As the sad news that Adam “MCA” Yauch had passed away permeated the news cycle, many prominent politicians throughout New York understandably weighed in through social media in order to give their respects to Mr. Yauch, born and raised in Brooklyn, and wish his family well.
We’ve already noted Senator Chuck Schumer’s contribution, but since it was the best, we’ll start with him:
Born and Bred in Brooklyn, U.S.A., they call him Adam Yauch, but he’s M.C.A. RIP Adam.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand:
Sad day for so many New Yorkers & music fans everywhere. My heart & prayers go out to Adam Yauch’s family & everyone who loved him.
