Following the guilty verdict for entertainer Vybz Kartel, many persons, including local celebrities, took to social media, commenting on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Gaza Slim: Right now, I am writing with tears in my eyes. Adidja Palmer has done so much for me. That man taught me things I didn't know of and principles of things in life. He is a good person. He has done so much for others, he has kids to take care of, not even one of his kids reach 13 yet. He has seven kids and all of them are young. I just can't believe this. Big up that juror that said the Boss wasn't guilty. Imagine 10 said guilty & and one said not... Big up yourself Addi, I appreciate all that you have done and I will never forget you.
