James Corden Opens TONY Awards with Emotional Message to Orlando

By: Jon Corrigan

James Corden hosted the 70th annual TONY Awards which aired on CBS on Sunday night.

However, following the terrorist massacre at Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub which killed 49 people and injured 53 others, Corden began the evening on somber note.

“On behalf of the whole theater community and every person in this room, our hearts go out to all of those affected by this atrocity,” he said to open to the show. “All we can say is you are not on your own right now. Your tragedy is our tragedy.”

“Theater is a place where every race, creed, sexuality and gender is equal, is embraced and is loved. Hate will never win. Together, we have to make sure of that. Tonight’s show stands as a symbol and a celebration of that principle.”
