Tons of celebs in and around the YBF community have voiced their digust, disdain and hurt over the No Indictment ruling by a Staten Island Grand Jury in the Eric Garner police brutality case.  We've rounded up some of the powerful celeb reactions inside...

Twice in almost 10 days, a Grand Jury has done the extremely rare act of giving a No True Bill (no indictment) ruling on a case involving a police officer and an unarmed black man.

On Wednesday, it was announced that Eric Garner, a husband and father of six kids who was killed after a fatal chokehold by police after SUSPICION of loose cigarette sales, would not receive justice.  The officer(s) in his case would not be indicted on ANY charge.

The ruling shook vocal and non vocal celebs into expressing their anger with constant police brutality against blacks, constant injustice and everything in between.

Diddy said, while looking worse for wear:

#WATCH .......I can't take it anymore! It's Enough, and enough is enough! Honestly my emotions are all over the place. We as artists, myself included, all have to step up and be better leaders in our communities. It's a hard burden to bear, but we have been chosen whether we like it or not. We need to do whatever we can in a POSITIVE way, to help unite people of all colors in this injustice! In order to be successful, it is very important that we have a well ORGANIZED, STRATEGIC plan. This is super important in order for us to make change!! REAL organization, REAL strategy and a TRUE commitment to not forget and move on like we usually do when the news stops reporting. This has to stop and we as a people are the only ones that can stop it. I truly do not have the right to preach, but I do have the right to speak. #EricGarner #MikeBrown #UNITE

...

when I see a cop car I get scared! My kids get scared! #UNITE #EricGarner #MikeBrown . #Fact this tragedy is not a one time occurrence
