“My heart hurts.”

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.

My heart hurts

— johnlegend (@John Legend)

Keep Trayvon's family in our prayers. Deeply unsatisfying verdict. Trial by jury is our only choice in a democracy.

I feel sick. #RipTrayvonMartin

We can keep working 4 a society where walking in ur neighborhood isn't a death sentence MT @LpinskyLinda furious re: verdict/What can we do

— CoryBooker (@Cory Booker)

Linda, we can't let this pain be permission 2 stop, give up or give into despair. It must be a challenge to us to keep pushing @LpinskyLinda

— CoryBooker (@Cory Booker)

We must mourn the unnecessary & unjust death of a child, but to honor him we must rededicate ourselves to the very ideals that were violated

— rihanna (@Rihanna)

George Zimmerman not guilty can u believe that. Wow


I know many people are very upset about the verdict, but we must remain peaceful. No matter what, remain peaceful.

— UncleRUSH (@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.

— UncleRUSH (@Russell Simmons)

This is not "only" about race. This is about laws that allow racist acts to go unpunished. We must change laws that promote injustice

— UncleRUSH (@Russell Simmons)

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

They traded us one OJ and a BARACK for a ZIMMERMAN.

— MARLONLWAYANS (@marlon wayans)

Black Parents hold your kids at home because apparently killing black children is okay

— MARLONLWAYANS (@marlon wayans)

I'm not happy, our judicial system has once again failed us

— MARLONLWAYANS (@marlon wayans)

So dogs mean more than blacks do in this country. Mike Vick gets two years and Zimmerman gets off? 4give me PETA But this some BULLSHIT!

Zimmerman is no angel but the lack of evidence and the concept of self-defense, especially in Florida law, gave the jury little other choice

— realDonaldTrump (@Donald J. Trump)

Fucking Zimmerman got away with murder today wow what kind of world do we live in

— roddywhiteTV (@Roddy White)

All them jurors should go home tonight and kill themselves for letting a grown man get away with killing a kid

— roddywhiteTV (@Roddy White)

And our taxes paid for that trial. We just paid to see a murderer walk free after killing an innocent unarmed little boy. #GodBlessAmerica

— NICKIMINAJ (@Nicki Minaj)

Oh man.. Just read #trayvonverdict. My heart goes out to the #martin family. What a nightmare #tragic

— elizadushku (@Eliza Dushku)

If u really believe racism isnt a massive problem, that the oppression of minorities is not a horrific and systemic issue. U R in denial.

— EllenPage (@Ellen Page)

Wow so a human life don't mean shit in America... they gave me 2 years for just having a gun smh #fuckthesystem
