New York — Rockers, actors and other celebrities react to the death of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington at age 41.
"Chester Bennington was an artist of extraordinary talent and charisma, and a human being with a huge heart and a caring soul. Our thoughts and prayers are with his beautiful family, his band-mates and his many friends." — Warner Bros. CEO and Chairman Cameron Stang, in a statement.
"PETA will always remember Chester Bennington as a musical powerhouse and a powerful force for animal rights. He bared his skin to help animals keep theirs in PETA's 'Ink, Not Mink' campaign, and he spoke passionately about both the cruelty of the fur industry and the need to adopt homeless dogs and cats." — PETA Vice President Colleen O'Brien, in a statement.
"RIP to a legend (too soon)" — Akon, on Facebook.
