Celebrities took to social media Monday night to express their dismay with the Ferguson grand jury decision not to indict Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
Feeling stuck all the way over here in Sydney seeing the news just now… Sending my prayers to Ferguson & praying for an equal America.

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.

Some how we must change the insanity of our judicial system. We need a PEACEFUL organized determined effort to change our process of communication with law enforcement. Too many young black men being slain before even being arrested. No weapons no explanation just another one bites the dust. At some point this miscommunication must cease. It’s costing us way too many of our youths.?i pray we collectively work toward a peaceful resolve. Law makers law enforcers and citizens need to remedy this. We all need a forum to speak, express, communicate, articulate the legislate. No more mothers and fathers losing sons like this.

“Ferguson” and “Larry the Cable Guy” are currently trending in 1st &2nd place, respectively. We are in a badly-written horror movie.

Whenever these moments happen it feels like a scene from Ace In the Hole or Network. The media having a pain orgy as a TV show. So sad.
