Insensitive 'Trayvoning trend' sours Internet again

Washington, July 15 (ANI): The 'Trayvoning trend' that took over internet last year, has reportedly resurfaced as an Internet meme on Twitter.

According to the Washington Times, Trayvoning is a bizarre form of protest in support of Trayvon Martin, a Florida teen who was shot and killed in February 2012 while unarmed.

In the bizarre trend, people post pictures imitating the teen by posing as a dead body lying next to a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea.

Global Grind reacting to the trend said that while the enlightened people of the world black out their social media avatars in support of Trayvon Martin, the less sensitive bring back the 'Trayvoning' proving the insensitivity towards humanity.

President of the Greater Sacramento Urban League, James Shelby said that the answer to discourage such insensitive trending is more education and with conversations at home kids are educated in things they shouldn't do, the report added. (ANI)
