    Kim Kardashian is one of thousands who have taken to Twitter to voice their opinions about Troy Davis.

    Davis, who was convicted of murdering a police officer in 1989 but insists that he is innocent, is scheduled to be executed tonight in Georgia after exhausting the appeals process. His latest request, to be able to take a lie-detector test, was denied.

    And Kardashian, Rosario Dawson, Samantha Ronson, Sean "Diddy" Combs, John Legend and many of their fellow celebs are worked up over what they perceive to be a massive injustice.

    "I want to vent about the execution of Troy Davis! He is getting the death penalty tonight but I believe he is innocent!!! ," Kardashian tweeted early this morning. "All he wants is a polygraph test 2 prove he's innocent & the judicial system can't give that to him? Let's make a trending topic! Everyone google Troy Davis & read his story! NO ONE should die by lethal injection when there is this much doubt! Help save . There is to kill Troy Davis tonight. Here's the 411 >> PLEASE RT."

    Outkast's Big Boi tweeted that he was headed down to the prison in Jackson, Ga., for a scheduled rally and was encouraging his followers to email and call the parole board, the judge, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder—anyone who could possibly do anything, basically.

    "At this point if your'e in Atlanta or any where near , Jackson Georgia, is where u need to be , out of towners can man the phones," the rapper wrote.

    And "#TooMuchDoubt" definitely made the rounds today:
