Casey Anthony Verdict: See the Best Tweets About Nancy Grace's Reaction
"I hate the idea of someone who's clearly crazy & dangerous going free, but that's apparently the deal with Nancy Grace," writes satirist Andy Borowitz.
Nancy Grace was in shock after a jury declared Casey Anthony not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in 2008.
The HLN talk-show host has arguably played a bigger role than anyone in making the trial a nationwide media sensation -- and she was visibly stunned when the not-guilty verdict was read Tuesday.
"[Caylee's] death has gone unavenged," Grace said afterward, adding that "tot mom's lies seem to have worked." ("Tot mom" is her derisive nickname for Anthony.)
But it seems that Grace has found few supporters on Twitter. Here's a round-up of the best tweets in the Twitterverse about the HLN host:
