ET caught up with reality star and LGBT advocate Lisa Vanderpump at her West Hollywood restaurant, Pump, where she said she felt "great sadness" about the "random act of violence" that took the lives of 50 people and left at least 53 others injured.
Vanderpump recounted being "really devastated," when she first heard about the killings, adding, "My heart goes out to the victims and their families."
"It's definitely thrown a kind of very somber shadow over today's events, which should be a day of celebration," Vanderpump said.
"I've had gay restaurants, bars, clubs, and I've known the gay community to be a kind, peaceful community that embrace one another… such a heinous act is devastating," she added.
"The best way to respect what happened last night, I think, is to continue to show the strength around the pride that everyone has," Erin shared. "You can be afraid… or you can stand stronger and band together with everyone and say, 'No matter what happens we're still going to stay strong,' and still show up and still support everyone's ability and right to love each other freely and not have to be in fear."
Sara echoed Erin's message, and added that the mass shooting is "just one more reminder that gun control is not where it needs to be."
"We need to be taking steps to complete eliminate access to military weapons," Sara added. " It's just not okay."
