The mass shooting at gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando, Florida on Sunday morning killed 50 and wounded at least another 53. The lone gunman, who pledged allegiance to ISIS, was shot and killed by Orlando police after what has now become the deadliest mass shooting in the United States.

The Tony Awards, held on Sunday night, led the nation in solidarity for the victims. A special ribbon was also created in remembrance and support of the LGBT community.

See more tributes from celebrities here, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote a tear-jerking tribute during his acceptance speech at the awards (his musical Hamilton won multiple Tony Awards including Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical).
