Mariah Carey was criticized for doing an interview with “Good Morning Britain” from Los Angeles the morning following the Las Vegas mass shooting that took place on Oct. 1.
During the pre-planned interview, “Good Morning Britain” host Piers Morgan asked Carey what she thought about the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting that took 58 lives and injured hundreds more
Carey called the shooting “terrible” and “shocking” while she lounged on a couch in front of a Christmas tree to promote her upcoming Christmas shows in the UK, which drew criticism on Twitter notes HuffPost.

In response to the outcry, Carey’s reps told HuffPost:
Piers Morgan’s unexpected line of questioning with Mariah is irrelevant within this tragedy; we hope your news organization continues to give appropriate coverage and support to those affected by this horrific crime.
