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.
