  • People gather at a rally honoring Trayvon Martin with his photo standing (R) while being held by a man at Union Square in Manhattan on July 14, 2013 in New York City. George Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges in the shooting death of Martin July 13 and many protesters questioned the verdict.

News that Trayvon Martin's killer, George Zimmerman, was found not guilty in the Florida murder trial Saturday prompted protests and demonstrations nationwide, and also got celebrities fired up on Twitter.

Chris Rock: "So the police tell you to do something you ignore them somebody ends up dead . Isn't that in itself a crime."

Steve Harvey: "A Child is Dead & The Man that Killed Him is Free & Again The Child is Black...My Country Tis of Thee?"

Albert Brooks: "Now that Zimmerman is free he should take the name Dylan back."

Judd Apatow: "He will wind up in jail soon anyway when he tries to get his memorabilia and Jersey's back."

Miley Cyrus: "I feel sick. #RipTrayvonMartin"

Evan Rachel Wood: "It was amazing to see all those pro-life supporters at the Zimmerman trial standing up for Trayvon Martin, wasnt it?"

Lena Dunham: "No. My heart is with Sybrina Fulton, Rachel Jeantel, everyone who loved Trayvon and has been sent the message that his life didn't matter."
