A variety of musicians and bands have begun speaking out on Twitter about the Kelly Thomas verdict. Will Pugh, of Cartel, stated, "If you care at all about civil liberties, you should be paying attention to the Fullerton PD's actions," and Man Overboard tweeted, "No justice for #KellyThomas means no justice for all American citizens. A sad day in our history. Embarrassing and heartbreaking to witness."

Madonna has apologized for calling her son the n-word on Instagram.
I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N word on Instagram. It was not meant as a racial slur.. I am not a racist. There's no way to defend the use of the word. It was all about intention... It was used as a term of endearment toward my son who is white. I appreciate that it's a provocative word and I apologize if it gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me.
