Donald Trump and Other Stars React to Amanda Knox's Acquittal

Shortly after Amanda Knox's murder conviction was overturned in an Italian courtroom Monday, celebrities took to Twitter, voicing their opinions and support of the American exchange student.

One such supporter was Donald Trump, who had a phone interview with CNN's Erin Burnett and said, "She was never guilty, all the evidence proved that. The prosecutor's got his own issues, he's got a terrible reputation and a terrible past."

The "Celebrity Apprentice" boss added that he has followed Knox's story carefully and hopes the best for the 24-year-old. "She's gonna now recapture her life and, frankly, maybe become a big star and make some dividends for herself."

Knox Not Guilty, About to Make Millions?

Not all of Hollywood supported Knox's acquittal. Nancy Grace spoke out at on Monday's "Dancing with the Stars," telling "Extra," "I think Amanda Knox's release was a huge miscarriage of justice. Italians apparently think she's too cute to go to jail!"

Other celebrities like Nick Lachey tweeted, "Congratulations to amanda knox and the knox family for the overturning of her guilty verdict in italy. What a relief it must be for them!!"

Alec Baldwin: "Re: Amanda Knox... I find it nearly impossible to comment on verdicts in such cases, as I did not sit on the jury, hear evidence."

Olivia Munn: "Amanda Knox was just freed!!!"

Jill Zarin: "Evidence NOT reliable...My heart goes out to the family of Meredith Kercher"

Matchbox Twenty: "Congratulations Amanda Knox!"

Piers Morgan: "What do I think? Honestly, I can't decide if Amanda Knox is guilty of murdering Meredith Kercher or not. My sympathies to both families...judging by Twitter, most Americans think Amanda Knox is innocent, most Brits think she's guilty."

Seth MacFarlane: "The Amanda Knox verdict is taking some time, 'cause they have to make sure it has just-a-the right-a amount'a sauce-a."

Kevin Nealon: "Would it be an understatement to say Amanda Knox and her boyfriend have had a bumpy relationship?"
