Below are a sampling of tweets made by people who are either known as or believe themselves to be celebrities. Being an old fuddy-duddy, I have trouble recognizing anyone who became famous after 1990, so I guess we have to take Politico’s word that these tweets are, indeed, from famous people.

M.C. HAMMER

To validate the murder of an innocent child by finding his murderer”not guilty” invalidates the very idea of “Justice by System”. Painful

DIDDY

IN MEMORY OF TRAYVON MARTIN!!! REST IN PEACE YOUNG KING!!! ANY DEATH OF A KID IS A TRAGEDY!! WAKE UP!!

WILL I AM

There are black people in prison serving 10 to 20years for petty drug crimes…and zimmerman walks for killing a younge black man??? #ouch

ICE T

Ok.. Help me out. Treyvon got killed because he just outta nowhere decided to attack and try and kill Zimmerman? For no reason??

GABRIEL UNION

How do we explain this to children? RT @lolaogunnaike: Apparently walking while black is a crime punishable by death. #TrayvonMartin

JASON ALEXANDER

A young man was killed in Florida and no one is guilty of anything, except the victim. I don’t think stand your ground was meant for this.

MILEY CYRUS

I feel sick. #RipTrayvonMartin

KATY PERRY

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

Suggestion to Kate and Miley: Take an Alka Seltzer, go to bed, and when you get up, delete your Twitter account.
