Jason Aldean urges fans to pray for Las Vegas after 'senseless' massacre

  Jason Aldean urges fans to pray for Las Vegas after 'senseless' massacre Jason Aldean has shared another heartfelt post in the wake of the massacre in Las Vegas during his performance at the Route 91 Harvest festival. The country singer rushed off stage when gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino onto the crowds in the Las Vegas Village below. He narrowly avoided being in the line of fire himself, but witnessed the atrocity of the attack which left 59 people dead and hundreds more injured. Jason took to Instagram again on Tuesday (03Oct17) to urge fans to pray for Las Vegas, and wrote: "Over the last 24 hrs I have gone through lots of emotions. Scared, Anger, Heartache, Compassion and many others. I truely dont (sic) understand why a person would want to take the life of another. Something has changed in this country and in this world lately that is scary to see. This world is becoming the kind of place i am afraid to raise my children in." The Night Train star added that the American public must unite regardless of their race, gender or political beliefs, writing: "We are all humans and we are all Americans and its time to start acting like it and stand together as ONE! That is the only way we will ever get this Country to be better than it has ever been, but we have a long way to go and we have to start now." Jason, whose tour bus was left riddled with bullet holes following the mass shooting, concluded: "My heart aches for the Victims and their families of this Senseless act. I am so sorry for the hurt and pain everyone is feeling right now and there are no words i can say to take that pain away. "Just know u all are in my heart and my prayers as we all go through this together. Time to come together and stop the hate! #stopthehate #prayforlasvegas.

It was a bad choice of words then, and a bad choice of words now.

Jason Momoa is getting shredded on social media today after a joke he made in 2011 about rape began making the rounds.

The actor was on a 2011 Comic-Con panel for his "Game of Thrones" character when he was asked what he loves about fantasy shows. 

"As far as sci-fi and fantasy, the genre, there's so many things you can do [with it]," he said. "Rip someone's tongue out of their throat and get away with it, rape beautiful women."

Clearly, this was meant as a joke and the crowd laughed loudly. The cast and crew of "Game of Thrones" grimaced and put their heads down and covered their faces as the crowd laughed. Jason, trying to keep it light, said, "next question," while covered his face with his jacket.

Jason Aldean attracts criticism from UFC president after national anthem performance 'snub'

  Jason Aldean attracts criticism from UFC president after national anthem performance 'snub' Country singer Jason Aldean has been slammed by UFC president Dana White for allegedly turning down the chance to sing the national anthem at a fight. The singer/songwriter was onstage at the Route 91 Harvest Festival last weekend (01Oct17) when gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on the Las Vegas audience, killing 59 people and injuring more than 500 others. Aldean scrapped a string of tour dates following the massacre, but performed a touching tribute to the victims on Saturday Night Live (SNL) on Saturday (07Oct17) instead, singing I Won’t Back Down by Tom Petty, who died on Monday after suffering a cardiac arrest. However, White told TMZ Sports he was furious that Aldean had agreed to the SNL gig despite turning down the chance to perform the national anthem at UFC 216 in Las Vegas on Saturday (07Oct17). The 48-year-old said 15 survivors of the shooting were in the audience to watch the fight between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee at the T-Mobile Arena, along with hundreds of emergency services first responders. White told TMZ that Aldean's reps allegedly turned down the offer, and said he was too shaken up from the shooting and "might never perform live again". Despite that remark, Aldean instead performed on SNL - a move which has infuriated White. "His image was more important than coming back to Vegas and playing for the people who are his fans and who got shot watching him play," he told TMZ Sports. "F**k you Jason Aldean. Stay out of Vegas.
