President Donald Trump has reached out and offered aid after a deadly shooting was streamed on Facebook and left 49 dead.
Trump tweeted out his sympathies while offering aid to New Zealand where a chilling attack occurred between two mosques located in Christchurch.
“Good Morning America” hosted Christchurch MP Gerry Brownlee who spoke on the matter. “It’s something that we never expected to have happen here,” he said adding, “we’re a relatively small population, and while we are ethnically quite diverse, we live very peaceable lives. And this, as many have seen, has shattered our innocence.”
The shooting, which was streamed live over Facebook, has been labeled a terrorist attack.
Facebook made a statement on Twitter saying they were removing all posts of the content as they found them.
“Police alerted us to a video on Facebook shortly after the livestream commenced and we quickly removed both the shooter’s Facebook and Instagram accounts and the video,” Facebook shared.
“We’re also removing any praise or support for the crime and the shooter or shooters as soon as we’re aware.”
