Chelsea Handler Immediately Says Texas Church Shooting Happened Because Of 'Republicans'

Chelsea Handler immediately responded to news about the Texas church shooting by saying that it happened because of 'republicans.'

Sutherland Springs Texas - An estimated 27 people have been murdered with 30 more wounded at a church shooting in Sutherland Springs.

Within hours of the shooting, Chelsea Handler took to Twitter to say that the shooting happened because of "republicans."

On Twitter she wrote, "Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot in killed. What country? America. Why? Republicans."

The post was made before any details about the suspect were released and while the bodies of the victims were still warm.

What we know now is that the gunman who opened fire in a Texas church on Sunday is dead following a pursuit by police, according to Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office.

No official word has been released if the gunman was killed by police or he killed himself.

KGW is reporting that the police killed the suspect, but their source isn't clear at this time.

CNN reports that 27 people were murdered, including children, after the shooter entered First Baptist Church on Sunday and opened fire at around 11:30 am. An estimated 30 additional people have been wounded.

The First Baptist Church records their services and it's likely that the shooting was captured on video.

"My heart is broken," Wilson County Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr. told CNN. "We never think where it can happen, and it does happen. It doesn't matter where you're at. In a small community, real quiet and everything, and look at this, what can happen."

This woman is out of her mind. Instead having sympathy for the dead, the injured, and families involved she has to politicize this tragedy.

Totally callous and selfish actions by Chelsea Handler.. used for political means at the worst possible time. Let the people affected, process and grieve, before promoting your nasty political campaign, of a false agenda, at the very least....😕
