On October 1 for reasons unbeknownst to us, Stephen Paddock killed 59 people and injured over 570 during an outside concert in Las Vegas, Nevada near the Mandalay Bay hotel. Through a broken window in his hotel room, the 64-year-old buried hundreds of bullets into an unsuspecting crowd of 22,000 concertgoers during the Route 91 Harvest festival.

This is the worst mass shooting we have seen in U.S. history; it was planned ahead of time; this was definitely an act of terrorism. Stephen Paddock is a domestic terrorist.

But to no one’ surprise because Paddock is white (and not Muslim), the media has been reluctant to call him just that—instead he as been described as a “lone gunman” and given headlines empathetic headlines.

But these 10 celebs refuse to play that game and have no issue calling a spade a spade.
