Trayvon Martin's friend called 'hostile witness'

It was another lively day in a Florida courtroom as a friend of Trayvon Martin is back on the stand and is being called a hostile witness.

Rachel Jeantel was on the phone with Martin right before he was shot and killed.

Defendant George Zimmerman told police he followed Martin because of an increase in crime in his neighborhood.

Jeantel admitted she lied about her age and why she didn't go to Martin's funeral.

"If an officer want to talk to me, know the exact story, everything about what happened that night they will reach me at my number. You got it?"

Jeantel's testimony is getting a lot of attention on social media because of her responses and body language.
