A Florida jury on Saturday evening concluded that George Zimmerman is not guilty for the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Celebrities took to social media to express their feelings on the controversial verdict.
Actually, don’t die in a fire, George Zimmerman. Live your whole miserable life knowing you killed an innocent child for nothing.

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?

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

Dear George Zimmerman: may I suggest you use Gene Hackman's escape strategy from the end of THE BIRDCAGE?

It's been only 10 minutes since the verdict was read and George Zimmerman has already called 911 a dozen times.

May God console the Martins at this time; as well as every other family that's gone through this type of injustice.
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 is heavy…for all who knew and loved #TrayvonMartin. His life mattered. This is shameful.

I can't handle this. All that really matters are Trayvon's parents, and making sure nothing like this ever happens again.
There are black people in prison serving 10 to 20years for petty drug crimes…and zimmerman walks for killing a younge black man??? #ouch
