CELEBRITIES REACT TO THE DEATH OF NELSON MANDELA
Celebrities have reacted to the death of former South African President and anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela, who died yesterday (December 5th) at the age of 95. Mandela had ongoing health issues -- and spent three months in the hospital due to a recurring lung infection earlier this year. Jacob Zuma, the President of South Africa said in a statement that Mandela was "well looked after" and "comfortable" in his final days.
Mandela is known for leading South Africa out of apartheid. He served 27 years in prison for conspiring to overthrow South Africa's government. He was released in 1990 and won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993.
Celebrities have released statements and took to social media to react to the death of Nelson Mandela. President Obama said in a statement, “I cannot imagine my own life without Mandela’s example. May Nelson Mandela’s life of service to others and his unwavering commitment to equality, reconciliation, and human dignity continue to be a beacon for each future generation seeking a more just and prosperous world.”
Oprah released a statement, saying, "One of the great honors of my life was to be invited to Nelson Mandela's home, spend private time and get to know him. He was everything you've ever heard and more – humble and unscathed by bitterness. And he always loved to tell a good joke. Being in his presence was like sitting with grace and majesty at the same time. He will always be my hero. His life was a gift to us all."
Morgan Freeman: “Today the world lost one of the true giants of the past century. Nelson Mandela was a man of incomparable honor, unconquerable strength, and unyielding resolve—a saint to many, a hero to all who treasure liberty, freedom and the dignity of humankind. As we remember his triumphs, let us, in his memory, not just reflect on how far we’ve come, but on how far we have to go. Madiba may no longer be with us, but his journey continues on with me and with all of us.”
Idris Elba: "What an honor it was to step into the shoes of Nelson Mandela and portray a man who defied odds, broke down barriers, and championed human rights before the eyes of the world. My thoughts and prayers are with his family."
