VIDEO: Rachel Jeantel Appears on CNN for Her First Interview Since Testifying in Court

Rachel Jeantel CNN Interview

CNN's Piers Morgan talks with Trayvon Martin's friend Rachel Jeantel during her first interview since testifying in court. Jeantel, who was on the phone with Trayvon minutes before his death, was the last person who talked to him before he was killed.

During the interview, Jeantel describes Trayvon as a "calm, chill, loving person" and said she never saw him being "aggressive" or "losing his temper." She admitted that he smoked weed about twice a week, but emphasized that this was normal where she is from. She also added that "weed don't make him go crazy, it just makes him go hungry."

Jeantel also responded to the mockery she has received regarding the way she speaks. She explained that she was born with an under-bite that makes it difficult to speak clearly. When asked if she had ever been bullied because of this, she sarcastically responded: "Look at me." They audience laughed.
