reports count at least 100 others who have been injured in the attack.
The president of the region told French network BFM TV that “the driver fired on the crowd, according to the police who killed him.” Estrosi said the truck was driven by someone who appeared to have “completely premeditated behavior.” He added that “the truck was loaded with arms, loaded with grenades.”
Following the terrorist attack, Hollywood celebrities took to Twitter to share their thoughts and prayers for the people in France.
