While rioting and protests broke out in South Los Angeles Monday night in the wake of George Zimmerman’s not guilty verdict, some of the world’s biggest athletes and entertainers expressed their thoughts and frustrations at the 8th Annual All Star Celebrity Kick Off Party at the Playboy Mansion.
Snoop Dogg, who has two young sons, told HipHollywood that the shooting of Trayvon Martin hit close to home, and he’s disappointed that Zimmerman wasn’t held responsible.
“Something should have been done, manslaughter, something,” expressed Snoop. “To get off and then give him his gun back … wow.”
Others, like soccer star Cobi Jones and former NFL player turned reality star, Hank Baskett offered their condolences to the Martin family, and hoped protests could remain peaceful.
“I hope things stay peaceful,” said Baskett . “You can do more positive by protesting in the right way , when you want to bring violence and anger into it can only make things worse.”
Added Jones, “It’s a tragic situation, I just send my sympathies out to the Martin family.”
And also in attendance were Trayvon Martin supporters Jamie Foxx and Chris Brown, who our cameras caught as he was making his way inside. Check out all of the reactions below!
