Conrad Murray Verdict: What Hollywood Is Saying
Tyrese, Holly Robinson Peete and Eva Longoria are among those weighing in on Michael Jackson's personal physician's involuntary manslaughter charge.
Michael Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter Monday in Los Angeles.
Twelve jurors came to that conclusion after 10 hours of deliberation and nearly six weeks of testimony about the King of Pop's death. Jackson died on June 25, 2009 of acute propofol intoxication after suffering cardiac arrest in his home. Murray was charged with administering the fatal dose.
Shortly after the verdict was read, Hollywood personalities weighed in via social media.
