“On June 12, 2016 a gunmen killed 49 people and injured 53 others inside Pulse, an LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando, Florida on Latin night,” the words on-screen said. “It was both the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman and the deadliest incident of violence against LGBTQ people in U.S. History. The victims live on in our memories.”

One of the stars, Jamie Lee Curtis talked about the attack and gun violence, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“I’m an old Gandhi fan, and his entreatment to people to be the change that you want to see in the world is the real way to do it,” Curtis said. “It’s grassroots. It’s feet on pavement. It’s knocking on doors.”

“It’s marching,” she added. “That will come. We’re in the middle of an election year that’s so wildly polarized.”

“Trying to find some common link as humanity in this country right now feels difficult with the rhetoric coming out of the Republican Party, but I certainly hope a movement will come where we will all join together and say this is not OK,” she continued.
