Celebrities React To The Michael Brown/Ferguson Verdict

no title

The biggest news across America right now is that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson has not been indicted for the shooting death of Michael Brown.

This three-month-long saga has always been emotional, taxing not only the residents of Ferguson, Mo., but also anyone who has an opinion on the subject of criminal justice.

Celebrities and politicians have always used their fame as a platform to discuss political issues, and Monday's verdict was no exception.

President Barack Obama even made a live, televised statement following the decision, saying:

"First and foremost, we are a nation built on the rule of law. And so, we need to accept that this decision was the Grand Jury's to make. There are Americans who agree with it, and there are Americans who are deeply disappointed, even angry. It's an understandable reaction, but I join Michael's parents in asking anyone who protests this decision to do so peacefully.

President Obama was joined by celebs like Taraji P. Henson, Missy Elliott, and even the NAACP in voicing their opinions of the events taking place in Ferguson.

Ch-ch-check out the reactions on social media to the Grand Jury's decision. (below)

Ferguson Verdict Reached: Officer Darren Wilson Not Indicted In Death Of Michael Brown; Rioting, Looting Ensues

Filed under: Legal MattersViral: News

Michael Brown

After more than 100 days of protests, a federal grand jury has determined Darren Wilson's fate.

18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by the Ferguson police officer during an altercation on August 9. Police claim that Brown reached for Wilson's weapon, while Brown's family and several witnesses claim Wilson shot Brown while he was raising his hands to surrender.

The grand jury — consisting of nine white jurors and three black jurors — decided by majority NOT to indict Officer Wilson after deliberating for two days. The jury could have charged Wilson with first degree murder, second degree murder, manslaughter, or involuntary manslaughter.

After being informed of the decision by authorities, Brown's family attorney Benjamin Crump released the news shortly before the official announcement:

"The jury was not inclined to indict on any charges.”

At 9:22 p.m. ET, county prosecutor Robert McCulloch confirmed the verdict in a televised press conference:

"No probable cause existed to charge Officer Wilson."

In a statement, Brown's family said they were "profoundly disappointed" by the decision but asked for peaceful protest. Unfortunately, that did not happen.

ESPN Is Sorry For Their Out Of Line Report About Michael Sam’s Showering Habits In The Locker Room!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayZportzFootballNFLMichael Sam

Maybe ESPN should stick to reporting on actual sports stories, not when and where an openly gay athlete is showering!

Yesterday, reporter Josina Anderson felt the need to disclose what one of Michael Sam’s teammates told her about what’s going on in the locker room.

According to Anderson, Sam has been hanging back after practice and not showering with the rest of the Rams squad.

The report had a lot of people calling foul on Anderson and ESPN, including St. Louis defensive end Chris Long, who thought what the cable network did was completely inappropriate.

He’s right.
