Christchurch Attacked, Sonny Bill Speaks Out

Following the horrific attack on two mosques in Christchurch, NZ, in which as many as 49 were killed, All Blacks star Sonny Bill Wiliams made his thoughts known.

The attacker targeted Muslims at Friday prayer in their place of worship, and Williams, who converted to Islam in 2009, spoke out.

The tweet from Williams has been retweeted over 38,000 times with well over a thousand replies. One said:
