Rapper Rick Ross, like many other Americans, was deeply affected by the tragic shooting spree that took place at a premiere showing of The Dark Knight Rises at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Speaking with 106 KMEL about the alleged killer, James Holmes, Ross offered sympathy for the victims and shared his anger at Holmes' behavior in court.
“You know, first and foremost, I send my condolences out to the family members of the victims. It’s just so senseless,” he said. “You think you’re in the movie, and as I watched him sitting in the courtroom, now he dizzy. Now he dazed. With all the pictures of him and everything that was leading up to the event, he’s smiling and this and that. Now you dazed. Don’t be dazed now. We need you to be focused when this comes down on you, because that was senseless. It’s unfortunate. Don’t be blinkin’ and all that. It could be one of his approaches to his defense, like he ain’t know what was going on. But that ain’t gon’ help you on this one.”
