Harry Styles and his mom, Anne Twist, nee Cox, have taken to social media to pay their condolences to those affected by the tragedy in Orlando, Florida, that left 49 people murdered at the hands of Omar Mateen. Harry Styles’ mother also paid homage to Jo Cox, a British Member of Parliament (MP), who was murdered by Thomas Mair.

Oddly, both of these tragedies mourned by Harry Styles and Anne Twist have roots with America, hate groups, and mental illness.

Of course, it was a surprise to hear from Harry Styles on social media because he is taking on the role of actor now that One Direction is officially on a break. According to BitBag and others, Harry Styles is on location filming Dunkirk, while the rumors about Teen Wolf Season 6, Scream Queens, Wicked, or playing Mick Jagger are still unconfirmed.

In fact, the only reason Harry Styles has checked in on Instagram since he chopped off his ponytail and donated it to the Little Princess Trust was to post a picture of a rainbow in solidarity with those murdered at the Orlando, Florida, nightclub shooting on June 12.

Along with Harry Styles, his mother also posted on Twitter with a similar rainbow symbol of mourning for Orlando.

However, a few days later, on June 16, there was a tragedy that took place in England that shocked the population and Harry Styles’ mom, in particular.

Harry Styles’ mom had a good reason to be shocked about the death of Jo Cox because The Atlantic reports the event was considered out of the ordinary since her murderer was found to have racist, neo-Nazi materials from the United States at their home, according to Guardian.

Sadly, there are many similarities between the perpetrators of the incidents in Orlando and against MP Jo Cox.

For example, the Washington Post says that those that knew him described him as “apolitical” and writes the following about MP Jo Cox’s killer, Thomas Mair, from Harry Styles’ home country.

“[Thomas Mair] fits a pattern of far-right attacks. We’ve had a number of these lone wolves — men… who are on the periphery of these movements and who believe that the battle is coming. On the one hand, they’re on their own. But they’ve also been inspired by a lot of the things they read.”

Adding to this, Spiegel writes about how Omar Mateen, Thomas Mair, and other “lone wolf” terrorists are often perceived as “apolitical” and follow a pattern that makes them difficult to suss out by authorities.
