The usually reclusive Ocean hopped on Tumblr and blasted Trump, accusing him of using the tragedy to push his own agenda. “It sounds like that vacuous observation was about giving your NRA-loving constituency a hand job and spinning a tragedy for political gain," Ocean wrote. 

After he put Trump in check, he then sent condolences to the people of France. “Love to Paris and any individual or family who’s lost loved ones to evil anywhere in the world. Chill w/ the angels."
