The George Zimmerman trial and the circumstances surrounding Trayvon Martin’s death have brought out the absolute worst in America. If you were of the opinion that race wasn’t an issue in this country anymore then these events have to be a wakeup call.
As the trial itself trucks on, more and more negative sentiment has popped up from both sides of the ledger. This, though, has pushed things to another level.
Trade Digital, Inc. has developed an app for Android called “Angry Trayvon.” Basically Trayvon goes around beating up bad guys with daggers and various weapons. He also looks like a demon in a hoodie because of course he does.
And here’s the thing: people are going to flock to the game the more people trash it because that’s how things have gone involving the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman tragedy. Ugh. Just make it stop.
UPDATE: The app has been flagged and taken down. Here’s the statement from the game’s Facebook page.
The people spoke out therefore this game was removed from the app stores. Sorry for the inconvenience as this was just an action game for entertainment. This was by no means a racist game. Nonetheless, it was removed as will this page and anything associated with the game will be removed.
