"It's a shame there were only 50 and not 100," he wrote.

A midlevel official from the Ministry of Social Development of Jalisco government was fired after he posted an inappropriate comment on Facebook about the shooting at Pulse gay club in Orlando that left fifty dead.

"It's a shame there were only 50 and not 100," he wrote.

Jalisco Governor Aristóteles Sandoval said he had ordered that the employee be fired and promised that "expressions of discrimination will not be tolerated under any circumstances."

Mexicans largely reacted to the Orlando nightclub shootings with messages of sympathy for the victims.

President Enrique Peña Nieto tweeted his condolences: “Mexico deeply regrets the violence in Florida and expresses its solidarity to the families of the victims and the American people.”

Many also lamented that mass shootings have become too common in the United States. "My first reaction on hearing the news was horror, but not disbelief," columnist Gabriel Guerra wrote in the newspaper EL UNIVERSAL. "This is another of the innumerable armed attacks that occur daily in the United States."
