Jack Osbourne (@MrJackO): "OK, it's official. This is shady! No body, no proof. They would have brought him back to the USA and added him to the exhibit, Bodies."

Solange Knowles (@solangeknowles): "Tonight was just another stepping stone for me, and I'm sure I may be the minority on this one but revenge is not the answer. I started to feel anxiety about all of the possibilities from the announcement tonight, but quickly reminded that none of us have the power. This was more about my feelings of hope tonight and less about politics. I have been through a roller coaster of emotions this evening and wanted to share the optimism that I have in the midst of it all. The world will be the world, but I do have hope because my hope is invested in love."
