Last night, the George Zimmerman trial reached a verdict, which resulted in a myriad of responses on Twitter from celebrities to athletes to everyone in between. One of those individuals who tweeted out their immediate reaction was Victor Cruz, who said, "Thoroughly confused. Zimmerman doesn't last a year before the hood catches up to him." Soon after, the tweet was deleted. 

A little while ago, Cruz went on the micro blogging site to respond to the now-deleted tweet and in the process, add a thoughtful perspective on the matter. Click through the thumbs to check out what the Giants wide receiver had to say.
