After the news broke of a shooting at YouTube headquarters in California, Donald Trump eventually responded. Following the president's remarks, critics wasted no time hitting back.

Trump on YouTube shooting

In yet another example of a mass shooting in the United States, the headquarters for YouTube was the location for the latest tragedy.

On Tuesday afternoon in San Bruno, California, a suspect walked into the YouTube building and opened fire. The incident took place shortly before 4 p.m. EST, with police receiving a flood of 911 calls. The suspect has been described as a white female wearing a head scarf, who has since been compromised. As of press time, it's unknown whether or not the suspect was killed by police or by turning the gun on herself. Multiple victims were rushed to the local hospital, though it's unknown how many lives have been lost.

After the news broke and went viral on social media, Donald Trump decided to give his thoughts with a predictable tweet on April 3.

"Was just briefed on the shooting at YouTube's HQ in San Bruno, California," Trump tweeted. "Our thoughts and prayers are with everybody involved," he added. "Thank you to our phenomenal Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders that are currently on the scene," Trump wrote to conclude his tweet. As expected, the president's "thoughts and prayers" response didn't go over well with the opposition.

Instant reaction

After Donald Trump tweeted about the shooting at the YouTube headquarters, those who oppose the commander in chief didn't hold back their thoughts in response. "If there were no guns there wouldn't be a shooting in the first place," one tweet read.

"Your thoughts and prayers are worthless," one Twitter user wrote.

"What, you’re not going to take this opportunity to blow the NRA?" a tweet wondered with sarcasm. "You advocate for the type of hate that makes this a regular occurrence," yet another tweet added. "Thoughts and prayers, good job first responders. That's always your response. But it isn't actually helpful and doesn't actually do anything," a tweet noted.

"How many times are you going to tweet this generic tweet with just a different location before doing something about common sense gun laws?" a social media user went on to write. "Want to protect Americans? GUN CONTROL NOW! Your border wall is just a bluff for the Russia invasion that installed you," a follow-up tweet read.
