"I don't like getting political but America you really have to follow Australia's example re gun laws,” Wilson tweeted on Friday.

The 35-year-old actress continued, "I don't remember a mass shooting in Australia since they overhauled the gun laws. It seems like every week in America there's a shooting.”

"I just want people to be safe, especially people that are doing one of my favorite things in the WORLD - going out to the movies 2 have fun.”

Wilson isn’t the only celeb speaking out and showing support.

Amy Schumer, who stars in Trainwreck, tweeted her sorrow and condolences after the news of the shooting broke.

"My heart is broken and all my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Louisiana," Schumer wrote. 

Trainwreck’s director Judd Apatow told Entertainment Weekly that the shooting “devastates” him.

"One of the reasons we make these movies is because the world can be so horrifying and we all need to laugh just to deal with it,” Apatow explained to EW. "So to have this happen in a room where people were smiling and laughing devastates me.” 

“My thoughts and love go out to the victims and anyone touched by this madness or any madness. We, as a country, need to find a way to do better.”
