Shortly after Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson's death, celebrities are sharing their thoughts over the guilty verdict on Twitter. Among those expressing their feelings on the conviction are raptress Nicki Minaj and "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest.
While MJ's family are expressing their satisfaction over the Monday, November 7 verdict, 28-year-old Nicki offers a more reflective thought. The "Moment 4 Life" hitmaker tweets, "People are cheering but there really are no winners here. This has been an utter tragedy from beginning to end. #RIPMichaelJackson"
36-year-old Ryan, in the meantime, questions how much time Conrad will actually serve in jail. After noting in a tweet, "You could hear one shriek in the courtroom as the verdict was read," he writes, "Big question is will conrad murray serve time? Judge has 20 days to sentence him, and can give him up to 4 years in prison."
Also sounding off about Conrad's conviction is comedienne Ellen DeGeneres. In her tweet, the host of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" reveals that she will be talking to the late King of Pop's brother Jermaine Jackson on Wednesday, November 9. "I can't wait to talk to him," she adds.
Nick Cannon and Tyrese Gibson also react to the guilty verdict. Nick writes, "GUILTY! Justice for Michael Jackson," and Tyrese comments, "MICHAEL JACKSON YOU WILL FOREVER BE MISSED BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN... REST IN HEAVEN!! REST IN HEAVEN!! I hope the family has closure!! RIH!"
Other celebrities taking to Twitter to share their thoughts include Piers Morgan and Star Jones as well. Piers tweets, "Whichever way you viewed the evidence, #ConradMurray 's behaviour was clearly unethical for a doctor. Right verdict," while Star notes, "Dang #conradmurray has been remanded to jail pending sentence. 'Go directly to jail...do not collect $200. Go to jail!' "
