Following the tragic reports of the horrific mass murder of 49 people at Pulse nightclub in Orlando this weekend, Prince William has gone on the record to say no one should ever be bullied for their sexuality. Gunman Omar Mateen killed 49 people and left at least 53 more injured at the popular gay night club in what many are calling the bloodies mass murder in the history of the United States.
Speaking to Attitude Magazine this month, Prince William, who recently signed a book of condolences for the families of the Orlando victims along with his wife Kate Middleton, says young people who are bullied to seek help.
He said, "The young gay, lesbian and transgender individuals I met through Attitude are truly brave to speak out and to give hope to people who are going through terrible bullying right now. Their sense of strength and optimism should give us all encouragement to stand up to bullying wherever we see it. What I would say to any young person reading this who's being bullied for their sexuality: don't put up with it."
Prince William added, "You should be proud of the person you are and you have nothing to be ashamed of."
Mateen was later shot during a shootout by law enforcement officials. Multiple reports say that Mateen frequented Pulse nightclub and had even used popular gay dating apps such as Grindr and Jack'd. He had also pledged his allegiance to ISIS during a 911 call he made before opening fire inside Pulse nightclub.
