bombshell interview with an anonymous Zimmerman trial juror tonight with an exclusive chat with the witness everyone has been waiting to hear from since the verdict came down: Trayvon Martins friend Rachel Jeantel.
Jeantel, who created a media firestorm with her highly-polarizing testimony towards the beginning of the trial, appeared on Piers Morgan Live alongside her attorney. She described her reaction to Zimmermans acquittal as disappointed, upset and angry and called the jurys assessment of what happened just B.S.
Asked about what Trayvon Martin was like as a friend, Jeantel described him as a calm, chill, loving person and said she never saw him get aggressive or lose his temper. She said that the defenses attempts to portray Martin as a thug were unfounded and defended his relatively mild drug use. Weed dont make him go crazy, she said, it just makes him go hungry.
Jeantel also responded to the massive mockery she received in social media for the way she speaks, explaining that she was born with an under-bite that has made it difficult for her to speak clearly. When Morgan asked if shed been bullied for her condition, she simply responded, Look at me, to laughter from the studio audience.
Morgan attempted to get Jeantel to offer her opinion of defense attorney Don West, who many claimed was condescending towards her when she was on the stand. Jeantel shook her head, declining to say anything bad about the man given her Christian upbringing.
In the second part of his interview with Jeantel, Morgan turned to the creepy-ass cracker comment she made and the major impact it had on the tenor of the case. She explained that the term is actually spelled cracka and defined it as people who are acting like theyre police. She said that if Zimmerman had calmly approached Martin and introduced himself, her friend would have politely said what he was doing there and nothing more would have happened.
Unlike the juror, Jeantel did think Zimmerman was racially motivated. It was racial, she said. Lets be honest, racial. If Trayvon was white and he had a hoodie on, would that happen? She said she had a feeling it was going to be not guilty not because of the racial makeup of the jury, but because of the way the testimony went.
Jeantel insisted that Martin was creeped out and believed Zimmerman was following him, even worrying that he might be a rapist. She asked, For every boy or every man whos not that kind of way, seeing a grown man following them, would they be creeped out?
It wasn’t sponge worthy.
Mop Heads are now in control of the country?
So why did T bash in both sides of Z’s head?
I got about 20 seconds into it and couldn’t take it anymore
That cracked me up.
It was funny to see the juror go on Anderson Cooper and say she was sorry for Jeantel’s education. THE GIRLS 19 AND A JUNIOR THIS YEAR! If she flunks out one class, she can’t finish HS because she’ll graduate after 21.
Awwww, can’t believe I missed such a riveting and intellectual interview.
Did she call Piers ‘retarded’? I’d find a way to tune in for that.
You would have to add the IQ of his viewers to the mix to reach a score of 18.
I don’t do cursive. Do you have a transcript?
As Antoine Dodson will tell you, they’re raping everybody out here.
It’s what most 6-foot tall black men worry about when someone approaches them. [/s]
What a great epitaph. She needs to trademark that one.
And that she didn’t find her credible.
JEANTEL: ‘The jury, they old. that’s old school people. We in new school. My generation’...
whoop ass is still a felony crime.
You wasted 20 seconds of your life.:-)
Rachel Jeantel and Jehmu Greene need to team up and take their act on the road. Morgan can be their manager.
I take it that quantum mechanics wasn’t on the discussion agenda?
