Heartbroken over Anthony Bourdain. He was a kind person. This world doesn’t make sense today.— Emmy Rossum (@emmyrossum) June 8, 2018
This news week is just the worst. The loss. The image these poor people will never be able to erase. The children left behind. The significant others who cared and loved, yet the response is “check on/take care of people.” It’s all a sad, painful mess. I haaaate this. 💔— neisha (@pixzdst) June 8, 2018
