In a world where far too many people care what celebrities think, it’s no surprise the glitterati were quick to react to the Ferguson grand jury decision to not indict Darren Wilson, a white cop who shot and killed Michael Brown.
The celebs took to Twitter to express their outrage over the decision.
( LANGUAGE MAY OFFEND)
Rap mega star Ja Rule was one of the first to chime in and I don’t know about you but when I want to get my news and information the first person I turn to is Ja Rule.

He was far from the only celebrity that had something to say.
My heart and sympathy goes out to Michael Browns family. They’re words and actions are remarkable considering their deep sorrow and grief.

The usual claims of racism.
Feeling stuck all the way over here in Sydney seeing the news just now… Sending my prayers to Ferguson & praying for an equal America.

The system that instills & protects white supremacy wins again. Humanity loses…No justice. I pray for Mike Brown & his family. So sad.

Those who know the law better than you.
All my love is with the family of Michael Brown. I applaud their strength and courage, mourn their loss, pray they see justice and change.

We must work together to stop the unnecessary loss of young men of color. Justice was not served in Ferguson.

Some good, old fashioned, America hating by “Ellen” producer Andy Lassner and music star Will.I.Am.
We are not the greatest country in the world. Certainly not tonight. #Ferguson

Apparently all of these celebrities are also legal scholars who had access to information no one other than the grand jury had.
