Rachel Jeantel, 19, appeared on Piers Morgan Live in her first ever television interview to share how “disappointed, upset and angry” she was that George Zimmerman was found “not guilty” of murder for killing her friend, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, and called the verdict “just B.S.”
“He was a calm, chill, loving person who loved his family, definitely his mother, and a good friend,” Jeantel told Morgan.
Jeantel also reiterated that Martin was not a “thug,” talked about how race influenced the jury’s verdict and declined to comment on defense attorney Don West because she’s a “Christian.”
Jeantel was the last person to speak with Martin on the night of February 26, 2012, 5 minutes before he was gunned down by Zimmerman.
