Tim Cook Responds on Twitter to Orlando Mass Shooting

The deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States took place early morning in Orlando, Florida.

America got hit again by a mass shooting that was aimed at the LGBT community. Over 50 people got killed and more than 50 got injured at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The shooting at the Pulse nightclub marks the deadliest mass shooting in US history. The shooter has been killed by police after a hostage situation. Police identified the shooter as Omar Saddiqui Mateen, 29, of Fort Pierce.

The Pulse club is a hot spot for the LGBT community in Orlando. The shooter is American citizen of Afghan descent born in New York. According to media reports he hated gays and got angry seeing two men kiss. The attack was mainly a hate crime, but officials also categorizes it as a terrorist attack. The attacker's father reportedly said that his actions have nothing to do with religion.

Apple CEO Tim Cook took to Twitter to show his support. He says: "Our hearts go out to the victims of the unspeakable tragedy in #Orlando, their families and all who grieve with them."

Tim Cook is very likely addressing the Orlando shooting in his WWDC 2016 keynote tomorrow morning.

This is again a very sad day for America.
