Last night, Ariana Grande and so many of her most dedicated fans were met with a completely terrifying tragedy: police are confirming that it was an a bomb that caused the explosion at her concert in Manchester, United Kingdom – which claimed 22 lives and injured many others.
While many celebs have taken to social media to express their grief over the horrific event, share their condolences for the victims, and reach out to Ariana directly in this awful time, what really stood out to us was how Ari's Nickelodeon family came together to show their support for her.
