Celebrities reacted with shock, grief, outrage and disgust when news broke that a Minnesota police officer had shot and killed a 32-year-old man named Philando Castile on Wednesday.

Castile's girlfriend posted a video of the aftermath on Facebook Live, and news of the shooting swept across social media. Castile's death comes less than 24 hours after Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old man from Baton Rouge, La., was killed by police. Two videos of Sterling's death were shared widely online.

"God help us," wrote Av DuVernay in reaction to Castile's death. "Another day, another hashtag," wrote Ne-Yo. "You didn't deserve this brother."

"Let's go NRA. I know y'all are for the 2nd amendment. Are you also for equal protection?" said John Legend.
