As previously reported, the last desperate plea for clemency made on behalf of Davis was turned down on Tuesday, despite having received an outpouring of support from those who believe that he was wrongly accused of killing a police officer in 1989.

The 42-year-old Savannah, Georgia, native is due to be executed on Wednesday at 7 p.m. local time for the shooting of off-duty cop Mark MacPhail, who was gunned down while rushing to the aid of a homeless man in a Burger King parking lot.

Earlier in the morning, Kim expressed how distraught she is over the troubling case, starting by saying, "I want to vent about the execution of Troy Davis! He is getting the death penalty tonight but I believe he is innocent!!!"

She went on to live up to her promised by venting further:

"All he wants is a polygraph test 2 prove he's innocent & the judicial system can't give that to him? Let's make #TroyDavis a trending topic!
