As the verdict came in, it was no surprise that not only people on the streets began to react, but Twitter users went into a frenzy.
Celebrities made sure that they got their own opinions and reactions out on the social networking site, and some of them were just as shocked and appauled as the rest of us.
According to reports, even Beyonce had a moment of silence for Trayvon at her concert last night in Nashville, Tennessee, followed by her own rendition of “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston.
She then slowly transitioned into her hit song “Halo”, which we’re share made some eyes water in the venue.
It’s clear that the news of this verdict has shaken people up, and it’s definitely going to cause huge controversy with the justice system.

Nobody knows what really happened except trayvon and Zimmerman. The justice system relies on reasonable doubt not our emotions.
