We are just a gossip site. We follow the freaking Kardashians, and when Justin Bieber cuts his hair, we’re the first ones to know about it. When real tragedy hits. When our country tries to somehow cope with its worst mass shooting in history, we don’t feel like it’s our place to talk about it.

It’s like if McDonald’s put roasted duck on their menu. They certainly could do it. Nothing is stopping them from doing it, but who the hell goes to McDonald’s looking for roasted duck? No one. You want a cheeseburger. The kind of cheeseburger that makes you question what you’re doing with your life. A cheeseburger that causes instant depression.

We are a McDonald’s cheeseburger, and we’re always going to be here for you when you want to make a mistake. We got you covered.

So, we’re not going to talk about the disgusting shooting. It’s not our job. Instead, listen to how the fine folks at the Tony Awards honored the victims.

James Corden opened the show with a heartfelt message, and Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda delivered the speech of the evening while receiving the award for Best Original Score.
