In a time of terror and uncertainty for so many people who were affected by the suicide bombing that took place at Ariana Grande’s Manchester concert, the singer is reportedly doing what she can to make things easier for those who were affected by the tragedy.
Twenty-two people died and 59 others were injured in the attack when British national Salman Abedi allegedly detonated a bomb in the lobby of the arena where Grande played moments after her concert ended. Now, an authorized fan Twitter account for Grande is alleging she is reaching out to the families of those who were killed and offering to cover the costs of the victims’ funerals.
Publications like The Independent cannot verify these claims, however, since Grande’s team neither confirmed nor denied the claim. Considering her actions since the bombing, it doesn’t seem to be out of character for her. Soon after the tragedy, she tweeted that she was “broken,” adding, “from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have the words.”
Immediately after the bombing, Grande returned to her hometown of Boca Raton, Florida, and she’s still there. That’s making many people think she canceled the rest of her tour in the aftermath of the tragedy, but that hasn’t been confirmed, either.
Regardless of whether the tweet is correct, we hope Grande is doing something to heal after a horrific attack that she clearly feels some responsibility for, even though it wasn’t her fault. Whether that’s relaxing at home or donating money to the families of the victims, we just hope she’s able to find peace.
