James Corden Addresses Orlando Shooting in Tony Awards 2016 Opening (Video)

James Corden addresses the senseless and tragic Orlando massacre at the beginning of the 2016 Tony Awards held at the Beacon Theatre on Sunday (June 12) in New York City.

“All around the world, people are trying to come to terms with the horrific events that took place in Orlando this morning. On behalf of the whole theater community and every people in this room, our hearts go out to all of those affected by this atrocity,” James said. “All we can say is you’re not on your own right now. Your tragedy is our tragedy. Theater is a place where every race, creed, sexuality and gender is equal, is embraced, and is loved. Hate will never win. Together, we have to make sure of that. Tonight’s show stands as a symbol and celebration of that principle.”

Fifty were left dead when a shooter opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida on Saturday (June 11). It is the biggest mass shooting in American history.
