The Boston Marathon bombings which, at last count, injured 140 and killed three including an eight-year-old boy, have had a devastating effect on millions of people around the world. Boston native Ben Affleck joined many other celebrities to voice their support for the city and the victims.

“Such a senseless and tragic day,” the Oscar winner wrote on his Facebook page. “My family and I send our love to our beloved and resilient Boston.”

Another Boston native, Mark Wahlberg, was on the red carpet at the New York premiere of his new film, “Pain and Gain,” when he told the Associated Press, “I really didn’t even want to come tonight. I hadn’t really heard much — I spoke to my mom, and most of my family seems to be OK. It’s such a big event, there’s so many people there. It’s horrible man. It’s (expletive) disgusting, man. I just – I’m very upset.”

“Dancing with the Stars” host Tom Bergeron tweeted, “Watching coverage of Boston Marathon explosions, heart in my throat…In contact with family members in Boston near Marathon site. All OK. Thoughts are with everyone touched by this nightmare…Just finished a strange dress rehearsal. Here and not here. My heart is in Boston.”

Mindy Kaling (“The Office” and “The Mindy Project”) also tweeted, “My heart aches for my hometown.”

Authorities are still searching for whoever is responsible for the bombings.
