Kim Kardashian Slammed for Trayvon Martin Tweet

Kim Kardashian was called a hypocrite by her Twitter followers for Tweeting about justice for Trayvon Martin when her father helped O.J. Simpson beat his murder case. 

From Rihanna to Will.i.am - scores of American stars took to Twitter to protest about the acquittal of 29-year-old George Zimmerman, who shot dead black teenager Trayvon Martin as he returned from the shops with sweets.
The jury's verdict on Zimmerman, a neighbourhood watch officer who suspected 17-year-old unarmed Trayvon was "up to no good" in the gated community, sparked small pockets of race riots in America.
Budding cop Zimmerman said he shot Trayvon in self defence after the teenager confronted and attacked him.
Trayvon's family said it was his screams for mercy which could be heard on the 911 call made that night in February last year. Zimmerman's mother argued it was her son's voice pleading with Trayvon.
Reality starlet and new mother Kim Kardashian caused a mini Twitter protest, writing just after the verdict: "My heart goes out to Trayvon Martin's family & loved ones.
"Thought & prayers being sent their way. #nojustice."
Fans rushed to respond, pointing out Kim's own father Robert Kardashian was on O.J Simpson's legal team which scored an acquittal for the murders of his wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronalld Goldman in 1995.
One wrote: "Kim Kardashian tweeted earlier "#nojustice" about the Trayvon case, but her dad was one of the attorneys that got OJ acquitted of murder."
Another added: "Kim Kardashian tweets in support of Trayvon when her own father helped get OJ Simpson acquitted. This country is full of so many idiots.
A year later Kim's father said in an ABC interview that he questioned Mr. Simpson's innocence: 'I have doubts. The blood evidence is the biggest thorn in my side."

i'm not a kim kardashan fan, but that's going too far. you can't hold a person reponsible for what their parents do. that was almost 20 years ago. she was a child.
