JK Rowling paid tribute to one Orlando shooting victim, Luis Vielma, who had worked at Harry Potter World.
The mass shooting at gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando early Sunday morning, the worst in U.S. history (and there are many), has affected so many people and resulted in so many heartbroken friends and family. The massacre, which left 49 people dead and at least 53 more wounded, took place on Latin night at the gay club, during Orlando's Pride Week. One of the victims, a man named Luis Vielma, worked at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, running the “Forbidden Journey” ride. On Monday, JK Rowling tweeted a picture of Vielma.
Along with the picture, Rowling tweeted, "Luis Vielma worked on the Harry Potter ride at Universal. He was 22 years old. I can't stop crying."
The tweet had been retweeted over 26,000 times by Monday morning. Some people responded, saying they knew Vielma or had met him at the ride.
