Rebel Wilson is sharing her thoughts on the Trainwreck shooting that left three dead, including the shooter, and nine wounded in Lafayette, Louisiana, on Thursday.

"I don't like getting political but America you really have to follow Australia's example re gun laws," Wilson, 35, Tweeted on Friday.

The Pitch Perfect 2 star didn't stop there.

"I don't remember a mass shooting in Australia since they overhauled the gun laws. It seems like every week in America there's a shooting," the actress Tweeted. "I just want people to be safe, especially people that are doing one of my favorite things in the WORLD - going out to the movies 2 have fun."



Wilson is not the only celebrity who has shared her thoughts. Trainwreck star Amy Schumer took to Twitter to express her condolences shortly after news of the tragedy broke.

"My heart is broken and all my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Louisiana," Schumer wrote.

The film's director, Judd Apatow, offered his condolences as well, telling Entertainment Weekly that the shooting "devastates" him.

"One of the reasons we make these movies is because the world can be so horrifying and we all need to laugh just to deal with it," Apatow said in a statement to EW. "So to have this happen in a room where people were smiling and laughing devastates me. My thoughts and love go out to the victims and anyone touched by this madness or any madness. We, as a country, need to find a way to do better."
