On Friday, Michelle Carter was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter by a Massachusetts judge for the suicide of her boyfriend Conrad Roy III in 2014. Twitter was quick to weigh in on the shocking verdict.

Text messages between the teenage couple were an aid to Carter‘s fate. As CNN reports, court documents show Carter sending messages saying things like, “You’re finally going to be happy in heaven. No more pain. No more bad thoughts and worries. You’ll be free.” She also told Roy that she thought his parents would “understand and accept” his suicide.

Even more damning are her specific points of advice on exactly how to commit the suicide. She told him that “if you emit 32-Hundred PPM of it for five or ten minutes, you will die within a half hour,” referring to carbon monoxide. Roy killed himself by locking himself in his truck and inhaling carbon monoxide.

The court found Friday that Carter was the cause of Roy’s death. “This court has found that Carter‘s actions and failure to act where it was her self-created duty to Roy since she put him in that toxic environment constituted reckless conduct,” said Bristol County Juvenile Court Judge Lawrence Moniz.

People across the country were quick to react to the case. Many on Twitter find this case horrifying. Others seem to be focusing more on the optics, and say that if this trial were ever to made into a movie, Cara Delevigne should play the role of Carter.
