Celebrities have taken to social media to show support for those affected by Wednesday night's shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, in which nine black worshippers were killed.

Singer John Legend wrote "Charleston. My heart hurts."

Solange Knowles added "Was already weary. Was already heavy hearted. Was already tired. Where can we be safe? Where can we be free? Where can we be black?"

Zendaya said "I have no words...all I can say is to all the families and friends who lost someone, Charleston my heart goes out to you..."

Michelle Williams used her 140 characters to ask for prayers for Charleston and reminded her followers that, though the accused is captured, the bigger issue of racism will have to be explored.
