    It was the verdict heard ’round the world. George Zimmerman. Not guilty.

    And then the reactions poured in from social media. And it wasn’t just us regular people, celebs had a lot to say. And not just the celebs who have been open supporters of the Martin family from the beginning [like Russell Simmons and Jamie Foxx] but a ton of them – and lots of white celebrities!

     
     

    Miley Ray Cyrus @MileyCyrus

    I feel sick.

    Lena Dunham @lenadunham

    No. My heart is with Sybrina Fulton, Rachel Jeantel, everyone who loved Trayvon and has been sent the message that his life didn’t matter.

    Kim Kardashian @KimKardashian

    My heart goes out to Trayvon Martin’s family & loved ones. Thought & prayers being sent their way

    Mandy Moore @TheMandyMoore

    My heart is heavy…for all who knew and loved . His life mattered. This is shameful.

    Michael Moore @MMFlint

    Had a gun-toting Trayvon Martin stalked an unarmed George Zimmerman, and then shot him to death… DO I EVEN NEED TO COMPLETE THIS SENTENCE?

    Katy Perry @katyperry

    Ugh, my tummy turns. RT “@RonanFarrow: American justice: still colorblind (as long as you’re white).”

    Lance Bass @LanceBass

    That he didn’t get at least manslaughter blows my mind. Heart hurts for the Martin family.

    John Cusack @johncusack

    unarmed teenagers have a right to public space – without owning armed citizens any explanation as to their equal right to the sidewalk.

    olivia wilde @oliviawilde

    This has to be a call to action. We must participate in the political process and demand the justice system we ALL deserve.

    Kat Dennings @OfficialKat

    I can’t handle this. All that really matters are Trayvon’s parents, and making sure nothing like this ever happens again.

    Ellen Page @EllenPage

    Well that was a horrible and devastating decision.

    Eliza Dushku @elizadushku

    Oh man.. Just read . My heart goes out to the family. What a nightmare

    Tom Arnold @TomArnold

    Dear Son, I love you and there is no shame in running away from creepy ass crackers.
