Eighteen-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in August. Riots followed in the small Missouri town, where racial tension has a deeply rooted history, especially between police and citizens.

Many called for the officer to stand trial, but the grand jury's Monday decision means no probable cause has been found to charge Wilson with a crime, and, subsequently, there will be no trial.

The announcement of the grand jury's decision led to protests nationwide and violent riots in Ferguson, where protesters flipped and burned police cars, broke store windows and looted at liquor stores and gas stations. The situation was still developing on Monday night and looked like it could continue to escalate overnight.

The controversial decision and its announcement had many talking on social media, and celebrities were no exception to that. Below, see some of the angriest, most disappointed celeb tweets to follow the announcement in Ferguson.
