It is a sad day in America after George Zimmerman has been found not guilty for the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Russell Simmons spoke out about the verdict, stating that Zimmerman will “ultimately be punished” for the slaying of the unarmed boy.

Russell Simmons adds his two cents in on the Trayvon Martin trial, saying “He will soon be judged by a jury of his peers, and that is the best we can do. Whatever decision they make, is a decision that we must live with, whether we like it or not. Whether George Zimmerman is found innocent or guilty by the jury, I am firm believer that all of us live by karmic law, and he will ultimately be punished for the death of Trayvon, no matter what.”

However, Simmons was not the only one who had a strong opinion on the outcome of this case.

Waiting To Exhale author Terry McMillin wrote via Twitter, “I am not violent but I sure would like to slap George into next week. Or, maybe 25 years.”

As the week goes on, I am sure more and more reactions will come to the light.

May you rest in peace, Trayvon.
