Get Jane’s opinion on the issues everyone can’t stop talking about, see some questions after the jump! Will Smith, Jamie Foxx and Sherri Shepard are just a few celebs to speak out about the Trayvon Martin case. Should celebrities stay out of legal issues, or should they broadcast their opinions to their millions of fans on Twitter to educate/sway their fans' opinions?

"We live in America where a girl that threw flour on Kim Kardashian was arrested on site. But the man who killed Trayvon Martin is still free," Smith said in a comment via Twitter.

Dancing With The Stars contestant Sherri Shepherd took to her Twitter and said, "Justice for #TrayvonMartin...sign the petition for Geo Zimmerman's arrest. God forbid if this happened to your child."

"God bless Trayvon Martin and his family. Humans but we're losing the race," Jamie Foxx wrote.

    eyewitness saw Martin on top of Zimmerman beating him. it was Zimmerman calling for help. Martin's father heard the tape and confirmed it wasn't his voice

    It wasn't trayvon yelling for help. It was Zimmerman on the ground being beaten my Martin. Eyewitness saw it and Martin's father confirmed it was not his voice calling for help. Sad national media isn't reporting this

    I believe this PUNK COWARD ZIMMERMAN.. Has been following all the news reports, looking at all the questions being posed and he is putting his story together.. The night of the MURDER (lets be clear on that) The police took zimmermans account of what happened verbatim.. He should have been arrested, processed, tested. All witnesses should have been contacted and interviewed, Trayvon girlfriend was NOT interviewed, the two women who witnessed Zimmerman straddling the body where never witnesses. Zimmerman didnt go to the hospital until the next day.. This paranoid guy could have easily done something to himself to make his injuries look worse.. The point is this..The police FAILED to do a thorough investigation.. PERIOD!!!! Justice for Trayvon.

    this case makes me sick I can't believe we live in a world with so much hatred!!.when I was listening to them 9-11 calls It made me almost cry hearing trayvon yelling for his life it wasn't his time to go and Zimmerman knew he was in a wrong for what he did and I am frustrated and pissed off he still not locked up it's clearly it wasn't self defense ! I could hear the lies in Zimmerman voice as he was on the phone with the 9-11 dispatcher it just sounded like he was just making up excuses to kill this young teen

    To will smith(yes i know he isn't reading this) We also live in America where facts are distorted by the media's propaganda and ignores stories like the one in Kansas City where two blacks doused a white kid with gasoline and set him on fire.

    question - i hear everyone saying will smith said this on twitter - but could someone send me a link to his twitter account? i have yet to find his original twitter account and his post on twitter. i only see this from second hand sources, and i'm starting to doubt he really said it at all.
