Nancy Grace Wins After Casey Anthony Verdict

    July 5, 2011

While Casey Anthony may or may not be celebrating the not guilty verdict, perhaps the biggest winner of the Anthony verdict fallout is Nancy Grace — at least in social media since. Sure, most of the reaction tries to vilify Anthony and the United States justice system, but it’s awfully clear Grace was one of the biggest recipients of the post-verdict attention, if only to make fun of, and/or mock her.

Apparently, Grace said something along the lines of “of course the jury is going to find her guilty” or something similar. Now, it seems like a lot of users on Twitter are actually satisfied with the verdict, if, for nothing else, than to see how Grace will react. Shortly after the verdict was announced, Nancy Grace was listed on the Twitter trends list, and the resulting tweets about her reaction were awfully biting, if not downright disturbing; but that’s what you get when you put yourself out in front of the firing line with a “I’m infallible” type of approach.

For an idea of what’s being referenced, check out the following videos:

So that’s Nancy Grace in a nutshell, and with those, you can see why the Twitter reaction was swift and, in some cases, violent:

Please don’t, Ryan. Besides, you’ll probably be found not guilty. More of the Nancy Grace fun, where many Twitter folks were hoping her head would explode:

In case you’re unaware, here’s Bo Pelini in action, as only Bo Pelini can do it:

Oddly enough, Pelini’s brilliance is not the only athletic entity associated with the Anthony verdict. True, Pelini’s association is because of a tweet, but still, he’s so awesome on the sideline, he deserves to be included. Here’s a real reaction from Candance Parker, one of the greatest women basketball players around:

It’s Nancy Grace’s world, if only for people wanting to see her react to the Anthony verdict. There’s been a couple of update posts on her Facebook page, but nothing representing the white-hot reaction many are expecting. It should make for some entertaining television viewing. It should be noted that while Grace and Anthony should be considered winners after the verdict, so far, there’s only one loser, and it’s one who should not be forgotten:

Caylee Anthony.
