Rachel Jeantel was the star witness for the prosecution. She spoke to Trayvon Martin on the phone just moments before he was shot and killed.  

In this video clip, Jeantel’s friend Deborah Fakanlu reacts to all the negative comments and criticism Jeantel has received since she took the stand in the George Zimmerman trial..

“I feel like it's a lot for her and she's doing her best and I don't think they should give her a hard time,” Fakanlu says.
