How strange! After the Derrick Rose rape trial was over, jurors couldn’t help but fangirl ALL OVER the acquitted athlete! The basketball star took a picture with the men who found him innocent, and now, fans are freaking out! Check out the Tweets.
Derrick Rose, 28, and his two male friends were acquitted on Oct. 19 of gang raping a woman in 2013, and now, the world stands divided. Regardless of how you feel about the athlete’s rape case, there’s certainly one group of people who were happy to see Derrick in their courtroom — the jurors! After the trial, the men who found Derrick not liable for sexual assault took a PHOTO with the basketball player, who was smiling from ear to ear.

The jurors are posing for pictures with Derrick Rose and the judge is cracking jokes in the courtroom, but sure, rape culture doesn't exist.

Derrick Rose taking photographs with the jurors is beyond embarrassing. Especially for the jurors.

Not only did the jurors clear Derrick Rose of rape, but they took pictures with him after the trial. Interesting 🤔😒

I must admit I didn't follow the Derrick Rose rape case so I can't comment, but posing & smiling with jurors right after the verdict? Uhh…

It seems wrong for Derrick Rose to be taking photos with smiling jurors after the not guilty verdict. Seems off to me

You get acquitted of rape charges and you are smiling taking pictures with jurors after? Derrick Rose is an absolute scrub

See, we’re not the only ones who think it’s totally bizarre that Derrick was chummy with the jurors two minutes after they found him innocent. Was the jury rigged with the athlete’s fans? This is the type of stuff that turns into a documentary like Making A Murderer or The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story. As we saw in those series, a great deal of people butted heads over whether or not the client was guilty, and the same goes for Derrick’s trial.
It was reported that a woman accused Derrick and two male friends of raping her inside her LA apartment. The woman admitted that she had been drinking that night, but accused Derrick’s crew of drugging her before the assault. Here’s the problem, though, this woman was in a relationship with the New York Knicks athlete at the time, which prompted the jury to believe that the sex was consensual. The jury made the unanimous decision that his former girlfriend was simply out to get Derrick.
HollywoodLifers, isn’t it weird that Derrick looks so friendly with jury? Do you think their decision was biased?
