Yesterday, the star took to her Instagram stories to talk about her feelings surrounding the recent spate of mass shootings across America.
"I'm making this video to talk about how scared and worried I am about… the fucking shootings going on, and how nobody 'in charge' is doing anything to change anything at all," Eilish said in the intimate video, before imploring her followers to text "checks" to 644-33 to get in touch with Everytown for Gun Safety. "Please just help. Love you."

This isn't the first time Eilish has touched on the issue of gun control. Previously, Eilish told the Los Angeles Times that she was deeply moved by the bravery of the Parkland survivors, pointing in particular toward the tenacity of the young women spearheading the movement.

FACT: People in peer nations play video games, use social media & have mental health issues at similar rates to Americans. So why is our gun homicide rate 25x higher? Lax gun laws. ⠀ ⠀ ACTION: Text CHECKS to 644-33 & tell your senators to pass background checks on all gun sales & a strong Red Flag law.
