Ben Stiller and Bette Midler were among the many Hollywood celebrities joining the nation in mourning the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting that left 8 people killed and 12 others injured on Saturday.

Amy Schumer tweeted her “heart is broken” in response to the attack.

Midler tweeted her “deepest and sincere sympathies” to the victims. She then appeared to call out President Trump, adding “if only we had LEADERSHIP that would actually take steps to stop it.”

Ben Stiller, in response to a clip of President Trump suggesting the shooting could’ve been thwarted if there was “protection inside,” tweeted “this is not the fault of the synagogue” and added a hashtag for gun control.

Here are just a few of the others speaking out:

Law enforcement identified 46-year-old Robert Bowers as the shooting suspect. Bowers targeted the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh before surrendering to police. He’s routinely posted anti-Semitic messages on Gab, a social media site often used by white supremacists.
