Celebs unleash outrage over Castile verdict: ‘I’ll start worrying about ISIS when they can carry a badge!’

Celebrities unleashed the hyperbole.

On Friday Officer Jeronimo Yanezin was acquitted of manslaughter charges in the 2016 shooting death of Philando Castile. The case grabbed national attention after his girlfriend live-streamed the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook.

Celebrities from both the entertainment world and the political sphere unleashed an avalanche of commentary is response to the acquittal.

Comedian D.L. Hughley had one of the most shocking responses when he compared the Islamic State terrorists as favorable to police.

California Rep. Barbara Lee erroneously contended that the world watched the shooting via live stream, even though Castile’s girlfriend started the video after he had been shot.

Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton went safer with a tweet about a child she met who knew Castile, but still declared shame on the justice system.

Actress Yvette Nicole Brown, like Rep. Barbara Lee and many others on social media, believed the actual killing was on video.

Many other celebrities just shared their outrage.
