Ariana Grande has spoken out in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting that claimed 58 lives and injured over 500 people Sunday night. 

Grande — whose May 2017 performance in Manchester, England, was devastated by a terrorist bomb explosion that killed 22 people and injured dozens more — tweeted a plea for “love, unity, peace” and “gun control” on Monday. 

The 24-year-old singer called for “people to look at this & call this what it is = terrorism.”

In June, two weeks after the Manchester attack, Grande returned to Manchester Arena to host a benefit concert honouring the families of the attack’s victims.

She now joins the chorus of celebrities mourning the Las Vegas attack, and echoes a number of prominent voices that have called for stricter gun control regulations in its aftermath.
