Google Play Removes “Angry Trayvon” App From Play Store

There was considerable backlash against George Zimmerman's brother and defense team for their blatant attempts to paint Trayvon Martin as a drug-abusing thug. It was a woeful effort to provide justification for Zimmerman ignoring police warnings not to pursue Martin and subsequently shooting him. The judge in the case ruled that the evidence Zimmerman's team released, including photos and text messages of and from Martin, couldn't be used in the court. 

That hasn't stopped people from pushing the tired "uncontrollable black men on drugs" narrative that has been around since at least 1914 (Seriously, a 100-year bad argument? Do way better). An app called "Angry Trayvon" hit the Google Play store before it was removed, in which users walked around as a black kid in a hoodie killing "bad guys" who all happened to be white. 

Trayvon is angry and nobody can stop him from completing his world tour of revenge on the bad guys who terrorize cities everyday.

Use a variety of weapons to demolish Trayvon’s attackers in various cities around the world. As you complete a level, you will notice more bad guys coming at Trayvon at a faster pace and a deadlier attack.

If you like to attack from far, then purchase the ‘dagger’ as you will be able to throw it at your enemies for the kill.

If you want to dominate the leaderboards across the world, then make sure you collect the money that the bad guys will drop once you kill them to increase your score.

How charming. Fortunately, Google put the kibosh on the ignorance before it really got going.
