The interview shows Mariah learning about what happened from Piers Morgan, where she quickly wanted to know more the situation. "I mean it is what everyone's gut reaction is... I pray for the victims, have they caught the shooter?”
She then offers her condolences to all who were affected by it. "'Wow, that's awful. Again I pray for the victims and hope all these can stop as soon as possible. You know I have spent a lot of time in Vegas and this type of thing anywhere happening anywhere is a huge tragedy.”
"It's terrible because people just going out to listen to music, really they're out for the night and something like this happens, it's shocking.” she added.
Before they headed to break, Piers openly discussed that they would talk to Mariah during the interim about continuing the interview in light of the horrible events, and then decided to postpone the chat until another time. That decision may have come too late, as viewers took to social media immediately to discuss just how odd the whole segment was.
Some comments on Twitter include "Completely distasteful, sit up woman!!” and "Heartfelt comments seem at odds whilst lounging on a sofa playing with your hair. Next to Xmas tree in October.”
Although she received some backlash on social, Mariah quickly took to hers to once again reach out to the victims of the tragedy. "Horrified to hear about the shooting in #LasVegas. My thoughts are with the victims and their families. Praying for everyone's safety,”she tweeted.
