While he claimed that he knew it was coming, the Lakers player admitted that he's still "hurt" by the decision. "Was I surprised at the verdict. Absolutely not but damnit I was & still am hurt and heavy hearted!" he added, before apologizing to Breonna's family and friends, "I send my love to Breonna mother, family and friends! I'm sorry!

LeBron isn't the only celebrity who is enraged by Kentucky grand jury officials' decision that they will not file murder charges in the shooting death of Breonna. Kerry Washington remarked, "Daniel Cameron is on Donald Trump's short list as replacement of #RGB (sic) on the Supreme Court. The same man who decided to not charge the officers responsible for killing #BreonnaTaylor. Vote."

Viola Davis fumed on Twitter, "Bulls**t decision!!! BLACK LIVES MATTER!!! Cannot be said enough times." Mandy Moore tweeted, "I don't have the words. #BreonnaTaylor and her family deserve justice," while "Schitt's Creek" star Dan Levy added, "Disgusted. Enraged. Heartbroken. Please contribute if you can. Justice should not be a luxury."

George Clooney also blasted lawmakers in his native Kentucky for failing to serve justice for Breonna, writing that he's "ashamed" of the decision. "The justice system I was raised to believe in holds people responsible for their actions," he said in a statement.

The "Money Monster" star continued, "Her name was Breonna Taylor and she was shot to death in her bed by 3 white police officers, who will not be charged with any crime for her death. I know the community. I know the commonwealth. And I was taught in the schools and churches of Kentucky what is right and what is wrong. I'm ashamed of this decision."
