Well the backlash is just starting., imo. Florida in her defense cannot make laws based on entertainers opinions.  However the SYG law is or was ambiguous at best, and since everyone insists this case was not about SYG but self defense, the jury imo either was blind deaf and dumb or ignorant.

And FYI I had some friends see Rod Stewart last year and said he was fabulous!

Over a verdict in a court case?  That's ridiculous

It's about a law

Not a case or a verdict

Zimmerman didn't take that defense.  This is so convoluted

Thanks in advance.

Well Justin Timberlake needs to announce his concert next month is cancelled because you can buy tickets from scalping websites and that would screw over these people buying tickets above face value.

Of course it's about a case and verdict.  If the Zimmerman trial had not turned out the way it did, they would not be doing this.  It would never have come about outside that very specific set of circumstances
