Much to the dismay of his tightly knit family, last night saw a jury of six women find George Zimmerman ‘not guilty’ for the second degree murder and manslaughter of their son Trayvon Martin.
Now, in response to the startling decision not to find him guilty of what appeared to be an obvious crime, celebrities have taken to Jack Dorsey‘s social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts on the tragic matter.
Some of their comments below….
Azealia Banks: It is a very sad day. They ACTUALLY put Michael Vic in jail for killing some damn dogs, and they let Zimmerman free after killing an innocent child.
Elijah Blake: This is why I answer to only one Judge. One that cant be lied to, one who sees it all & at the end of the day I find Solace in GOD’s Justice.
Nicki Minaj: What are your thoughts? @BarackObama We’re allowed to disregard 911 operators, pursue and kill people now? But send Lauryn Hill to jail 4 TAXES … May God console the Martins at this time; as well as every other family that’s gone through this type of injustice.
Miguel: shame, reputation always gets the benefit of the doubt. harsh reality. #Trayvon.
Lupe Fiasco: Nobody knows what really happened except trayvon and Zimmerman. The justice system relies on reasonable doubt not our emotions. The case should have never been televised as the potential to antagonize US race relations was, in my dumb, opinion too risky & unnecessary.
Ciara: Whenever Some One Has Done Wrong, They Will Have To Face It. No Matter What. God Will Handle It. For There Is No Power Greater Than His.
Trey Songz: Can’t even gather words to express my hurt for Trayvon’s family. Devastated.
Rihanna: This is the saddest news ever!!! #whatsjustice #pray4theMartinFamily
Tamar Braxton: Going to bed. This has ruined my whole night. #JusticeForTrayvon
Miley Cyrus: I feel sick. #RipTrayvonMartin
Russell Simmons: Prayers for the Martin family. … Only God knows what was on Zimmerman mind but the gun laws and stand your ground laws must change.
Kelly Rowland: #Disappointed. literally in tears right now, over the way a KILLER was found not guilty!!?KeepingTrayvon’s family in my prayers! In shock!
Omarion: SMH! #RipTrayvonMartin it’s sad how history continues to repeat itself.The ultimate judge [Jehovah God] will serve justice believe that!
K. Michelle: Get the fuck outta here… This is just pathetic.
Bridget Kelly: Race is an issue, but it’s not THE issue here. A child was murdered. A life was taken. And there is no justice served. Unacceptable.
The Game: I feel for his parents & family…… Lord knows my heart couldn’t hold the amount of pain they’re drowning in. #RIPTrayvonMartin
Lil’ Kim: #riptrayvonmartin Very sad. I just heard about the verdict. We need justice.
Christina Milian: Sad.. The Florida court system made a major fail. #RipTrayvonMartin #JusticeForTrayvon.. So unfortunate things like this happens everyday.

Hit-Boy: They care more about dogs for sure.
Melody Thornton: I want to have faith in our system but I can only honestly say I am so fucking angry that a life was lost and 1 spared in the wrong order.
