“Going to be off twitter for a while today,” Wahlberg said. “Many friends and loved ones to check in on. Please #PrayforBoston and all those impacted by this. … Check in on all your friends who’re fans of Joe Mac. Knowing BH’s the way we do, I’m sure some were out to support Joe today. #PrayForBoston.”
Zohn posted to his followers, “I’m OK. Most importantly, praying for those injured and affected by this. Still don’t have a lot of info. Thanks for your love and concern.”
