Comedians, cartoonists, and writers around the world have responded to yesterday's terrorist attack at the offices of French magazine Charlie Hebdo. From Banksy to Jon Stewart and Tina Fey, many took to social media using the hashtag #JeSuisCharlie to express their sorrow and solidarity with the victims of the attacks, four of whom were cartoonists at the satirical magazine.
Others made a statement without saying a word, like Louis C.K. did at his Madison Square Garden show last night. Forgoing his usual black T-shirt, he wore a red shirt with the words "Charlie Hedbo" handwritten across the chest.
Meanwhile, vigils were held in Paris and around the world, both by journalists and colleagues and by supporters of free speech everywhere. Police are still on the trail of the two main suspects as of this writing. Charlie Hebdo plans to print next week, although the issue will be shorter than usual.
