Piers Morgan interviews Rachel Jeantel and she charms the audience, but why?

In Twitter world Jeantel is a hit. Some are calling her charming, but are they really doing Miss Jeantel a disservice? Is she really fine the way she is or should she work on her communication skills so she can be more understandable to the broader world?

Yesterday few people knew Rachel Jeantel, but today she is trending on line. Her looks, her speech even her demeanor has been bashed, but why? Some people in this country only see the Jeantels of the world on reality television. Rarely do they get to see the Jeanatels of the world simply share a factual account of an event in their life, and when they do too many take the opportunity to assasinate the character of a person they will never know.
