Black celebrities continued to gather on Twitter Friday morning to show their support for the guilty verdict brought down the night before against former Oklahoma City Police Officer Daniel Holtzclaw, who is facing more than 200 years in prison for sexually assaulting and raping 13 black women. Holtzclaw learned his fate Wednesday, which was also his 29th birthday.

For many of those tweeting, it seemed, the verdict was an anomaly, considering the number of high-profile cases involving white police officers accused of committing heinous crimes against unarmed black people in which most of the defendants were either acquitted or never indicted in the first place.

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith, who has become an activist in her own right speaking out against human trafficking, tweeted Friday a few simple but meaningful hashtags in apparent solidarity with Holtzclaw's victims, putting a spin on the Black Lives Matter social activism phrase that rose to prominence last year. She followed that tweet up with another that stated, "One woman is all women."


Actress Gabrielle Union, who is a rape victim herself, chose the retweeting route Friday, one day after tweeting in part that the case was "horrific."


Rapper Talib Kweli, who has carved out somewhat of a side career as a social activist, also expressed his support for the verdict through a series of retweets, including one that showed the range of emotions Holtzclaw clearly experienced as the verdict was read.


Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson, who has been publicly protesting police brutality cases in the U.S. since Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri, followed suit with his own take on the case, tweeting that while he was relieved at the verdict, the damage was already done.


Political strategist Donna Brazile simply tweeted that "justice" had been served, following the verdict's announcement. She also employed the "SayHerName" hashtag, which emerged this summer with the case of Sandra Bland, a black woman who died in police custody after she was arrested for a driving violation.


Journalist Roland Martin placed a harsh indictment on the media attention given to the case, while shamelessly plugging his own network's coverage of the trial.


Celebrities and other well-known public figures weren't the only ones to sound off on what has come to be known as Black Twitter, with many other African-American users and organizations expressing their opinion on the verdict.
