AP reporter Cristina Silva tweets ‘So we can all kill teenagers now?’ after Zimmerman verdict

After George Zimmerman was found not guilty of all charges on Saturday evening, an Associated Press reporter, Cristina Silva, tweeted this out from her verified twitter account: “So we can all kill teenagers now? Just checking.

“So we can all kill teenagers now? Just checking — Cristina Silva (@cristymsilva) July 14, 2013

Obviously she may regret doing this and her page has been simply taken down after her “just joking” tweet didn’t undo the damage from the first comment. (See below)

The tweet was pulled, and now she says she was joking — teenagers are just annoying.

She explained that she was simply making a joke about Justin Bieber.

@halscrawford I didn’t. It was a stupid joke about how some teens are annoying. I’m so sorry.
It seems doubtful that critics will accept that response due to the timing of the tweet.
The highly publicized trial of George Zimmerman came to an end just hours before her tweet, finding him innocent in the murder of Trayvon Martin.

    A black teenager should jump on top of Christina Silva just to see her reactionand try to smear her into the street like Martin tried with Zimmerman! I know it won;t happen, if it does she’ll probably enjoy it until she gets hit by a car after being knocked unconscious but still…

    She’s no reporter, she’s an idiot activist.

    Some Journalists really need to go back to Journalism school.

    That Tweet is the type of biased comment that one would expect from a partisan teenager.

    Maybe Ms Silva really needs to decide if she is signed up to the US judicial process and the sacrosanctity of juries or not?
