The George Zimmerman trial ended tonight after a whirlwind few weeks of controversy. The jury gave George Zimmerman a unanimous verdict of 'not guilty' for the murder of Trayvon Martin.
The details of the case have been widely debated, but the impact it's had on the public has reverberated throughout the country. Many celebrities and public figures have taken to their Twitter to hit out against the verdict. Nicki Minaj wrote, "And our taxes paid for that trial. We just paid to see a murderer walk free after killing an innocent unarmed little boy. #GodBlessAmerica."
Lena Dunham wrote, "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." Olivia Wilde tweeted, "I feel sick" and Evan Rachel Wood tweeted, "It was amazing to see all those pro-life supporters at the Zimmerman trial standing up for Trayvon Martin, wasn't it?" And finally, Kat Dennings wrote, "First Casey Anthony, and now George Zimmerman. I have no words. An INNOCENT YOUNG BOY WAS KILLED. FOR NOTHING. End of story."
