One person commented:

"You are a great actress. You can win the earthly justice but you can do nothing against divine !"

Whilst another wrote:

"That's her story, and HER ordeal. She's allowed to take control of it and use it any way SHE deems fit. It's her agony that she had to endure, and if she's able to make light of it now, then she is more than allowed to."

A third commentator added:

"Good God people. The girl is allowed to have a dark sense of humor. The only way to stay sane through the storm is to make yourself laugh. Sorry people don't know what a joke is anymore, Amanda."

Likewise, another comment read:

"I believe you are innocent of the murder of Meredith Kercher, Amanda, but really, this post is ridiculously tone-deaf. Surely, you must have expected some backlash?"

The European Human Rights Court awarded Knox $20,000 ( €18,400 or £15,800) in damages after finding out the Italian authorities molested her human rights.
