    Celebrities took to social media tonight, expressing shock, outrage and sadness that neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

    Some Twitter users - such as Russell Simmons, Sean "Diddy" Combs and Solange Knowles - posted a solid, black square for their Twitter avatar, a showing of support for the victim.

    "Say a prayer for Trayvon Martin's family," Simmons wrote.

    Donald Trump wasn't surprised by the verdict.
    "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," he wrote.

    New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz wrote an anti-Zimmerman Tweet but quickly deleted it.
    "Thoroughly confused," he wrote. "Zimmerman doesn't last a year before the hood catches up to him."

    Rapper Talib Kweli expressed hope that Martin's family will receive justice.
    "The way this Zimmerman case divides us shows how far we still have to go as a country," he wrote.

    Even though Zimmerman was found not guilty, I still don't recommend armed vigilantism, stalking and/or manslaughter, i.e. the things he did.

    Zimmerman found not guilty. Sad situation but that's the right call. No solid evidence for him to be guilty.

    Christine Quinn is the speaker of the NY City Council, and a candidate for mayor. Lena Dunham is the writer/producer/star of HBO's Girls, and the creater of that idiotic Obama ad about losing your political virginity. There are a few other celebrities up there, most of whom disgraced themselves with their comments, and a bunch that I've never heard of, but I'm sure that the left won't disappoint us in displaying their vitriol.

    For the last time, a 6' 1" 175lb wannabe thug who's into MMA and is a member of a fight club is not a child.

    But the "dividing" came from Sharpton, Jackson, and of course, hussein's famous "...if I had a son..."! Spurring racial division and hate is political reputation and big dollars.....for some.

    hussein once said that the US Constitution was too restrictive. Did that include the 13th and 14th Amendments as well? Hmmmmmmm..........

    Aren't these the same people who think it's funny to say, "You lost, get over it!"?

    All this means is that the PR firm, Julison Communications, did its job well.
