“Your hoodie may be fatal, according to the ever controversial, Geraldo Rivera.”

As if the Feb. 26 shooting death of Florida high school student Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman, hasn’t sparked enough controversy, Geraldo Rivera fanned the flames just that much more when he chimed in Thursday evening tweeting, His hoodie killed Trayvon Martin as surely as George Zimmerman,” among other things.

Parks and Recreation‘sAziz Ansari among others responded quickly to the former talk show host’s comments, tweeting succinctly, “It’s really appropriate to tweet this any day, but seriously – F–k you Geraldo.”

It was recently reported that George Zimmerman who is now out of jail on bond has a website that has raised more than $200,000! The prosecution is currently seeking an increase on his bond.

How “trendy” social media makes injustice bothers me. People are easily distracted by the real issue & harbor on subsequent/ minor issues. The Martin case is a genuine injustice but before this tragedy did you know more about gun policies or Basketball Wives? …be honest.
