Former girlfriend of Oscar Pistorius defends him on Twitter; ‘You have all my family’s love’

As Twitchy reported, one of FHM cover girl Reeva Steenkamp’s last tweets before she was shot to death on Valentine’s Day was a retweet urging women to wear black to protest rape and domestic abuse. Steenkamp’s boyfriend, South African paralympic champion Oscar Pistorius, has been charged with her murder. Jenna Edkins, a former girlfriend of “the Blade Runner,” stepped forward yesterday to vouch for Pistorius with the hashtag #loveandsupportoscar.

That sentiment didn’t take off, though, aside from a handful of tweets, despite coverage by the U.K.’s Daily Mail.
