Kim Kardashian is really upset about the Casey Anthony verdict (Updated)

As you no doubt already saw, heard or read, Casey Anthony, the Florida woman accused of killing her two-year-old daughter Caylee, was found not guilty of murder and other charges by an Orlando jury.

Naturally, this news was in­cred­ibly upsetting to at least one person who should be pretty obvious: Kim Kardashian, who was actively following the case and tweeting about it today. (Kim’s late father, Robert Kardashian, was a close friend of and attorney for another famously not-guilty defendant: O.J. Simpson. This irony was not lost on a good many tweeters.)

Speechless? Maybe. But certainly not tweet-less.

Update: Kardashian has tweeted a response to the backlash against her initial tweet. (No, I can’t believe I am writing about this either, thanks for asking!)

That backlash might best (and most provocatively) be summed up via this tweet:

So was Nicole Brown Simpson’s family when your dad got OJ off. RT @KimKardashian: CASEY ANTHONY FOUND NOT GUILTY!!!! I am speechless!!!less than a minute ago via Echofon Favorite Retweet ReplyAmerica’s Hero

Kardashian’s response, and more celeb reaction to the Casey Anthony verdict, after the jump.

The Karashian response:

But enough about Kim Kardashian. Let’s turn to the tweets from other bold-faced names. Joy Behar got political.

I am shocked by the #caseyanthonyverdict. Though I can’t say this is the first time Florida screwed up on an important vote. #HLNless than a minute ago via Seesmic Favorite Retweet ReplyJoy Behar

Michael Moore reminded us that people are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, although most tweeters were too busy posting about Casey Anthony’s guilt to notice.

Wait! She was already convicted by Nancy Grace and the rest of the media! Why did the jury have any say in this??less than a minute ago via OpenBeak Favorite Retweet ReplyMichael Moore

And Sharon Osbourne just may have predicted the future.

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
