However, Simu isn’t the only star to speak up, as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Crystal Kung Minkoff required to Instagram to reveal her unhappiness.

“I had planned to share a Happy New Year message today, but instead woke up to the news from Monterey Park, my second home,” she composedJan 22 with a picture detailing a news reporting of the shooting. “A community of almost 70% Asian; it had always been considered a safe haven for my grandparents and thousands of Chinese immigrants looking for a place to belong. We are grieving, aching, and processing with you all.”

She concluded, “We are holding space for all who have been affected by this tragic loss of life, both near and far. When our community hurts, we all hurt.”

Daniel Dae Kim likewise assessed the shooting. “On a traditional day of celebration, today it is also marked by tragedy,” he stated onInstagram “We often speak of the term ‘community.’ As important as it is to come together of times of celebration, perhaps it’s even more important to be there for each other in times of loss.”

Monterey Park Mayor Henry Lo informed NBC News that the shooter might have been targeting his ex-wife at the casino. “My understanding is that he may have come because his ex-wife was reveling, celebrating the Lunar New Year,” he stated, “and it sounded like there was a history of domestic violence, which is unfortunate.”

A vigil is prepared for Tuesday,Jan 24 in the city.
