WTF! First It Was Planking Then Tebowing Now Trayvoning [Photos]
Rucuss staffMay 24, 2012
There is a new fad that is happening amongst idiots across the Internet called Trayvoning.
This new fad has appeared on Facebook and has stirred controversy across the Internet. Its similar to “planking” but goes much deeper. Planking consisted of people laying face down in crazy locations with their arms to their sides. People would try and out do the next person doing it in crazy and dangerous locations. It was done for humor.
But Trayvoning is a low blow because it imitates the death of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. Its insensitive and very disrespectful.
People have been posting photos of themselves mimicking Martin’s murder by lying on the ground (usually wearing hoodies), and holding skittles and ice tea. Several Facebook pages were dedicated to the disgusting act, but have since been removed by the site.
This latest fad comes on the heels of an opportunist in Florida who was selling gun target hoodies in an attempt to capitalize off the 17-year-old’s death.
Check out photos below.
This is absolutely shameful and the people who participated should be beaten in the head with the ice tea and skittles. You can check out more photos here.
