Hundreds of people were evacuated from Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday after a gunman opened fire. Even more were stranded while a ground stop was implemented at LAX. Therefore, it's easy to understand that with the frequency that celebrities fly in and out of the airport, some of them would be affected by the tragedy. Many of them tweeted from the scene.
James Franco Instagrammed a photo along with the caption "#Lax - terminal, empty; police, patrolling; people, waiting - peace and love,"
The actor also Instagrammed a video saying, "#lax - WE'RE OUT! - everyone was calm."

How I Met Your Mother co-creator Craig Thomas was in Terminal 3 when the shooting occurred.
I was at LAX Terminal 3 this morning, waiting to fly to New York - I had to run for my life, with many others...— Craig Thomas (@HimymCraig) November 1, 2013
He then began to talk about gun control and started a Twitter conversation with both pro-gun and anti-gun supporters. But in the end, he was just thankful he was safe and was looking forward to seeing his family.
Thank you all - hoping tomorrow to "meet the mother"...of my son...in New York...with no guns involved. Thanks for the support. #HIMYM— Craig Thomas (@HimymCraig) November 2, 2013
He told Extra, "I heard a loud bang and then heard maybe a dozen or more. Luckily there were no stray bullets going through the wall I was leaning against."
"I saw an assault rifle... and three clips and some blood," Daly added. "I'm ultimately really glad I did not see what happened and I was out of harm's way."
This isn't the first time celebs have taken to social media to talk about tragedy, and it certainly won't be the last.
One person was killed in the shooting, and others were injured. Police say they have the shooter in custody.
