Athletes Respond To George Zimmerman Verdict

The George Zimmerman case was one that polarized America. After the jury announced the verdict Saturday of “not guilty” athletes took to social media to respond.

Most notably might have been Victor Cruz’s bold prediction. Cruz tweeted: “Thoroughly confused. Zimmerman doesn’t last a year before the hood catches up to him.” That tweet was deleted quickly but had already been captured via screen shot.

Tyrann Mathieu made a similar move tweeting: “makes you wanna scream free Aaron Hernandez” before deleting it. Roddy White


James Harrison

Dwayne Wade

Chris Paul

Marcus Vick



Torrey Smith who is no stranger to tragedy tweeted something more calming. Sounds almost like a response to Victor Cruz’s tweet.

  • Thomas Eric

    The prosecution faulted with the way they handled the case that’s why he got off they didn’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt which is what it takes in the justice system and also you can’t introduce a new charge at the end of the hearings that’s what really killed the case but again this is Florida…..remember Casey Anthony.

    Ok, how about u show the tweets from stars who support the ruling which was the correct one. He didnt just kill a kid, he defended himself from a “kid” who was pounding his head into the pavement

      Yes a kid that defended himself against some creeper stalking him and then got killed trying To defend himself. Next time just remember if your being stalked kids just get kidnapped and raped don’t fight back you might successfully defend and then seen as the offender.
