UPDATE: The grand jury has chosen not to indict Darren Wilson in the murder of Mike Brown. Tweets have been included to reflect the reaction to the grand jury’s decision.

Celebrities have been tweeting their support ahead of the upcoming announcement as to whether or not police officer Darren Wilson will be indicted for the tragic murder of teenager Mike Brown.

A St. Louis grand jury has allegedly made a decision regarding the racially charged case in which a white police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in the city of Ferguson, Missouri, over three months ago. News outlets are reporting that the decision will be made public tonight (Nov. 24) at 9PM EST.

The public outcry, protests and extreme controversy surrounding the case have led celebrities like Jesse Williams, Missy Elliott and more to be outspoken and continue to bring awareness to the tragedy. As of right now — a few hours ahead of the grand jury’s official announcement — a handful of celebrities like Mia Farrow and Tichina Arnold have tweeted their support for Mike Brown’s family. Russell Simmons has been particularly vocal in his support, often tweeting and retweeting about the case.

You can see some of those reactions above and below.
