Rihanna Saddened By George Zimmerman ‘Not Guilty’ Verdict



Rihanna is venting her frustration following Saturday’s verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.

A jury, comprised of six women, deliberated for more than 16 hours before reaching Zimmerman not guilty Saturday night.

‘“A system cannot fail those it was never built to protect” #JudicialFail,’ the “Love and Affection” singer wrote on Twitter.



Rihanna likened Trayvon Martin’s age to her younger brother.

She posted a photo of a baby faced Martin to her instagram account with a caption that read, “A child was gunned down for no reason! And nothing about that sounds like murder? My baby brother that sounds like murder ? My baby brother is 17, this rocked my whole s---! #thesystemisandhasalwaysbeenphucked”



Proponents allege Martin was profiled on the night of his death.

Martin left his father’s fiancé’s home on a rainy Feb. 26 night to pick up snacks. Zimmerman, who was acting as neighborhood watch, pursued Martin after deeming the Miami-Dade teen suspicious.

Zimmerman shot 17-year-old Martin following a confrontation. Zimmerman alleged he was acting in self-defense.
