As the Las Vegas tragedy unfolded, many people, including celebrities and politicians, took to social media to express their sadness and send out their condolences.

As the worst mass shooting in modern US history took place, #ThoughtsAndPrayers quickly began to trend on Twitter.

Many people of influence sent Las Vegas their "thoughts and prayers" and called on others to "pray for Las Vegas".

It seems that, with "thoughts and prayers" being dished out tragedy after tragedy but seemingly no action being taken to stop these attacks, some people are sick of the "empty" status updates.

While the sentiment is nice, Twitter users called out the fact that those in power need to do more than "pray" for Las Vegas.
